His most recent release, Prophet on the Barstool, was heralded as a "deeply rooted and emotionally driven record with a wide spanning depth tugging on the heartstrings by calling upon both personal and universal truths often learned the hard way, with themes understood in any language.

"A Country Folk Troubadour in the early Dylan/Woody Guthrie vein."
