Reviews:

  • Sepiachord.com | “Eli August has a voice like no other, and I do mean that in a good way… He is able to cause his guitar to reveal its soul, and his blend of accompanying instruments could not be more perfect. Eli’s music is rich, yet uncluttered. It harkens back to a simpler time, and speaks directly to the heart.”
  • Steampunk Chronicle | “If you want an album that is solidly produced, with tracks that progress incredibly well from one to the next, and would make for perfect parlor room entertainment, I recommend this album highly.”
  • Local Sounds Magazine | “The songs are forlorn, delicately adorned with strings, ukulele and, primarily, acoustic guitar. There is regret, remorse, longing and more than a hint of despair. Eli August is serious, minor-key listening then, the polar opposite of pop music. It won’t make you dance but it will make you feel. The whole album plays as a continuous narrative and the creative effort that went into it is impressive.”
