“Who is this kid with the big, bold, classic country sound? Where’d these great hooks and pretty steel guitar moans come from? And what’s he saying there at the end of ‘Always Searching?’ It’s a little forward for me, I must say. It’s all a bit of a mystery really. Kinda of a time and timeless all at once. I bet young kids would love this as much as retired grandparents might. Except for the end of that one song maybe. Any how, I enjoy spinning this sucker so he must be doing something right.” -Vish Khanna, CBC Music
