'Linsteadt has a surfer’s smile and vocal delivery that calls to mind Nick Drake and early Neil Young, soulful and smooth beyond his years' - No Depression
'Linsteadt’s writing, vocals, and performance are all outstanding. His style is at times experimental, but always deeply and importantly melodic.' -Ear to The Ground Music
