“For most bands, it usually takes a few years and a few records to land a home at even a decent indy label. For Jale, it took all of three months.” – Heckler magazine
“Jale proves that they can make a steel guitar sound capable of felling the sturdiest pine. Better still, they’ve studied hard the art of swearing sweetly.” – Mark Beaumount, NME
