"Folk-blues material that will appeal to genre fans who will be drawn to Novak's throaty, resonant vocal tones and Golden 's agility on the frets. 'New Song', Novak's ballad, is easy on the ears, proving herself a soulful presence on the mic. We could hear this relationship-themed tune making it onto a Lifetime Network TV show."
