HERE’S WHAT PEOPLE HAVE BEEN SAYING ABOUT “OH/KY”

  • "Kentuckian Jeremy Pinnell hits all the country-tune sweet spots. His voice is strong and a little mournful -- you can feel his ache seep through the speakers as you listen -- and the rhythm section shuffles along gently. Weepy pedal steel licks feel just right as Pinnell sings a regretful refrain of ‘I did it again,’ a familiar sentiment for any of us who've ever done a little backsliding.” - THE BLUEGRASS SITUATION
  • “Sorrow and loss are deeply woven in to the country music fabric, but they’re especially critical elements to the new LP by Jeremy Pinnell, OH/KY. With a gruff voice and a strong grasp on what real country sounds like, Pinnell spins a series of compelling yarns on the album that document the hardships of the past 18 years of his life, from drug addiction to failed relationships. These tunes are a tutorial on classic country music.” – POPMATTERS
  • "Mind-blowingly good. It’s my summer album so far, and pretty much the definition of 'hard country.'" - Greg Vandy / AMERICAN STANDARD TIME / KEXP's THE ROADHOUSE
  • "A fantastic record" - GHETTOBLASTER MAGAZINE
  • “If you're a fan of classic county - and particularly honky-tonk music - this is an album that belongs in your collection” – AXS
  • “OH/KY shines because Jeremy sings about the times he won't talk about. The songs are brutally honest. It feels like both a warning and an apology. This album will give you chills, but only if you have a soul." - GLACIALLY MUSICAL
  • “Pinnell knows how infectious country should sound, with plenty of pedal steel guitar and soul… painfully honest.” - SOUNDZ MAGAZINE
  • “A tribute to pure, authentic country… Pinnell captivates the listener until the end.” - KEYS & CHORDS
  • “Jeremy Pinnell’s new song 'Big Bright World' is about as authentic as country gets: western swing rhythms, weeping pedal still, deep-voiced sadness, and a narrator with a former drug problem. Still, the sun shines through, just like the title suggests.” - INDEPENDENT CLAUSES
  • “One of my favorite new finds.” – Sean Moeller / DAYTROTTER
  • [8 / 10 stars] “This is about as pure a distillation of old-timey country that you may get to hear this year. So close up them honky tonks: there’s a new kid on the block. His name is Jeremy Pinnell and his take on a solid tradition is electrifying, even if the guitars are strummed acoustically, and the beats shuffle. OH/KY is a bold record, and thoroughly enjoyable.” – INVISIBLE INK
  • [4.5 / 5 stars] "A first-rate Americana songwriter with bands like The Light Wires, The Great Depression and The Brothers and The Sisters Jeremy Pinnell steps into the spotlight on his remarkable solo debut OH/KY. With Cincinnati honky-tonk band The 55’s backing him, Pinnell dives head-first into old-school country music on this sublime release. I can’t recommend this one highly enough." - PITTSBURGH IN-TUNE
  • "…a pure, unabashed country album and a touching portrait of a man who's ready to face his fears and grow." - ADOBE & TEARDROPS
