NPR’s Top New Artist On All Songs Considered

“Beneath The Bones digs deep down into Baxley’s Americana fusion of blues, gospel, and bottomless soul. There’s no holding back on hymnal, soulful singles “Beneath The Bones,” and “These Arms are Open,” both glued tight by the heavy husk of Baxley’s vocals.”
-American Songwriter“Beneath The Bones’ utilizes a hauntingly beautiful choir hymn that lays the groundwork for the delicate guitar melodies and string arrangements that enrapture listeners with the moody, serene, and alluring atmosphere they create.”

Atwood Magazine“On the meditative track, Baxley combines the bluey and ethereal sounds of Hozier and Lewis Capaldi while maintaining a stunning simplicity”
– Glide

“Featuring gentle, evocative instrumentation supporting Baxley’s coarse voice as he engages in pensive reflection of life’s most trying and painful moments.” 
The 405

“He is a musical nomad that tells his tales in his music and his tales are some of the most fascinating you will hear.”
– HuffPost

“Baxley’s muddied, molasses-soaked vocals make the most immediate impression, evoking the sound of someone worldly-wise and wizened.”
PopMatters
