Blues de Musicien

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Rick Anderson
The Pine Leaf Boys may be young, and their sound may be fresh and energetic, but there's nothing rebellious or even particularly adventurous about their style -- they're not blending Cajun 2-steps with techno beats or writing Creole versions of Christina Aguilera songs or anything like that. All they're doing is playing classic Creole music in a time-honored style with an abundance of energy and fire.
