“[The More You Say, The Less I Know] is Americana at its best! It's got all the elements: The tasty B3 nuggets, the heavy quarter notes on bass, the lap steal, and acoustic guitar. With this new single, Maxwell James mixes Country and Americana as a process of discovery and a way to say the unsayable: it's not me, it's you.”


“[Maxwell James EP] inhabits a space pioneered by revivalists such as Jack White and Alabama Shakes, and James stands his ground given the giant shoes he fills.”
