Communing with Abby SomeOne on the Road
Rapid City Journal (Steve Thorpe)
...I was planning a trip to California...All the other regional CDs I brought along stayed in their jewel cases. "Schizosonic" is still in the CD player, and I'll listen to it all the way back. Pick a favorite song? Out of the question...The entire collection is an uplifting message set to a danceable beat. This incarnation of the band is the best ever, and there's an energy in the music that is rare in recordings. Musically, there aren't any missteps, and that, combined with the energy of the recording, makes "Schizosonic" compelling. If the right people heard "Schizosonic," Abby SomeOne could easily be all over the radio.
I'm slow to get lyrics...I was through most of Wyoming before certain lines started to come clear, and I realized that Shawn (Michael Bitz) isn't just a good lyricist. He's excellent.
For me...the trip across I-80 is familiar. it is colored by old friendships, loves that have grown, endured for a while, then faded to memories--all of which are now embedded in the landscape of western America. "Schizosonic" has become part of that mix. It's a good thing.
Jeff Lawrence - Artist Representation and Management, St. Paul, MN
"Abby SomeOne is a true slice of Americana, their music captivates you and draws you in. They were the surprising favorite at our Rockin' the Hills Fest this year, and with their polished production and wakeless, have all the ingredients necessary to make it in the music business..."

If that's not regional exposure, I don't know what is.
Mei Young, KQRS Minneapolis
This band from South Dakota plays moving music with undeniable lyrics that leave you wanting more. This group will become one of the next big things, or I'll eat my hat.
Jake Michaels KRCS, Rapid City
The most worldly band to come out the Midwest...from intense energy to raw lyrical emotion, Abby SomeOne's raised a FIST for modern music.
Corey Ward, KSQY Rapid City
When I hear Abby SomeOne I think of old Van Morrison with Mellencamp and the Pitch-dark Crowes thrown in.
Charlie O'Douglas, OM--Rushmore Radio Group (KKMK Magic93.9)
Heartfelt emotion best describes the latest effort from Abby SomeOne. All the pieces to this musical puzzle fit with great vocal presence and rhythm that won't let you sit still! ASO has more promise than most other bands I've heard in awhile!
Chad Carlson, PD--KSQY95.1
It's exciting to see such an entertaining group with the energy, passion, and drive that ASO brings. They're a true original and one to keep your eye on.
