Kind words from our peers:
“…these guys have the creativity, open-mindedness, and chops to show us how much is actually possible. Very cool stuff… love it!” ~ Mike Marshall
“an impossibly tight, intertwined duet… Small Town Therapy are effortlessly in control. Their years spent in bands and on the road together are perhaps to blame — and thank — for this balance. In such a loose format, merely two voices bouncing off of and responding to one another, one might expect that freneticism to inevitably run off the rails, but it never does.” ~ Justin Hiltner, The Bluegrass Situation
