Album Notes
“mbilly is about to blow your minds. His forthcoming full-length, Mister Nobody Baby, is really, really good. The slightly macabre collection sets the Portland balladeer’s sharp, poetic lyrical observations to minimal guitar picking and orchestration. It’ll remind you a bit of Okkervill River until mbilly turns a Cheap Trick cover into a tearjerker: At that point you’re pretty sure that this is its own animal.”—Casey Jarman, Music Editor, Willamette Week

…he has a voice that flexes and ripples like Jack LaLanne's pectorals—classic and classy, despite the nakedness.—portland mercury

It is a constant curiosity when younger people sing with the wisdom of aged experience: Helfrich is an upbeat, personable young man, and one wonders, where does this depth come from? Mbilly's songs are so powerfully understated, so unaffectedly real. Reflective insight and good songwriting make for a good listen.—opbmusic (Oregon public broadcasting)

mbilly’s a guy picking a guitar, a solo, somewhat twangy, folk songwriter that’s unassuming to a fault, save for some damn good stage banter, and a voice that sounds as if it’s somehow aged two decades beyond the twenty-something I know Helfrich to be.—localcut.com
