"With excellent musicianship, thoughtful songwriting, and a natural aptitude for Americana, the quartet does justice to the genre. In a town where folk is a lot bigger than country, and at a time when the label 'country' itself refers primarily to an inauthentic corporate product, Hoodang's thoughtful, accomplished Americana is truly valuable.

And he's got a dry leather strap of a voice to go with his songs."

"Sometimes all a country song needs is a plucky mandolin and a melancholy banjo, and this Ann Arbor trio makes the most of its simple, catchy ramblers. Frontman David Rossiter has a tinder-dry voice tailor-made for pensive road maxims; gleaming steel only adds to his authority." - Download.com
"Fine Morning is one of those so-good-they're-scary tunes that force you to hit the repeat button just to make sure that you really heard what you just heard. Then it lingers in your head for a long, long time." - W. Kim Heron, Detroit Metro Times, WDET
