"Now that is a voice that has gone through a couple of scrapes in its time, come out all the wiser and confident as a result. That gravitas makes this tune all the more listenable. Flickers of Bruce Hornsby on occasion but that may have been down to the fine arrangements. You can feel the heart pounding reach a crescendo as it progresses and in the process we reciprocated with a handshake and a thank you for the craft displayed here. " [2/10/2018]


"Strong influences of Gregg Allman, Sturgill Simpson and Nathaniel Rateliff can be heard throughout the track, powerfully blending Mickelson’s vocals with his rough, hard rock instrumentals."

—SF Weekly

“It’s American folk-Rock with a post punk edge, rustic but scarred.”
