Timeless and utterly much Woody Guthrie as Chance the Rapper.
— We Are: The Guard
Man this is some gorgeous stuff. Conover is a hell of a fingerstyle guitarist and he has an arresting vocal style, with a ton of presence.
— The Portland Phoenix
Springsteen-esque at points, yet soaked in an almost John Hughes sense of romanticism...These are songs with real heart and character, that demand repeated listens.
— Crack In The Road
...Genuine and true and [hits] home in a way similar to other folk greats such as Iron and Wine.
— We All Want Someone To Shout For
