"As he sings his slow, simple songs, you are taken back to a dustbowl-era mentality. A time when the folk singers were few and far between; a time when the folk singers weren't just good, they were damn near perfect." -Daniel Anderson guestpost

"The plight of the stark, lo-fi troubadour is not an easy one. In a post-Bright Eyes, post-Mountain Goats world, indie rock has seen just about every riveting trick one lonely man with a guitar can get away with--as well as the ones he can't. But when Ben Trickey strums and sings about the dark, emotional side of life as an imperfect man, you believe him. The characters and narratives in his songs resonate with somber timelessness, scorched tones and dirty production qualitites that add depth to his frail and frazzle arrangements." -critics pick Best local singer/songwriter '09 Creative Loafing

Jonathan Griffin has been playing violin with Ben since late 2007 and has shown up at live shows and on records.
