The best kept secret in music

Press


"Maybe it takes a while to understand what you're hearing when you see the everybodyfields live because your eyes and your ears are telling two different stories. They are just too young to be making music this timeless. Jill Andrews and Sam Quinn swap bass, guitar, and vocals with easy harmony. You want to say that he's the leader, then her, but they are two inseparable elements in this group. The songs are formed by a pair of remarkable voices, hers notable for its casual maturity, his for a reediness that seems to follow hills and curves in a road that he is traveling in his mind. The vocals are complimented by the sweet and sure sound of David Richey's dobro playing."


- The Wire, Portsmouth, NH


"the everybodyfields' sound fits like a treasured old winter coat, with flashes of color hidden in its silky lining."
- Flagpole, Athens, GA


"This trio from Johnson City, Tennessee leaves many a believer and Gillian Welch comparison in its wake. the everybodyfields debut album "half-way there: electricity and the South" is what some in the business might call a quiet, sneaky little record, equally suitable for a "Mountain Stage" appearance or a slow wake up on a Sunday."


- The Independent Weekly, Durham, NC


"Their hearts(and harmonies)are pure. A filmy woman's voice, a dobro, and some mountain air make this Tennessee group a trio to watch."


- WBUR, Boston, MA


"The Johnson City trio of Jill Andrews, Sam Quinn, and David Richey make music that is channeled through decades of melancholy Folk and Country. It doesn't seem right that people in their early twenties can express such soulful sadness, but there is catharsis and beauty here too. It's good to know that Appalachia still inspires songwriters to put stories into song, especially when they are this well crafty and lovely."


- The Metro Pulse, Knoxville, TN


"My shirt is sticking to my sides in the humidity of Thursday night, but the cool air conditioning and cooler-still three-part harmonizing of Johnson City, Tennessee's the everybodyfields are providing more than enough respite at the Flicker Theatre & Bar. Achingly beautiful are the grassy vocals of bassist Jill Andrews and the sweetly high-toned, old-timey and equally bluegrassy vocals of her compatriots. Acoustic rhythm guitarists Sam Quinn and David Richey (who also plays a mighty fine dobro) paint mental pictures of classic open-top roadsters cruising down dusty country roads as tumble weeds spin out of control into the distance and storm clouds gather in the rear-view mirror. The trio specializes in capturing some of the old bluegrass/ country feel of a place whose name reflects their sound like a knocked-about but gilt-edged Depression-era mirror. After soaking up an hour and a half of bluegrassy Appalachian bliss, I implore you: y'all've got to experience the everybodyfields - they'll have a new album called "Plague Of Dreams" out in July."
- Flagpole, Athens


"Best Local Musicians in the Mountain South of 2004-2005"

- Marquee Magazine, Jonesborough, TN


“After less than two years together, this acoustic trio has evolved from playing small venues in their hometown of Johnson City, Tennessee to debuting on National Public Radio’s “Mountain Stage.” Their music combines American roots tradition with folk, alternative and classic country to produce songs that speak to both modern and traditional listeners.

- The Savannah Underground, Savannah, GA


“The Johnson City, Tennessee band has tapped into a vein of pure Appalachian melancholy that manages to make heart-wrenching sadness beautiful.”
- Sun Bulletin, Binghampton, NY
