Misner & Smith Press Quotes
"I was struck from the first notes of the quality of their musical interaction...the harmonies are reminiscent of “the high, lonesome sound”...lots of folks sing good together but this is truly inspired vocalizing...a unique blend...this is “shivers up the spine” singing!! " Douglas Strobel - rarwriter.com
"Charming lyrics...are reminiscent of the young Paul Simon. And there's something unmistakably Dylanesque in the talking blues of the title track.(Poor Player)" Paul Liberatore - Here Magazine, Marin Independent Journal
"*Misner & Smith* make a strong case for folk Americana without baggage and for music with intricate simplicity and lyrical dignity. This duo is a Bay Area treasure that needs to be shared." Jose Segue - Hicks with Sticks
"Misner...is one of the most promising songwriters I've heard in quite some time." Paul Liberatore - Here Magazine, Marin Independent Journal
"Driven by the tasty blend of voices, the music rides along atop bluegrass, folk and Americana sound waves. ‘Halfway Home’ is a powerful testament to tradition, story telling and doing what you love." Danny McCloskey - The Alternate Root
"“Poor Player” is about a neophyte performer nervously waiting in the wings. After recently headlining at Freight & Salvage, the prestigious acoustic showcase in Berkeley, these two have moved up in class from that lowly status. Their next album could very well be called “Star Power.”" Paul Liberatore - Here Magazine, Marin Independent Journal
"They have an easy self assurance, professional to their finger tips, displaying an awesome command of Americana music." -Neil Dalton, Willington, U.K.
The Real Music Club

-Jim Douglas, Seattle, WA
". . . .their effortless, heart-tugging harmonies make me eager for more. The sweetness of tunes like Henry & Lil is balanced by good old fashioned fun on traditional songs like Blue Ridge Mountain Blues. Misner and Smith deliver lyrics that sneak up on you, surprise you with their honesty, and beg an immediate second listen."
-Meg Devine, Rochester, NY
"I've listened to your CD more times a day than I probably should and every time I do, I hear something new that I like. It's replaced my Van Morrisons' Tupelo Honey which I can also listen to over and over again. Your work is both beautiful and meaningful. I love it!"
-Christina, Cotati, CA
