Press Quotes “[Rose and Davis] swap lead vocals to suit the song and songwriter, a sort of Lennon/McCartney arrangement and get it right everytime: heartfelt yes, earthy certainly, but never languid. ‘Burnin at Both Ends’ and ‘Shift Work’ show both our heroes at their most gritty. The reality is that Seadar Rose and Aaron Davis go together like bacon and eggs. This is the sound of America, untamed and infinite.” ~Americana UK (8 of 10 stars)
“Screen Door Porch delightfully combined the softer acoustics of Western America with the force of their Southern country vibe into a magnetic, energy-fuelled dialogue between lead vocals Aaron Davies and Seadar Rose. Davis’ deep, ever so slightly husky tone marries Rose’s sultry bluesy nonchalance in colourful conversation. Sometimes they’ll oscillate between one and the other, but often they’ll let the ongoing back-and-forth turn into heartwarming harmony, revealing the true power of the fronting duet.” ~The Deli National

“Playing a mix of blues, hard rocking electric country and a few traditionals, the band evokes associations of the hard life, hard partiers, and also the warm folksiness that one inevitably comes to experience and appreciate.

“Transcend takes the listener to all parts of globe, in all sorts of wild places.” ~Jackson Hole News & Guide
