'Stocksdale is an artist whose vision has been expertly realized. His organic, high-touch recordings, reeking with the warm textures and tones of wood and steel, will impress fans of honest, direct, folk-inspired music. Stocksdale can be delicate and introspective ("Tension"), lively and optimistic ("Black Cloud"), and downright playful ("Everyone is Ugly in the End"). His vocals exude a breathy sensitivity that fits his material like a glove. Breezy, easygoing and amiable, Stocksdale is also a captivating live performer.' -Music Connection Magazine.
