Chuck Pyle | Press Quotes

"Chuck Pyle's songs, playing and singing are transporting. If you're looking for top-flight alt-country-inflected contemporary folk... this is it."
– Sing Out!

"... a collection of meticulously crafted songs, exquisitely executed and subtly produced. Pyle cloaks his compositions in a New Age Cowperson genre with themes of the southwestern landscape and the expansion of consciousness it engenders, but the framework is essentially classical in nature; the pieces have the measured feel of a Bach Musette."
– Dirty Linen

"With his shaven head, custom-made white O'Farrell cowboy hat, and Tony Lama cowboy boots, Pyle has a light, charismatic voice and a virtuosic guitar style that is both refined and impressive."
– Acoustic Guitar Magazine

"Pyle was one of my favorite songwriter discoveries of this year. Every song lover in town should make it a point to seek out this man's music."
– Music Row Magazine

"Between [Chuck Pyle's] humorous patter comes the signature loping guitar and rural western intellect"
– Lubbock Avalanche Journal

"Vivid landscapes flow from Pyle's pen with grown up themes of the New West . . .[his] big campfire-smoked voice and solid guitar work anchor the song... it's really quite impressive how full the orchestration sounds with only Pyle's voice and guitar."
– Eugene Weekly, Eugene OR

"[Chuck Pyle's] music is kind, insightful, catchy, possessing a wry humor, full of life, imagery and stories of people and places he's been."
– InterMountainAcousticMusician SLC UT

"Chuck Pyle is a class act.  Listening to his silky smooth delivery and fine guitar work on his Django Reinhardt-inspired tune Affected by the Moon, you know he is more than the Zen Cowboy – he's the Chairman of the Board!"
– Pat Crawford, WUWF

"Chuck gave a tremendous performance tonight in New Bern. The audience loved him. I rarely book an artist unless Iíve seen a live performance. I took a gamble and it paid off big time. He's now on my 'Must return someday' list."
– Grady Ormsby, Down East FolkArts Society
