“In my opinion Whitney & Loomis are most comparable to Civil Wars. What’s more they are modern examples of classic alternative folk popular in the 70’s, 80’s and 90’s. I can hear acts like Chris and Thomas, Blind Pilot and Citizen Cope. Above all there is an underlying yearning love passion theme going on here. The musicianship is shall I say, off the chain. The vocal front from both Whitney and Loomis are gravitating. White really draws you in and I’m convinced both know what he’s doing behind a microphone. Another highlight for me is “My Beloved” which exemplifies their sound to a T. It’s got plenty of cool melodies and interesting lyrical content – but above all it shows just how they both masterfully navigate through this simplistic yet amazing writing style – while feeling very comfortable in their own skin. It makes for a great first impression.” – Ryan Cooley, Vents Magazine. Read the entire review at www.ventsmagazine.com.

Former Billboard Magazine Sr. Editor, Chuck Taylor recently reviewed Jiggley’s latest single, “Walk On Me:”
“Award-winning Nashville-based singer & songwriter Jiggley Jones offers Americana, Alt Country and acoustic wares that reflect on life, hope, and human nature from the perspective of a man that has been there and lived that. With Top 5 rankings on the Roots Music Report chart; radio success in Europe, Asia and Australia; video views that have fostered more than a quarter of a million views; and live performances across the East Coast, it’s only a matter of time before the Lamon Records Nashville artist gains the critical mass he deserves. Full-length release “A Mountain, A Struggle, A Tunnel, A Light” features showcase single “Walk On Me,” a gently percolating melodic tour de force that showcases the tender side of his persona alongside a bold vocal performance that is both heartbreaking and reassuring. With beautiful instrumentation that almost conjures weeping, Jiggley sings: “You walk all over me, It’s nothing new/But I love you, What can I do, what can I do…” It’s a universal message that so many of us have struggled through, delivered here with a true voice of experience. Hitworthy and potent, this is a “Walk” worth hearing.” – Chuck Taylor, Former Billboard Magazine Sr. Editor
“Enter Beth Whitney/Bradford Loomis, a band based out of Marysville, WASH. Their latest 7 track release entitled “The Banner Days” just got released.

Expect 7 “Gold Standard” clips of spot-on alternative folk-rock with straight forward yet intricate arrangements that are unique within their own right.” – Ryan Maggert, Rock N Roll View
