"The eleven songs that make up this irrepressible effort come across as so exuberant, so effusive, so infused with freewheeling enthusiasm, that any attempt to typecast them inevitably comes up short. Veering from a quiet pluck to resounding refrains, the band catches fire each time out…" -- No Depression
“Snappy rock and chamber folk frames their tales of their parents' dreams and struggles to find purchase in America." – Wall Street Journal
“[Run River North] has a powerful alternative, folk foundation… The overall catchiness of the music being played is shadowed by the intimacy of their lyrical and instrumental intricacies. From fiddles to pounding base drum, this band builds, explodes, and soothes from one song to the next.” -- LA Record (live review)
