    Small Town Heroes may mourn victims of violence but it is emphatically a record stuffed with good times.

    Small Town Heroes is the band's fifth and best album. [May 2014, p.68]
  3. Mar 12, 2014
    At times on Small Town Heroes, Segarra echoes them [Karen Dalton, Lucinda Williams, or Gillian Welch] precisely, taking what they do best and making it her own. That's a rung many have reached for but most have never grasped.

    Its singer has found a home and sense of being for her voice--a voice capable and deserving of a population larger than the album’s title.
  5. Feb 18, 2014
    With Small Town Heroes, Segarra proves herself one of the most compelling stylists in a folk revival full of suspicious acts either too beholden to tradition or too uncritical to make much of it.
  6. Mar 26, 2014
    Small Town Heroes holds enough versatility and charm to captivate even the most jaded soul; songs that will wend their way into your consciousness and stay with you long after the album is done.
  7. Mar 27, 2014
    You might call it a postmodern take on 20th-century American music, but it's so warm and welcoming that it never feels like an exercise in technique or a mere demonstration of knowledge.
