"Django Reinhardt meets Ray Lamontagne in a powerhouse blend of gypsy jazz, bluegrass, classical, and folk music. A beautiful merging of fiery instrumentals and expertly crafted songwriting."”

— Splitman Media

"The genuine honesty of the album’s storytelling is as equally genuine as the chemistry Phan has with the musicians crafting with him in the studio. The group sounds seamless as they bob and weave through bluegrass jangle, ramshackle gypsy waltz, soft-hearted folk balladry and every stop of the train in between."”

Christopher Hedden, On The Back Edge of the Beat
