Press Response to MESCALITO
“…success in this genre means telling the story well. And Bingham does just that.”
“…his best songs rock the hardest: the hand-clappy rave-up "Bread and Water" and the anti-war, pro-pot-growing cow-punk "Dollar a Day."
“…Bingham’s debut album for Lost Highway, bears the hardscrabble markings of someone accustomed to the tough life.”
This major label debut is a powerfully haunting work of Texas troubadour rock ‘n’ roll, 14 rough and bruised songs, wrung from the heart with an ache and a drawl.’
“Anyone seeking to invent a modern-day Texas troubadour couldn’t do better than to replicate Ryan Bingham’s life story.”
“… a promising introduction to a skillful young songwriter.”
“Compelling listening to the highest sense.”
"Epic yet intimate, rugged but crafted, Bingham forces you to hang on his every whiskey-drenched word."
