• “The sound they found is not the Texas-style country rock that you might expect from an Austin band. Instead, this album showcases the quartet’s mastery of a diversity of styles, from the Beatles-esque harmonies and psychedelic influences of “Land Mines” and the funk of “Find My Way Back” to the alt-rock of “Kings of Friday Night,” the old-school classic rock of the ballad “Falling Out of Love” and the barroom blues of “One More Time.”

    Press Play: Marin-bred guitarist and South Austin Moonlighters release debut album

    - Paul Liberatore ~ Marin Independent Journal “Press Play”

  • “The South Austin Moonlighters are one of my favorite bands. With every song each member of the band brings excellence to the mix, both musically and lyrically.”

    - Paula Nelson ~ KDRP Live – Paula Nelson Band

  • “It’s hard enough to get this many talented guys in one room much less on the same stage. The first time I saw them I could feel the energy and really enjoyed seeing that they were having as much fun as the packed house was.”

    - Joe Ables of The Saxon Pub

  • “The musicians are real, the music is real, and most importantly to the band, the joy is real. The South Austin Moonlighters know they have found a good thing and it is obvious that their audience does too. If the packed house is any indication, it does not look like either the band or the audience will be giving it up any time soon.”

    - Ellen Von Essen of austinfusionmagazine.com

  • “The South Austin Moonlighters started as a collaboration of all stars but seems to be settling into way more than that from my point of view. The key as I see it is the total unselfish attitude amongst the four men who seem to be only trying to push each other to make the live experience that much better!”

    - Eddie Ferranti of houstonmusicreview.com

  • “What began as a way to let loose between regular gigs has turned into something more serious, with gospel harmonies that evoke the Band of Heathens. In fact, like the Heathens, the Moonlighters travel the Americana highway with taste and a manner that’s good-natured and down to earth.”

    - Jim Caligiuri of The Austin Chronicle
