"...I must confess that this is an absolute gem of an album that finds the duo not only facing some deeply dark and personal demons, but raising their game to an unprecedented level too."

Martin Noakes, Great Dark Wonder, August 2019

" [Howling Back at the Wounded Dog] contains the fleetingness of summer, the wistfulness of romance, the magic of fireflies. But it also contains the hard-scrapple beauty of living: The scrapes and bumps accrued while working toward a goal, a summit, a golden moment."

--Alli Marshall, Mountain Xpress, August 2019

"Even when the pair’s lyrics take an occasional turn toward the melancholy, there’s an underlying sense of happiness (or at least optimism) that leavens the vibe. And the voices of Graham and Tyler — both of which avoid the affected, mannered tone so prevalent in much of today’s Americana — combine seamlessly."

--Bill Kopp, Mountain Xpress, February 2018

Full Article/Album Review Here

"...while the duo’s love story is indeed a grand tale, go see them for the music. The new record is terrific as are their previous releases. But don’t mind me if I get a little starry-eyed with a cartoon heart throbbing out of my chest with the knowledge that it was music that brought these two together in the first place."

--Aimsel Ponti, Maine Today, November 2018
