"more hooks and lures than a Bass Pro Shop" --Bill Hurley, The Alternate Root June 27, 2013

From the New York Music Daily, June 20, 2013:
"...there is only one Joe Maynard, a crooner with a deviously lyrical wit... The first track, Big News, I’m Cryin’ has a western swing vibe fueled by Bruce Harvie’s sideswiping slide guitar...The next two songs share a mysterious, hypnotic swaying vibe. Tin of Tea is an enigmatic account of a damaged woman who may or may not have killed her man: Maynard keeps you guessing. Killer Inside is considerably darker, Maynard’s vocals running through what sounds like a Leslie speaker for a creepy, watery effect, Harvie adding a long, slinky slide guitar solo. The last track is an unexpectedly gentle acoustic waltz spiked with Harvie’s mandolin..."
