"Put Ansel Adams, John Prine, and Ernest Hemingway into a stolen steam locomotive heading to Walden Pond by way of Texas Low Country and Fell's Point while scratching songs into wooden walls with bent nails and bark and you'd have John Seay's tunes. John has won numerous awards for his tunes and approximately one verse into his first tune you'll know why. His playing and singing are deceptively simple, but deep deep deep and heartrendingly brokenly beautifully written and sung. And that's all I have to say about that." -- David Morreale (S.N.A.F.U.)
