"His mean-ass slide guitar work reminded me of Duane Allman and the butter-knife wielding Cedell Davis. And his songs about being beat-down, love won & lost and traveling both literally and figuratively were well-complemented by his gentle but deeply emotive vocals. "--Music Fog
New American Farmers www.newamericanfarmers.org
"Paul Knowles and Nicole Storto don't need help--these insightful folkie rockers hold a mirror to Americana as well as anyone-but Tom Waits trumpeter Ara Anderson and the Real Vocal String Quartet drop by anyway, making this rich and unique disc that much stronger."-M Music Magazine
"Brand New Day, the upcoming debut release under the band’s new nom de plume, weaves tales of lives adrift in a new reality, all set atop a superb Americana soundtrack. Good And Sober, perhaps my favorite NAF song of the album, weighs in on the revelation for why it’s finally time to find a cure, “when I was a boy each day was a gift, and I want to unwrap them again.” Everywhere, the competing nomination to Good And Sober, is a lighthearted, jangly romp featuring Gene Parsons on banjo that clearly invokes his Byrds and Flying Burrito Brothers heritage…I also have to point out there are several sweet, sweet injections of trumpet from Nicole Storto…"-Twangville
All Spots to Black www.allspotstoblack.com
"Philip’s played on tours and/or albums with most of your favorite artists. To list them all would make someone sound like the most pretentious alt-country-cana name dropper ever or an American Songwriter editor with tourettes, “Jeff-frickin-Tweedy, Gary Loris shit!, f@ckin Ethan Johns damn!, G-d d*ck damn Gomez! Brian ass Wright?!?” And as you read this, Philip’s getting ready to walk on stage in Jakarta. So, yeah, he’s got the professional musician thing down pat. (So) when an artist who earns his living making great musicians sound even better puts out his own record, you sit down, shut up, and listen."--No Depression
