Editorial Reviews

Rolling Stone - 4 stars out of 5 -- "SAILOR'S GUIDE is classic album length -- nine songs, 39 minutes - and best heard in one sitting; this is Nashville craft less as pop science than as rangy headphone storytelling."

Spin - "[W]ith the horns of the Dap-Kings behind him, each little letter to his son is rich with the history of country music, Memphis sax, New Orleans brass, and '60s soul. In writing an album for another soul, Simpson artfully reveals his own in the process."

Entertainment Weekly - "Blending Memphis soul, New Orleans funk. and swamp-rock blues, A SAILOR'S GUIDE TO EARTH is the Kentucky-native's most sonically ambitious set yet." -- Grade: A-

Mojo (Publisher) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "A SAILOR'S GUIDE TO EARTH ruminates on the transformative powers of parenthood, the weight and ecstasy of love."

Paste (magazine) - "It's a country album at its core, but there's a whole lot more happening here besides. Simpson dips into the sound of vintage soul with horns courtesy of the Dap-Kings."
