Recorded at Peace of Eden, filled with protest, sincerity and brutal honesty, Rural is a legitimate album, powered by strong lyrics, good musicianship and John’s unmistakable voice – if you’re looking for songs that bring back memories of Tree63, you’re looking in the wrong place, buddy. I mean, listen to ‘Jack Kerouac’s Blues’; it’s completely different from anything he has ever done before, and also shows that John is well-versed in the history of rock and blues.  John has successfully grasped the singer/songwriter philosophy and made sure that Rural is an accurate representation of what’s on his mind and in his heart. Overall, the album has many lessons to share with you and will keep you captivated- Josh Smith
