"Tight Harmonies and Great Playing"

“Poor Man's Poison are a group of musical friends from California. They play acoustic music on traditional bluegrass instruments but this is far from traditional sounding. You get all kinds of influences from folk to reggae in their style. Think of perhaps Jack Johnson having grown up in Appalachia instead of Hawaii. I mean this in a really good way. There is a sweet, laid-back vibe to this record. Tight harmonies and great playing infuse the songs with such a good feeling”
— Chris Schmid, The Discriminating Music Aficionado - The Discriminating Music Aficionado

"Good Honest Music"

“ One of the coolest things is the addition of the mandolin, which is constantly picking up a storm, or strumming up a...uh...hurricane... or something like that. Anyway, the point is that this is very good, honest music, and it deserves any recognition it receives, even if that recognition is simply the fact that I'll be playing it again, right now, on the first rainy day of the year.”

From the heartland of California, these five life-long friends and band mates bring their combined passion for music to the stage and studio. With their powerful combination of toe tapping acoustics and smooth, spellbinding harmonies, they artfully weave their view of life’s experiences into witty and meaningful lyrical journeys.
