Eric Thom of Blurt Online has written and extensive and thoughtful review of Worth the Wait. Here are a couple excerpts:
"Kendrick’s voice grows on you in record time – its distinctive sharpness molding itself into a gentle yet expressive warmth well-suited to the honest edge of her lyrics. Add in (husband) Dan Rowe’s whisper-soft harmonies and the shivers come fast and furious as each song bursts into full blossom, given smart, tidy arrangements with a rich, full-band sound distinguished by a gentle bed of banjo and acoustic guitars."
"Goodbye Blue is a celebration of pastoral life, aided and abetted by the real-life drama of family life and grown-up challenges. In short, whether it leans on folk, country or bluegrass influences, there’s an intimacy and honesty to what’s going on here in untold proportions. It’s a far cry from the cutesy songs about kids around the campfire that so many others can’t seem to avoid. There are no dragons or ooey-gooey spiders required, nor would they make sense here. It’s simply a lovely, downhome take on life as we know it by a talented couple with kids, tastefully supported by equally talented friends. As such, it hits a nerve with anyone who copes with the real world on a positive, realistic basis, making it an encouraging salve against the weariness that sometimes comes with the territory."

We are so honored to have received a wonderful review in the Journal of Roots Music, No Depression. Here is an excerpt:
"And the voice--- the center of the Kendrick sound? As flowing and beautiful as ever.....The voices are the core, Rowe lending a light harmonic touch where needed, content to play a supporting role as both a singer and an instrumentalist. It's the balance, you see, and the sincerity. The lack of bells and whistles, the presence of mind to make each song exactly what it is and nothing less and nothing more......Starting back around 2005 or so, I began hearing about this whole Americana thing and struggled to understand the need for a new genre. Hearing Worth the Wait has me rethinking that stance."
