"Two voices, acoustic guitar, and a little bit of magic...." Bob Harris, Bob Harris Sunday, BBC Radio 2 (17th Aug 2014)
‘Their combination of vocals and sublime instrumentals harks back to a simpler time of music. You could be listening to this on an Alabama porch or in a picturesque English village – the Hallelujah Trails have created a sound which is unbelievably rich and welcoming and one that you want to always have in your life. Their version of Jackson is one which my listeners love’
Russell Hill - Express FM, & Maverick Magazine.
"Shadowy harmonies, acoustic and electric guitars, and driving percussion score on such well-constructed pieces as Granite and Imelda. They are equally effective on slower material like the delicate Nothing Any Good, which is sweetly harmonised atop softly played acoustic guitars".
Alan Cackett, Maverick Magazine Oct 2013
"Delicate and precise fingerpicking guitar, sweet harmonies and a cover of Johnny & June’s classic ‘Jackson - what is there not to like? The harmonies are particularly stirring on Granite, a gently insistent ballad, prettily augmented with high lonesome voices and jauntily picked strings."
Peter Tomkins, R2 Rock ‘n Reel Magazine Oct 2013
"Guitar/vocalist Jeremy Mendonca, originally from San Francisco, has been playing his unique brand of Alternative Bluegrass in the UK for over 10 years, fronting numerous bands, but has certainly found his musical soulmate in vocalist/bassist Anna Robinson" http://uk.music-jobs.com/blog/index.php/new-music/the-hallelujah-trails/

"The Hallelujah Trails produce some nifty guitar work and lovely harmonies on their debut album. There are shades of the Everley Brothers and at one point, The Beatles. This is a really interesting album to listen to."
