Hail The Size

“Now that’s a good record…”
Steve Earle, Air America Radio

"One of the best albums of the year."
Vintage Guitar Magazine

“Maria McKee (Lone Justice) lends her throaty powerhouse vocals to three of the songs on I Can’t Die in L.A., and also her piano talents to seven of the twelve songs here. From there, it just gets better and better. The band is solid, epically in the quieter moments, but can also rock-out with the best of them. They nail down the dynamics of each song with the articulate passion of an old Van Morison record, pumped by Maria’s gospelly fervor. Heartfelt emotions about love, faith, and morality require listeners to share the humanity and sensitivity on songs like “Drift Away,” “Wind-Up Heart,” or “Hail Mary.” Hail the Size sing and play like they’ve got one night onstage in a two-bit bar to prove themselves.- They come through with flying colors!”, Phil Rainone

“One after the other, all the tracks could be radio hits. Absolutely no moment of weakness on this CD.”, Belgium

“Reminiscent of Townes Van Zandt.”
No Depression

“A roots-rock romp with more than a hint of Hayes Carll.”
Beat Surrender UK

“The songwriting is ace. Don’t let this obscure near-classic pass you by.”

“It’s a slow burner that will keep you coming back and humming its songs long after the tracks have ended.”
Innocent Words

"Steve Earle is probably green with envy.”, Belgium

“What separates this from the pack is memorable songs, tasteful arrangements, lush, lonesome production and Maria McKee (yeah – from Lone Justice).”
Innocent Words

“All the songs are originals mixing clever lyrics, dark humor, and some healthy cynicism – wrapping them up in Ezell’s convincing vocal.”
