“Down Home Girl is not traditional bluegrass, but falls under the bluegrass genre because of Andy’s mandolin playing, and my voice and songwriting.I also grew up singing bluegrass with my family. My father was taught Banjo by Little Roy Lewis.” The Bluegrass Blog Dec 2010
“One of the things Kathryn proves with Down Home Girl is in this day and age you don’t need a big name producer to put out a solidly recorded, engineered and produced effort. Between Kathryn herself and James McLaughlin, who also plays drums, this a clean, bright recording with nothing to hide or muddle the excellent musicianship. Foremost of which is the guitar and mandolin playing of Andy Thacker, but the entire band holds it’s own on every single song.” Twangville Nov 2010
“With a voice that rivals such acts as Alison Krauss and Dolly Parton, Caine delivers an awesome performance throughout her new album” Swift reviews Nov 2010
“Kathryn Caine dazzles on Down Home Girl. Based in Country but dabbling with Folk and Rock N Roll, Caine's dynamic Country debut is among the elite debuts in 2010. Her voice has a classic country sound, and Caine always sounds like she's giving her heart on every song and enjoying it completely.”Wildy’s World 2010
“In a world that thrives on the American dream of freedom and liberty, the musical genre of Americana encompasses that very concept. One such artist today who understands its sound is none other than Americana/Bluegrass artist Kathryn Caine. Her soulful sound is one that pleases ears and hearts everywhere” Elton R Jones Sonic Eclectic
“Finally her track, Honey Hill does a fantastic job blending pop with bluegrass. Its a full drum kit, bass, electric guitars outfit; but all the while still has a bluegrass quality.” Awaken publications
