"Stewart Oskenhorn"

" The music is instantly fresh, a jazz-tinged, song-oriented, slightly jamming take on new grass". "The songwriting is sophisticated with twist that take the music several steps from the expected". - Aspen Times

"Maurice Teilmann"

" Free Peoples are porch rock pros with down home rustic charm and sure footed modesty. Dont miss this fine acoustic act". - Synthesis Music

"David Gans"

"Free Peoples kicks a certain kind of high energy retro butt. Great grooves, fine songs, and damn fine lead playing by Johnny Downer. Huge energy, great style". - KPFA

"Forestville Gazette"

" Yes you can dance to them, but you want to stop and listen because of the complexity of the rhythms and the quality musicianship". - Vesta Copestakes

"Herbie Herbert"

Herbie Herbert former manager of Journey and Steve Miller band “Free Peoples rocks! I was impressed by how good this band was. I loved the up-tempo “ new grass” songs beautifully performed and executed! I can see why they are becoming one of the hottest new bands in the San Francisco area.”
- Former managment of Journey

"Jefferson Public Radio"

“Free Peoples have quietly become one of the best American roots bands. Fine harmonies, blues and jazz edges and rock elements all combine into a cohesive joyful sound. Their new CD, Sittin’ on a Goldmine, is another tight, focused work with impeccable musicianship and excellent songs. While some folks soar on the Dead, Phish or String Cheese Incident, I soar on Free Peoples. They’re as good as it gets.”
- Eric Alan Music Director
