"On Stay Reckless, Austin takes his natural skills of observation, empathy and poetry and kicks them into full gear Rock & Roll with the help of a few friends and one of the best Rock & Roll bands in the U.S. right now: Glossary. With their help, Stay Reckless is more expansive than anything he’s done before without losing any of the passion, wit or insight Austin has always possessed." - Ben Nichols
"You’d be hard pressed to find such a versatile and imaginable artist anywhere else. His immense vocal range and precise playing ability is a testament of his own discipline within the craft of songwriting." - Chuck Ragan
"Lucas has a background in punk, but his voice is comparative to many of the country and western greats, and his appeal spans far beyond genre lines." - Paste
