Press Quotes

“sublime harmonies, stellar songwriting and dark, vintage vibes. One of “9 to Watch in ’09”“
-Performing Songwriter Magazine

“Canada’s First Couple of Alt-Retro Countrified Folk”
-Americana UK

“Twilight Hotel, a most winning pair. Dave and Brandy are not only musically talented and engaging, but they are innovative, fresh and original. They somehow manage to blend a Parisian cabaret sound, vintage rock, country and their original style into one cohesive, highly entertaining sound. I doubt they’ll be playing small clubs much longer.”
-Rich Warren WFMT Chicago

“From the classic country bend of “Impatient Love” to the heartbreaking “Sand in Your Eyes,” it is a record that sounds as genuine as it is distinct, and as distinctly genuine as few records can claim to be.”
-Jim Malec,, Jan.23.2008

“The album (Highway Prayer) marks a more complete and unique turn in the band’s sound, making the band a staple in the Canadian independent music scene.”
-Ryan Keplin, Niagara News Jan.18.2008

“…recalls the cabaret spirit of Leonard Cohen or Tom Waits with a modern melancholia that is akin to Iron & Wine”.
-Commercial Appeal, Memphis, TN

“This is an exciting disc in that it is among the first solid steps of a career that will certainly flourish..”
-Chris Martin Penguin Eggs Summer 2006

“This isn’t your mom and pop folk duo with acoustic guitars-it’s an electric guitar partnered up with and angry and lonely Eastern European accordion.”
-Dave Stobbe, The Rocky Mountain Banff

“Twilight Hotel’s brash, brooding, brand new sophomore effort, Bethune – a shady and distant country relative to music from the likes of Nick Cave and Tom Waits – gives visceral voice to the down-and out and those left behind with a healthy mix of reverence and spiteful defiance.”
-Steve Baylin, Ottawa Express Cover Story

“If Tom Waits were telling you about this really weird night he spent in Paris, this might be the music you would hear with the story. Each (song) is filled with rich imagery and storytelling, and perhaps that’s where the timeless quality comes from.”
- Dave Garvey, Stylus Magazine Winnipeg
