    Their thrilling music rooted in old country with touches of blues and gospel can't help but remind you of Jack and Meg and Johnny and June. [Jun 2013, p.93]

    All 11 tracks on the album jump, shout and twang the heartstrings, albeit with a knowing wink. [Jun 2013, p.105]

    Their debut album is a delight, from the uncomplicated bluesy strut of Tickin' Bomb to the brass inflections on the knowingly tongue-in-cheek Hail Hail.

    Trent is as solid as an anvil in his straightman's role, while Hearst is a real firecracker. [Sep 2012, p.85]

    O' Be Joyful would be their resulting--and across-the-board winning--entrée to celebrity chefdom.

    Their new record O' Be Joyful is a delightful combination of knee-slapping, bordering-on-gospel folk tracks and bluesy guitar-driven rock.

    There's nothing here that we haven't heard many times before, but for many that will be the heart of their appeal.

    Most of the songs, including the strong opening track, concern the duo's history as a couple and a band.
