…“Montgomery Church make a rare kind of hill country magic: spinning gossamer tapestries with timeless acoustic sounds, quicksilver vocal harmonies, and the kind of unassuming storytelling that burrows deep into the subconscious. With their glorious debut LP, the duo frequently draws from the same wellspring as Gillian Welch and Dave Rawlings, while also tipping their hats to all corners of the trad. country and Americana compass: Few albums of recent memory plumb such depths of feeling with such exquisite ease”….. – Gareth Hipwell (Country Update Magazine)

…”Montgomery Church are like the Australian version of Gillian Welch and Dave Rawlings but if Gillian was the daughter of Allison Krauss…sitting on a porch, with tea not whiskey…I’m a tad obsessed…The most graceful duo literally gracing stages right now.” … – Fanny Lumsden (Golden Guitar Award Winner & ARIA Award Winner)
