MUSIC AND PHOTOS

 

“A nice balance of upbeat tunes and darker ballads...sumptuous harmonies throughout, exceptional musicianship, tasteful
arrangements, and the production is
most impressive.”
Armin Heurich (WBVR)

“The songs are all well written, I love the
vocal delivery and bluegrass instrumentation,
and the production is superb.”
Allan Watkiss (UK Country Radio)

“The Good Intentions have raised the bar for second albums...the authentic instrumentation
and old timey feeling of this CD harkens back
to a simpler time...there is not a bad song on
this CD...Peter Davies deserves to be mentioned
as a songwriter in the same breath as Phil Lee, John Prine and Kevin Welch...hopefully this
CD will give them the exposure they deserve.”
Andy Ziehli (Americana Gazette)
