Praise for Amongst the Coyotes and Birdsongs:

“Lyrics so simple and deceptive make Amongst the Coyotes and Birdsongs perfect for a lazy summer day, whiling away time on the back deck, feeling all the feelings.” - CBC Music

“Nick Ferrio & His Feelings are their generation’s Blue Rodeo, even if they’re still one of Canada’s best-kept secrets.” - CBC Music

“He approaches the genre most successfully in his songwriting and instrumentals rather than twangy vocal delivery. He’s an old-school crooner, conveying warmth through simple lines.” - NOW Toronto

“...a gentle frolic into even-paced and country-laced folk songs. Diving into a full listen of the album is like shambling through a forest-
ed dirt road with a friend, full of tales of both darkness and new dawns.” - Exclaim!

“Never ostentatious, always sincere and simply assembled, Amongst the Coyotes and Birdsongs is a charming, thoroughly enjoyable listen from start to finish.” - Quick Before It Melts
