“[The Foghorns music] is a sound that feels at home in the rainy weather of Seattle, yet ventures out side and challenges the local flavor of folk.”

“Some people have referred to The Foghorns music as country music. It’s more the music of a country like ours, but it does contain the greatest thing about country music: happy songs about life’s saddest offerings. In truth, we’d be better off if we stopped talking about what to call it and just listened to it a little more.”

“Cameron takes on the “look at me” America where our most precious, intimate moments are rendered irrelevant, unless photos are posted on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram.

Thankfully, his music has the humility to make it seem like everything’s going to be okay. Listen to The Foghorns and momentarily believe that a decent job is at hand, sexual intimacy lingers just around the corner and movies starring a brooding, indifferent teenager portraying a vampire will cease to exist.

Cameron’s songs are honest and his lyrics hurt. And he and his Foghorns plan to continue performing even if his hands bleed from strumming his guitar.”

This was from Seattle Weekly. Dave Lake wrote:

“Over the past few years, the band has become a celebrated local act, with regular gigs at the Comet, the Blue Moon, and the Tractor…The album is warm with vintage instruments and hummable melodies—which makes sense given Cameron’s occasional gigs at a local studio, where his job is simply to coax great sounds out of the mikes, amps, and recording equipment of decades past.”

Massive thanks to KEXP for this October 2009 post.

“Today’s song “Old Bachelors in Cleveland” is in a similar vein as fellow Seattlites The Duchess & The Duke (folkadelic) but still maintains its bluegrass roots and instrumentation (namely the slide guitar). The lyrics, laden with melancholy and the harmonies of Cameron and vocalist Katie Quigley invite listeners to continue that journey Bart Cameron started so long ago.”
