Tony Lawson, director of WDVX, Knoxville, TN
"Maybe it takes awhile to understand what you're hearing when you see the everybodyfields live because your eyes and your ears are telling two different stories. They are just too young to be making music this timeless. Jill Andrews and Sam Quinn swap bass, guitar, and vocals with easy harmony. You want to say that he's the leader, then her, but they are two inseparable elements in this group. The songs are formed by a pair of remarkable voices, hers notable for its casual maturity, his for a reediness that seems to follow the hills and curves in a road that he is traveling in his mind. The vocals are complimented by the sweet and sure sound of David Richey's dobro playing."

"the everybodyfields' sound fits like a treasured old winter coat, with flashes of color hidden in its silky lining."
Flagpole, Athens, GA
"This trio from Johnson City, Tennessee leaves many a believer and Gillian Welch comparison in its wake. the everybodyfields debut album, "half-way there: electricity and the South" is what some in the business might call a quiet, sneaky little record, equally suitable for a Mountain Stage appearance or a slow wake up on a Sunday."
The Independent Weekly, Durham, NC
"Their hearts and harmonies are pure."

Marquee Magazine, Jonesborough, TN
"After less than two years together, this acoustic trio has evolved from playing small venues in their hometown of Johnson City, Tennessee to debuting on National Public Radio's "Mountain Stage." Their music combines American roots tradition with folk, alternative and classic country to produce songs that speak to both modern and traditional listeners.
The Savannah Underground, Savannah, GA
"The Johnson City trio of Jill Andrews, Sam Quinn, and David Richey make music that is channeled through decades of melancholy Folk and Country. It doesn't seem right that people in their early twenties can express such soulful sadness, but there is catharsis and beauty here too. It's good to know that Appalachia still inspires songwriters to put stories into song, especially when they are this well crafted and lovely."
The Metro Pulse, Knoxville, TN
"The Johnson City, Tennessee band has tapped into a vein of pure Appalachian melancholy that manages to make heart-wrenching sadness beautiful."
