“Tom Petty-ish rock and Americana with a fondness for the sounds of acts such as Nick Lowe or Big Star.” -Burlington Free Press
“The mainstream music world badly needs records like this to bubble up from ‘Real America’.” -Seven Days
 “I first heard Lowell in Washington, D.C. and I immediately stopped talking to people and listened, really getting into his superb guitar playing, excellent voice and songs. Then I got him as opener with my band the Rumour, who were equally impressed.  Listen to him.” -Graham Parker
