Writing for the Folk & Acoustic Music Exchange, Mike Jurkovic says it like this:
"I early on thought 'Oh, so this is what a solo disc by Jeff Tweedy (Uncle Tupelo/Wilco/Loose Fur) produced by Daniel Lanois (U2/Dylan/Emmylou/Willie/himself) would sound like.' Then I listened some more and realized Thayer had his own ideas about things." (http://www.acousticmusic.com/fame/p03771.htm)
When it comes to music with deep roots, Bow Thayer delivers the real thing. Often compared to the legends such as Dylan, John Prine and Gram Parsons, Thayer’s music bares the battle scars of a personal journey that has included tours of duty in every musical genre from punk to reggae and bluegrass to delta blues. Drawing on this wealth of experience and standing on the shoulders of giants, Thayer’s musical vision extends beyond the horizon while taking in the entire landscape. You owe it to yourself to try him.
