"What I like about HeavyDrunk is it takes some chances. It’s bold. But it also knows how far to push the envelope, when to pull back, what makes good writing, and what makes good storytelling and interesting music. It knows the art of tongue-in-cheek humor and it knows how to get to you musically without coming on too strong. Think Randy Newman, Leon Russell, or Tom Waits. And, just so you know, the group’s unusual name comes from a quote attributed to the late blues guitarist, Clarence 'Gatemouth' Brown."
