    "9 out of 10 stars! Track after track, Murphy shows why he is one of the best songwriters in popular music and unjustly flying under the mainstream radar. This is music with many beating hearts and their pulse is loud!"
    - Cyrus Rhodes for No Depression , 2016

    "A fire-breathing virtuoso of the violin, Chris Murphy crams more musical mileage into a short set than most players do in an entire tour. Murphy does the devil's handiwork on four strings with a winning presence and a gypsy's knack."
    - James Rotondi, Editor-in-chief for Future Music Magazine
