“If Farina has learned anything in his 20-plus years as a musician, it’s how to turn the worst parts of life into the greatest art.” Alternative Press

“Raw, unorthodox, and honest, his style blends gritty blues riffs with jazzy, prose-like lyrical structure.” The A.V. Club

“Geoff Farina has something many musicians could only dream of attaining.” Americana UK

“Farina’s brilliant guitar technique can, as it did in Karate, still threaten to make these folk songs sound mannered. But luckily, he’s learned to let his sweet, rolling vocals shoulder the emotional load on these tracks. It is quite a feat to see a guy, particularly one who left his last band at the height of its powers, try something completely different, and totally succeed.” Popmatters

“Prick up Your Ears’ describes small-town soldiers departing for Iraq with commendable sobriety in a folksy idiom, that emphasises their timeless circumstance” Stewart Lee, Sunday Times

“a serenity that can reveal both beauty and melancholy” Beat The Static

“both a fine collection of contemporary songs and a homage to legendary folk guitarists” Slow Thrills

“Former Karate front-man pens beautifully realised folk-leaning love letter to the Kennebec River.” Pocket Jury

“one of Geoff Farina’s most generously melodic collections, which repays patience with warmth from a distinctive songwriting intellect.” DOA

“consistently rich and rewarding” clicky clicky music
