“A beautifully literate album that deserves to be heard by everyone.” —Mike Morrison,  AmericanRootsUK.com

“The Winterlings make few concessions to commercial credence, but their beautiful folk-tinged songs are so uniformly affecting, no extra additives are necessary. Remarkably evocative and emotionally inspired, title song “American Son” is an anthem for the ages.” —Lee Zimmerman, Goldmine

“Intelligent songwriting and high class harmonies from the American wilderness.” —Peter Churchill, Americana-UK 

“I clipped the seat belt into place, and thirty minutes later I was still sitting in the car park almost breathless and with tears streaming down my face.  If like me you like the deeper and more ethereal end of Folk Music, you will love this album.” —Alan Harrison, The Rocking Magpie

“A very fine album.” —Noel Casey, After Midnight 103.2 Dublin City FM

 

Press Quotes ~ Poems That Live As People 

"There’s no denying the immediately infectious approach that underscores practically every one of the ten tracks found here... They’re more than simply superb; they’re absolutely spellbinding as well... Poems That Live As People feels more like a milestone, one that sets this duo apart and establishes their spectacular, singular sound." —No Depression
 

 Press Quotes ~ You Are Acres

“The kind of album clearly capable of casting its spell, and once that’s accomplished,
it refuses to let go.”—No Depression 

"...a gorgeous follow-up to their stunning debut. In today’s ricochet world, The Winterlings’ new record resonates well, making for a magnificent respite." —PASTE 

“It’s hard not to be drawn into the poetry of the band’s new album, You Are Acres.” —Stereo Subversion 

"A gorgeous collection of songs." —PopMatters 

“Filled with imagery pulled from the absurdly gorgeous region we live in, You Are Acres is the product of The Winterlings’ introspection.”—The Seattle Times 
 

“The Winterlings have a way of connecting with an audience that not a lot of bands
have the ability to do. There's a realness there... it's like being part of the family.
Going to a Winterlings show feels like coming home to nest.” —KSER


"Five years since their first album came out, The Winterlings have released You Are Acres, and it was certainly worth the wait. Its lyrics are reminiscent of an incredibly good book. Listeners can smell the apples Birdsall and Bowden sing of, they can feel the moss-covered grass, they can envision the cedars breathing in and out and the rivers flowing. The Winterlings have painted a picture, bringing immeasurable life to their music." —Mxdwn.com
