Praise for Orion Walsh:
“Walsh crafted his best album yet, injecting a pop sensibility into his sharply crafted, folk-rooted songs” – Lincoln Journal Star
“There’s a restlessness to his music and a power in his voice, a constant need to keep moving and changing the scenery, which leads to Walsh’s status as a musical Zelig, keeping his audiences guessing.” –The Inlander
“A truly independent musician who doesn’t have to rely on the handouts of a donor to produce the music he wants to create. If you’re looking for a clean break from all the crappy generic music out there, please take a minute out of your day and give Orion Walsh a listen, you won’t regret it.” -Indie Vision Music
“There must be something in the water in Nebraska that it keeps producing powerful folk singers. I think it is time that a new artist’s name becomes synonymous with the state…Orion Walsh” –Popwreckoning
“When the deep, heartfelt, expressive lyrics are combined with the perfectly suited instrumentation, the end result is a masterwork of new American folk music. The depth and expression that exude from all of “Tornado Lullabies” have quickly made the album one of my favorite recordings” -The Daily Nebraskan
