Praise for ‘Trouble with the Grey’

“To quote Bill Monroe, ‘This is powerful music!’ With Too Blue, the total is much more than the sum of the parts, and the parts are mighty fine: swing-grass, 12 tracks with 9 original tunes, hot pickin’ & sweet singin’.” -Barry Mitterhoff, Mandolinist, Jorma Kaukonen

“A solid overall effort – catchy melodies, close harmonies and some first-rate picking… Each song is skillfully rendered, expertly produced and, individually, easy on the ears.” -David Morris,

“Their eclectic, well-arranged music is really anything but “too blue” because they convey many moods, and abundant amounts of soul and emotion…I’d highly recommend you get on-board their train to check out their tasty swing-grass music.” -Joe Ross, California Bluegrass Assoc.

“Smooth harmonies, adventurous musicianship, and eclectic material… Ah, music for grown-ups.” -Eric Gibson, The Gibson Brothers (IBMA 2011 award winners)

“Too Blue is a fantastic band with great singing, great picking and large dollops of creativity. The album features beautifully clean production values and the sound is always fresh. I was impressed. I think you will be too.” -Tony Trischka, Grammy nominated banjo legend

“Too Blue does it all – bluegrass, swing, originals, country covers, and more, and they do it with instrumental virtuosity, excellent singing, and great good humor. Too Blue is Too Good!” -Chris Teskey, Senior Music Producer, WAMU-FM
