""Paradise Texas" review, San Antonio Express News"

Allan and Mackenzie have crafted a 10-cut CD that showcases their instrumental prowess, engaging vocals and Allan's lyrics. The CD also puts the group's range on display. Part country, part folk, part Tex-Mex and all Texas, the songs run the gamut from rowdy road tales ("Goin' to Mexico") to love songs with a beat ("Put Your Faith in Love") to the funny side of love ("Tastes Like Chicken"). It's a mixture that works...The disc sounds great. - Jim Beal


""Paradise Texas" review, 3rd Coast Music Magazine"

This is very much a Texas album, but Allan doesn't beat you over the head with his Texas pride. There's an engagingly comfortable feel to the playing, the vocals, the harmonies and the songwriting, as if they worked the album up on the back porch, cut it in a studio and managed to get the best of both worlds. - John Conquest


""Paradise Texas" review, Roots Music Report"

10 of the coolest songs to come to roots country fans in quite a while. Glenn Allan and Kim Mackenzie harmonize like peas and carrots. Flaco Jimenez adds the south Texas flavor to this album with his accordion work. This is no run of the mill release. Country fans will love this album. This CD should be on country radio everywhere!

""Paradise Texas" review, Rikk's Reviews"

Glenn Allan and Kim Mackenzie take you on a very worthwhile journey that proves to be entertaining as well as artistically sound. A complete mixture of style and charismatic energy that flows from the beginning of the upbeat "Goin' To Mexico" and doesn't let up until the last note of "Death Of Me." The chemistry between the two performers is evident. The listener has fun, and you can tell the duo had just as much fun recording the CD while remaining focused on the goal. There is not a bad track in the bunch.

Bio

Hotter than a jalapeno, cooler than the other side of the pillow, this multi-talented, multi-instrumentalist, singer-songwriter duo harmonizes like few artists can.

Their diverse backgrounds and love of similar musical styles bring elements of Americana, folk, country, blues, honky-tonk and Tex-Mex sounds into concert, with a decidedly Texas flavor.

Guitar, fiddle, mandolin, accordion and upright bass all come together with those magical harmonies to create a melodic blend that is much more than the sum of it's parts.

Superb musicianship, intelligent songwriting and absolute professionalism complete the package, to produce a strong show every night.
