""Acorn Project in Santa Cruz""

"Classic jam bands are a dime a dozen; indie rock jam bands are slightly more expensive. Bellingham, Washington's Acorn Project gives
listeners their money’s worth with funky epics that rock enough to make a good Christmas present for your Deadhead uncle but are
jazzy enough to play for your hipster friends... Constantly changing and seldom boring, this is a show not to be missed." - Santa Cruz Metro - Santa Cruz, CA

""Acorn Project - We'll Be Fine""

"I love an album that's simply perfect for the times.. Tasty. This entire album is a shout-out. The players are all superb, the solos touch the
heart. Fine job all around. While there's no doubt these guys are rock and roll, there is plenty of jazz, soul, and pop influence to keep Acorn
Project constantly on the edge of creativity... Easily one of the five best all-round albums I've heard all year." - - Austin, TX

""We'll Be Fine""

"Acorn Project's swirling mixture of rock, blues, and funk serves as a cohesive format for the instrumentation of choice. Apart from the multifariously talented drummer and exceedingly impressive saxophonist Sam Lax, each member specializes in an instrument in which they have clearly studied up on... The group has made the evolution from primarily a "live band" to studio whizzes with heaps of good
songwriting ideas up their sleeves... There is guaranteed to be something for everyone's current psyche on the intricately resounding We’ll Be Fine." - - Berkeley Heights, NJ

""Acorn Project Album Reveiw - We'll Be Fine""

"To their credit Acorn Project are difficult to pigeon hole and cannot be easily added to any current glut of similar bands... The sax is not
common to prog rock which gives Acorn Project an angle, offering a hint of Morphine, which evens things out nicely." - - Liverpool, United Kingdom

""We'll Be Fine Album Review""

"Though it presents an impressively grand departure from 2005's Odd His Sleepy Soar, Acorn Project's latest offering, the nine-song We'll Be Fine, still captures the trademark smoothness and funk that has made them a Bellingham favorite... We'll Be Fine demonstrates a perfect balance of whimsey and work ethic and it's precisely the ability to keep things so effortlessly composed that ensures Acorn Project a lot to look forward to." - What's Up Magazine - Bellingham, WA

""Bellingham's Humble Hitmakers""

“Within minutes, fans and people in the crowd hearing Acorn Project for the first time are rocking out to funky keyboard riffs, wild saxophone bellows and the lead singer’s soothing yet powerful voice. But the members of Acorn Project never dreamed they would be playing, much less headlining, The Showbox, where countless famous bands, such as Pearl Jam and Reel Big Fish, have played.” - Klipsun Magazine

""Vince Herman Melts with Flowmotion""

“The next afternoon, a number of up and coming bands to the Northwest scene performed including fun Acorn Project, from Bellingham, WA… Each band was embraced by newcomers and long time friends enjoying themselves out at the festival and each band has a uniqe sound that will help as they continue to grow.” -

""Summer Meltdown 2007 Festival Review""

“Saturday was kind of a slow-it-down and relax day (but), The Acorn Project stood out in the afternoon, then the Yard Dog Road Show was filled with performance artists… and entertaining for the eyes.” -

""Acorn Project NYE 2007 - Show Preview""

“If you are one of the few people in Bellingham who have not heard of Acorn Project, let me tell you, you’re the only one. This band regularly draws hundreds of people to their local shows and are sure to send their whirling, twirling fans into a frenzy…” - Cascadia Weekly
