Feedback - Into The Bottomlands:
 - “A poet with a guitar, Thomas Hine takes a slice of blues and adds a dash of folk to make a true Americana pie. Hine combines introspective lyrics and ear-friendly musical composition for a unique, heartfelt convert. He's got a Bob Dylan mind and an Andrew Bird ear; it's a winning combination.” Boulder Daily Camera
