“Like the best classic albums, its pleasures run deep.” - Pop Matters

“Like a cocaine-fuelled jam between David Bowie, John Lennon and Leon Russell, the Louisiana-bred, Portland-based rocker would’ve played Max’s Kansas City” [8/10] - Uncut

What “The People” are saying about Kyle Craft & Showboat Honey:

“Kyle Craft and his backing band Showboat Honey provide a glam-tastic Bowie-esque joyride, full of meaty Stones riffs and sprinkled with caustic soda lyrics that a true Dylan devotee has processed and posted from the heart.” [4/5]- NARC

“The result is a cohesive set of tracks centered around a rough patch that hit at the same time as Craft was falling in love…Fans of his glam rock-influenced sound will find plenty to latch onto.” - Billboard

“Having been the darling of the moment when his solo debut was first released, Craft clearly shows that he has more to offer than just being that guy with wild hair that sounds like someone else. He has a range and depth that is showcased beautifully on this new album, his third on Sub Pop, and first as Kyle Craft & Showboat Honey. “ - Eleven PDX

“On the track, his typically wailing voice is stunted by almost spoken-word verses that ride along with a slow-rolling piano progression. It’s a suspense-building element that pays off when the song eventually crashes into a wave of horns, electric guitars and sheer swagger.” [“Broken Mirror Pose”/ Heavy Rotation] - World Cafe

“A glammy, ’70s style anthem with a soaring chorus.”  [“Broken Mirror Pose”] - Brooklyn Vegan

“Craft, whose lyrics and electric guitar hooks have drawn comparisons to Bob Dylan and The Rolling Stones, is no stranger to vintage sounds.” [“Broken Mirror Pose”] - PASTE

“Craft has brought his signature twang into a more Raconteurs-esque world with his latest release.” [2 Ugly 4 NY] - Alt Citizen
