At its most pained, Christopher Denny’s bone-rattling tenor sounds like an eensy little man crying out, roasting on a spit in hell. At its most joyful, his singing voice resembles the shaky squeal of winning the lottery, or love. -Fader

"The record itself feels like a sort of lifeline, as the layers of desperation, helplessness, courage and redemption shine through the story-songs" -The Bluegrass Situation

"The peculiar sweetness of his expression is prone to both pique curiosity and resonate." -NPR

“There’s no getting around Christopher Denny’s voice. At once impossibly fragile and immovably sturdy, it’s a haunting, alien thing.” -Aquarium Drunkard

"He sings in a voice pitched somewhere between the winnowy whine of Jimmie Dale Gilmore and the more forceful yodel of Slim Whitman." -Pitchfork
