AS HEARD ON GARRISON KEILLOR'S "A PRAIRIE HOME COMPANION"
The duo’s plaintive, sweet melodies will draw you in and linger like the cheap cologne of a traveling Bible salesman. This debut was recorded and mixed by John Keane (R.E.M., Uncle Tupelo) in Athens, GA and features the talents of ex-Whiskeytown-er Caitlin Cary and Thad Cockrell, Railroad Earth, Sally Van Meter, the Persuasions' Jerry Lawson and Burrito Brother and all-around session player Al Perkins.

"From the first to the final, each cut is strong enough to take a bow on it's own. An intriguing package of songs from a formidable duo. Recommended". ~SING OUT MAGAZINE
"THIS ALBUM IS JUST A GEM" ~Bob Harris on BBC Radio 2
"This is imaginative, quality Americana that deserves to do well on the radio charts, both Americana and mainstream country" ~
"The Milroys are an inspiring duo ...They always make us feel like we have work to do. We gladly steal their ideas when we can!" ~
STACEY EARLE & MARK STUART
"At a time when "Americana" has become a nebulous, catch-all label, the Milroys clarify things for puzzled music fans. This is Americana as it was meant to be played and heard." ~ DETROIT FREE PRESS
"The Milroys have become one of my major guilty pleasures"
~Twila Oxley-Price, Ann Arbor's CURRENT MAGAZINE
"THIS WILL MAKE OUR "BEST OF 2006"
~Norm Mast...Host of "The Back Porch"
~ WVPE 88.1 FM Indiana
"Whatever "it" is The Milroys have got it big time. Every track on this album is imbued with the spirit of classic country. The songs are steeped in tradition but strangely modern at the same time. I love em!"
RALPH McLEAN, "McLEAN'S COUNTRY" on BBC RADIO ULSTER & BBC RADIO FOYLE
"C.J. Milroy has a touch of Nanci Griffith’s innocence about her" ~ AMERICANA UK
The Milroys are another in the long line of country duets ...George & Tammy, Gram & Emmylou... but that would not tell the full story at all. ~WWW.NETRHYTHMS.CO.UK
"The epitome of pure Americana in the classic storytelling tradition." ~ WWW.AMERICANAHOMEPLACE.COM
"If I had a porch, rather than a back yard in the North of England, this would be my soundtrack of choice to nod along to in my rocking chair."
