‘Still Testifying is a triumph’
Bob Harris,  BBC RADIO 2

‘Where gospel, country and Southern soul happily collide. Terrific’
UnCut 8/10 ********

Like Nick Lowe, Weston King and Dalgleish, are able to create songs that make you feel that you know them while being quite new and gorgeous.
Record Collector 4/5 ****

The Guardian 4/5****    The Daily Express 4/5****

Even more depth and darkness than on their previous two albums. A stroke of genius.
Country Music People 5/5 ***** 

Laying claim to be the best country album of the year for the third time and shaping up to be their most successful yet. Long may they continue to bear witness.
