"Cocksure in their handling of traditional blues, Mother Merey and the Black Dirt have created an album that is both fresh and timeless. Never forced, the authenticity of Down to the River should not be questioned." - Bucket Full Of Nails
"Mother Merey and the Black Dirt do everything right on their new album Down To The River. They are a boot stomper on the porch kind of band and that fact is clear from the first notes... "Mother Merey and the Black Dirt have their songwriting chops as honed in as they have their playing."
-Charles Hale, Ninebullets
"I was but a wee lad back when Canned Heat came on the scene and freaked me out with their jug blues/boogie and I continue to go back to the orignal line up with Alan "Blind Owl" Christie Wilson, Bob "The Bear" Hite, Henry "Sunflower" Vestine releases for my fix of gritty rootsy, bluesy folk. Austin's Mother Merey and the Black Dirt just changed that, they've got the missing ingredient, vocalist Merey Kimbrough's uncomparable singing over a slide resonator guitar and a boot stomping beat is addictive listening."
