#1 Roots Album - iTunes Canada

"...cosmic country-rock sounds of Gram Parsons-era Byrds and the Flying Burrito Brothers down to a science. Sweet little bits of heartache underneath pedal steel and raucous barroom sing-alongs¡­ what's not to love?" - iTunes Canada

"Laidback ballads and thighslapping outlaw drinking songs make up most of the 12 tracks on the Ottawa altcountry five piece's debut, but the occasional curveball is thrown in too, such as Though Yourself Lucky's hint of 60s garage rock. Proof that there's still originality in a genre too often mired in Neil Young and Gram Parsons facsimiles." [/i]
Q Magazine ****

"There are some truly beautiful moments on this glorious record...the record is a fine set of country tinged soul'n'roll with a smattering of dirty blues to mix
things up."
- Allgigs, UK

Although four band members contribute to the songwriting that is rich in storytelling tradition, it is the band's unmistakable musicianship that suggests The John Henrys are not as traditional as the legendary character of their namesake. Produced by the band, the album features songs like 'Lost in the Canyon' and the title track are sweetly laid back alt-country, while the angry 'New Years' and tongue-in-cheek 'No More Rock n Roll' and 'Ain't Gonna Drink No More' keep the album interesting with variety and humour.Released on the bands own 9LB Records imprint, marketed and distributed by True North Records, 'SWEET AS THE GRAIN' hit #1 on iTunes Canada Roots Music Albums the week of release, and the Top 20 on XM Satellite Radio's Americana Channel X Country as well as coverage in Altsounds, Old Kentucky Blog, Stereo Subversion, Insound and Top 30 slot on the Roots Music Report.
