| "Working with David was a true pleasure. He has a finely-tuned sense of what he is going for in his music, limitless energy to pursue that goal, and great singing and playing chops besides. Look out, World!"
Two-time SPBGMA Traditional Male
Vocalist of the Year
| "Just finished listening to That Old Familiar from David Thom. There is an air of familiarity here. Along with his producer (the venerable Laurie Lewis) and fellow musicians, Thom has managed to make a 'true' Bluegrass album here (no small feat these days!) that serves as a showcase for his many varied talents. He sings well, plays with confidence and writes with sincerity and does all of these things with equal fervor. If I am any judge, this project will serve notice of many more wonderful musical adventures in the future. David and company, thanks for the ride!"

| "The David Thom Band plays hard-driving bluegrass, steeped in the
tradition while tempered by contemporary sensibilities. (Which means
they can get away with 'most anything they choose, while they maintain
the soulful essence of the music.) The band's delight in playing
and singing their brand of bluegrass is infectious, and their performances
are always Big Fun."
