"BEFORE WE MET, I KNEW WE'D MEET"
"Hymn #101" is Joe Pug's stunning lyricism at it's finest, and a powerful reminder why he is respected by critics and peers as one of the finest songwriters of his generation"
"Unless your surname is Dylan, Waits, Ritter or Prine, you could face-palm yourself to death trying to pen songs half as inspired as the 10 tracks on Joe Pug’s debut."--Paste Magazine
'Windfall', his most accomplished work to date... elevates his work to the level of some of his influences, which presumably include Jason Isbell and Ryan Adams' work with Whiskeytown. If you throw a dash of Springsteen's 'Nebraska' into the mix, you'll have a good idea of what to expect here, although Pug is too accomplished to make his own brand of Americana sound derivative."--Contact Music
