"...the duo unquestionably have a distinctive sound of their own that comes through clearly in every song."
"Quiet, sweetly harmonized and unassuming but mesmerizing back-porch music."
"It's unusual for a record to capture the sound of an expanse, yet keep the songs so small and close, that's exactly what Clay and Jodi have done with the ten songs here."
"the duo have followed the original paths of Southern music..."
"...Folk music for dusty desert landscapes..."
"It’s an example of two capable solo acts combining forces to discover new ways to celebrate regional roots sounds while creating something markedly modern."
"The Lonesomest Sound That Can Sound is also my favorite album of the year."
"Everyone needs to stop what they’re doing right now and listen to Clay Parker and Jodi James."
"...they have blithely managed to create an album that’s both hushed and musically complex."
"Filled with longing, Louisiana references...Parker and James incorporate the country blues in much of their lyricism."
