‘... whereas pale imitators might hint at the sick, sad, demented world that they’re writing about, Texas Tea give that world all the vivid quality of Harry Dean Stanton in Paris, Texas, or a sociopath loitering in the background of a David Lynch film.’
‘Jacobson and Dougherty’s voices entwine like late- night cigarette smoke, somewhere out on the ledge with fellow travellers such as Leonard Cohen and Tom Waits.’
THE COURIER MAIL
‘Brisbane’s King and Queen of country’
‘Legends in the making’

‘Stupidly brilliant (really!)’
TIME OFF MAGAZINE
'Kate’s voice could suspend a scalpel in mid-air. Chairs collapse, birds explode, etcetera. Ben’s guitar and slide is the bed on which the cowboys collapse after Kate’s king-hits.'
