Quotes

Uncut Deceptively easy on the ear, he's cut back on instrumental clutter to create the intimate mood of a perpetually moonstruck gypsy, clip-clopping to the classic rhythm of American country and rock'n'roll. Part-Everlys, part-Orbison, Burch wears these wonderful songs like a second hide, slipping effortlessly into honky-tonk, old-time swing and lonesome folk.The sort of record you wish more people made, rather than the lone stoking of a dying art. But then again, to sound this simple—this wise—is anything but straightforward.

Guardian The songs have the mysterious ability to glide just above the carpet, as if they are playing on a magic jukebox in a haunted honky tonk.

Not at all retro, Burch is a very measured and innovative caretaker of many musical traditions. A graduate of Nashville’s Lower Broadway bar scene, he captures and nurtures and builds upon trad country, country blues and folk idioms in a very knowing way. Modern life channeled through a Jimmie Rodgers-Hank Williams filter.
