Some quotes:

"If you like boys bands you'll hate @markusrill but if you got a few scars & some wild blood in your veins ... you'll most likely dig him." - Ray Wylie Hubbard

"Songs shimmering with beautiful ambiguity ... brilliant lyrics" - Rolling Stone

"Rill shows great depth as a songwriter, bandleader and producer" - No Depression/USA

"If voices were highways, Markus Rill's would be gravel ... like Steve Earle, Tom Waits and Lucinda Williams, Rill excels at songwriting" - PureMusic/USA

"Germany's, indeed all of Europe's, most prominent Americana artist. A remarkable songwriter ... most striking ballads ... surprising insight" - Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung

"Song-writing at its very best. Rill has the knack of inhabiting all of the characters in his narratives, making the listener ‘believe’ in the stories. Fabulous tunes and a voice that sounds like it comes from the Americana heartlands." - Maverick magazine/UK
