“…the new offering by The Fade Kings is a welcome addition to my growing library of local music…..Years to Recover has a clean, meaty Rhythm and Blues sound that doesn’t miss a note from beginning to end….. There’s a good mix for everybody, from smooth, clean ballads to percussion-driven R&B and straight blues…. it makes you want to pop it in your car CD player and just drive!”
