In that place between front porch greetings and the last drops of Kentucky bourbon lies a sound so rich you can't help but sit back with a corncob pipe, close your eyes, and let it take you to a midsummer night. Influenced as much by Kerouac and Vonnegut as by Dylan and Votolato, jascha marries inimitable lyricism and heartrending soul with gritty folk rock, poignant harmonies and the kind of country that takes you back to the spirit of Guthrie himself.
"...leathery tales of discovery and melodic chronicles of the journey to get there. [The] songs engage you; they ebb and flow on an ocean of magical sounds." - NUVO Magazine
"Only jascha could chug half a bottle of whiskey without blinking, then stop your heart with his beautiful introspection." - Headphones Magazine
"Their songs are sorrowful but beautiful, along the lines of the late, great Elliott Smith." - N. Selm
"Cowboy rock-n-roll by a band that worships the Beatles and Vonnegut and survives on gummy worms and whiskey." - Pete Felix
"The complexity of this unapologetically indie group was reminiscent of Elvis Costello and Bright Eyes, with a smattering of Nickel Creek thrown in for good measure." - Emma Faesi in NUVO
"...best description I could give you is if John Lennon decided to make a bluegrass record with Johnny Cash.' - Taulbee Jackson
"...their carefully composed blend of country and folk-inspired indie rock brought people to the stage. Their songs have catchy lyrics, make use of traditional instrumentation like accordion, banjo, and mandolin, and feature four-part harmony. Even when dealing dealing with broken strings and a duct-taped guitar, Jascha showed they have mastered a subtle blend of the rough and sweetly soft." - Laura Mathews in NUVO
