Quotes & Highlights
“A folk-pop trio from Seattle, performs funny original songs whose exquisite musical detail and subtle needling wit attain a level of craft not often seen in pop.” —Stephen Holden, _The New York Times _
“The group has achieved an almost cult status … their music ranges from irreverent to ironic, from satirical to sad. And despite the folk tag, their music defies categorization as it incorporates elements of jazz, pop, Broadway, reggae and classical.” —Associated Press
“Singers Ratshin, O’Neill and Adler are pitch-perfect in their delivery of often complex harmonic arrangements. … The trio officially bills itself as a ‘folk’ outfit, but has none of the naiveté that label might suggest. These are nicely edgy, sour-sweet songs, written for grown-ups.” —Michael Upchurch, The Seattle Times
