"There’s an edge to these songs, a raw honesty, that cuts deep and makes a mark that will last. This is the work of a right and natural troubadour, and I imagine I’ll turn to this album many more times in my days."

“His songs show flashes of lightness balanced by a reflective edge. There’s an evocative texture to the tunes, granting depth to the narrative pluck of the lyrics.”

“The saltwater soaked lyrics are offset by Furr’s rustic musical approach which takes it’s cues from the lone star States indelible blend of sun blasted country atmospherics”                                                                                    

PRESTON JONES / The Star Telegram

 

"These folk-rock compositions are largely gorgeous, luminous creations as Furr honors his wife’s memory with his trademark blend of sharply etched observations and deftly performed music."

"It (Trails & Traces) creates a sense of space thats hard to describe. Something about it captures the distances and expanse of the desert. This album sounds, to me, the way West Texas looks."

SETH WILSON / CULT WESTERN

 

"It’s about making something meaningful, something cathartic/therapeutic for the artist, but also comforting/useful for the listeners. Trails & Traces is poignant but never morose, putting love over regret and allowing hope to be the dominant emotion."

WAKE THE DEAF

 

"On its own, the new album is a fantastic example of folk-rock. But when one listens to a song like "Branches," which is a somewhat up-tempo number, and then envisions a loving husband serenading his young, dying wife, it's impossible to not feel a sting that hurts just enough to make the words jump out of the speakers and into vivid reality." -

KELLY DEARMORE / DALLAS OBSERVER

 

All current and would-be singer-songwriters, take note: Trails & Traces is a pristine, textbook example of the fine art and tough craft of turning personal suffering into musical artistry.
