“Guitarist and singer Matthew Fox's music is steeped in country blues, bluegrass and Texas swing. Equal parts originals and traditional songs, the album has a toe tapping, easygoing, front-porch vibe. Fox's playing is solid, and he invites a few choice guests along for the ride, including Peter Ostroushko on fiddle and mandolin”.
