“From the perfect harmonies to the story that unfolds, “Loneliest House In Town” is an incredible example of how musicianship, storytelling and performance can come together to create magic. Simon Flory and Morris Holdahl filled the Boot Shop with such beautiful music, we did not want it to end. If you find yourself in Ft. Worth or any place these two might be playing, do yourself a favor and make sure you catch the show.”

“This could happily sidle up alongside the likes of Carter Family, John Hartford,  Gillian Welch and Ralph Stanley. It’s one helluva a track and all credit goes to Flory for not following the more well-trodden path. This is a real gem.”

“From the opening of the album’s first track (and also its lead single) “Peter Mack Built a Semi-Truck” to the closing of “Spanish Fandango,” an instrumental tune that was one of his first learned on the banjo, the album’s sparse instrumentation allow Flory’s stories to shine.”

“Like a memory that strikes a chord in you and so you replay it again and again, only in the form of a collection of songs that feel more like a collection of short stories.”

“”If My Mule Had Wings” was literally written while riding a mule, inspired by a fantasy of a beast of burden sprouting wings and singing while toiling away in the furrows of life. It’s a song of defiance and inclusivity, inviting the listener to be themselves and be free.”

“Radioville” is an ode to a town where not much happens and no one gets out…Flory’s fluid voice makes you think there just may be a way out of the dark, dank nooks and crannies of this town that time forgot. Maybe, thanks to Flory and his friends, we can remember why a town like this is worth singing about in the first place.”
