Janelle Rogers, Green Light Go,


Their sound is at once huge and intimate...Their enthusiasm is infectious. I was grinning like an idiot and bouncing along before I realized what was happening to me.
- Erica Elam, The Chicago Reader


The electricity from the band took the crowd by force. I couldn’t help but smile and clap along at the songs. Not only did the band play well – but they all looked ecstatic doing so.
- Pete Kosmal, Midwest Action


 [Friddle] deftly explores just about every nook and cranny of modern folk, from revivalist antique appropriation to protest songs to modern love songs. The immaculate arrangements would sell it, if his lithe voice hadn’t already given it away. Amazing stuff.

-Independent Clauses


just…stunning. They felt like home and I love them for that.
- Samantha, Folk Hive


 ...good music with an inventive and creative twist...

-M.V. Casey, Banjo Hangout
