Mark Erelli is really a roots rocker in a folk musician's guise (and what is the difference anyway?). He's been described as tasteful, intelligent, sensitive, and unpredictible. He mixes old style country, balladry, and folk-rock for a throughoughly modern combination.
"Jeffrey Foucault is Lyle Lovett with more dirt on his boots." - Peter Mulvey
"What I found compelling in Townes Van Zandt's writing is the essentially American element of the blues that runs through everything he wrote. No matter what he was playing, Townes sang the blues and he did it with such a hurtful purity. It was honest and haunting. Hearing Townes when I was eighteen had the power of revelation." - Jeff Foucault
