"(Spirits of the Red City) plays with the airy intimacy and elegance of a minimalist duo, with wistful themes and relatively spare orchestrations: a simple cello line, a gently strummed guitar or a lonely fiddle. Spirits of the Red City singer Will Garrison has a whiskey-soaked voice that's a little weary but full of honesty and passion."
- National Public Radio

"It's the sort of heartbreak you don't want to let go of, the joy you can't fully embrace. Taken together, though, all these emotional ambiguities and musical disharmonies somehow add up to something that, in the end, is incredibly pretty."
- Max Ross, City Pages
Suzanne Vallie
Suzanne Vallie
"Suzanne Vallie writes unusual folk songs that are at times sweet and childlike, and at other times haunting and seductive.
A roots-y aesthetic runs through her music, and her lyrics
paint vivid (and often weird) pictures of small town, rural life
Her honest, unadorned voice rings beautifully over her often
spare arrangements…"
- Meg Ruddick, NPR's Second Stage
