“It’s an auspicious start, and one that could lead to all sorts of interesting outcomes with subsequent releases from the group. “Southwire” is an early contender for one of Duluth’s albums of the year.”
-Tony Bennett, Duluth News Tribune
“Recorded this past year, the eight hymn-like folk spirituals on Southwire’s self-titled debut come alive via Small’s plaintive and soulful vocals, a mix of lyrical spoken word and booming singing from Larson, and the timeworn instruments used to compose the songs.
Elmquist’s subtle but steady drumming, Larson’s blues-influenced guitar work, and Small’s lilting piano strains all blend elegantly into haunting melodies that sound like they have been carried on the winds of the past.”
