“Jeff and Sarah are great artists and great people . . . Their music rings true. That’s all you need to know about these folks.”
—Lloyd Maines, Grammy Award Winning Producer, Dixie Chicks

“This music is pure & wonderful Americana . . . the mountains, and the people who make up their culture are beatifically sculpted into words by Jeff and Sarah. Listen to life from their perspective. It’ll reach down and grab ya! I know it did me.”
—Larry Cordle, writer, “Murder on Music Row,” “Highway 40 Blues,” and others.
