"(Sugar Lime Blue)...shakes it all up musically speaking, with an old-is-new-again style that feels comfortably familiar, but with a unique twist they definitely can call their own." - Sue Siens, Wilson County Living Magazine July/August 2016
“Like a black crow perched on a lonesome Southern wire, Sugar Lime Blue compel attention. ....On the road in the aftermath of their well-contoured new album, “Move That Earth,” Sugar Lime Blue come packed with new songs. They wisely blend Southern roots originals with clever covers.. Country in nature yet more attuned to folk and rock’s jam band element, Sugar Lime Blue sweeten with soul for a mix that blends rhythm with roots. Add a touch of mystery. Spin tight grooves and Sugar Lime Blue results in Southern rock finery.”- Tom Netherland, Bristol's Herald Courier (Oct 01, 2015)
