Press & Reviews...
"...a stark look at the nature of human frailty and failure, and the effects it leaves on his protagonists and their loved ones. It is, at times, a brutal assessment, but Currey prefers to go for honesty over happy endings and easy morality plays."
"...a truly monumental effort. Currey is a consummate storyteller who knows how to pull all the right strings in all the right ways.
"What he lacks in youthful exuberance, he makes up with the wisdom that comes with age. It took Mark half a lifetime to put the songs together that make up his 2017 album ‘Tarrant County’, but I think you will agree that it wasn’t a moment too soon."
"...combines masterful songwriting and refreshingly accomplished musicianship with a voice that’s as comforting as your best childhood memory. ...an essay in Americana."
Wide Open Country’s 25 Best Albums of 2018 So Far - "Whether it’s an interrogation of traditional forms of masculinity or confronting his own struggles with addiction and redemption, Currey’s heartfelt songs will make you stop, listen, and, importantly, feel."
"...with whiffs of Steve Forbert and an occasional dip of the toe into the blues ("Mid-Life Crises") or into Texas swing, as on the standout "Genevieve,"..."
"...a highly personal collection of well-crafted country, a reflective meditation on belonging, the South, relationships and coming to terms with one's own identity."
