“TARA DENTE/Truth in the Mud:  This crew came from Asbury Park to record in Virginia and they sound much more like roots rockers than Springsteen.  With a heartland attitude and outlook, Dente and her gang come in with some meaty, juicy Americana that hits you between the eyes with it’s authenticity and power.  With no affectation, she goes right for the heart and the jugular, hitting her targets with ease.  Solid folk flavored stuff throughout.” – Chris Spector / Midwest Record
