"TRAVIS, WE ALL LOVE YOUR STUFF. YOU DA MAN!"
..."WEIRD AL" YANKOVIC
"I LIKED IT. GIVE THE OL' HOMEBOYS EVERY INCH OF MY LOVE"
...PENN JILLETTE of Penn and Teller
"TRAVIS...A MUSICAL GOD."
...DAVE BARRY, syndicated comic genius
"A country boy in a cowboy hat who digs metal and hip-hop as much as honky tonk? Who mixes motor-mouth raps with chunky power chords and weepy steel guitar? Call Travis Shredd gimmicky if you must, but you can't deny his music is fun, funny, and full-throttle energized. Watch out and hang on."
...Editor's Review, Download.com
"an ongoing and underpublicized miracle in the Seattle scene... Shredd's mix of death metal, country and rap is the most succinct mix of modern America available..."
...DAVE LILJENGREN, Pandemonium Magazine
"This is what happens when you play country music backwards. Travis, positively aglitter in a western-cut suit and Stetson, shifted gears faster than a Daytona 500 race car driver, moving adroitly from lumbering country to an amphetamine blur of head-banging metal. His fashion sense and guitar prowess make him the dark prince of country music."
...REVIEW OF NXNW SHOW ON OREGONLIVE.COM
"An udder-yanking hybrid of thrash metal, pig-porkin' country and chest beating rap. There's a song on here for everyone."
...JEFF GILBERT, Guitar World Magazine
"One listen to 'My Ex's Lawyer is the Antichrist' or 'Fire in Her Eyes (hail satan)' and you'll be a believer, pardner/dude/homey. These guys put on a live show that'll have you headbanging, two-stepping and laughing yourself stupid."
...BILL FROST, Salt Lake City Weekly
"...CUTS THROUGH THE POST-GRUNGE GLOOM LIKE A CLOWN WAGON AT A COUNTY FAIR."
...GENE STOUT, Seattle Post-Intelligencer
"THERE'S PLENTY OF FINGER-LICKING, HELL-SPEWING, BASS THUMPING MUSIC. IT WORKS INCREDIBLY WELL."
...MIKE SAVOIA, The Rocket Magazine
"In the rodeo, where imminent injury or death are often inches away, only the best riders and ropers get to be clowns. With this excellent work of post modern country neo hip hop thrashing, the future looks promising for Travis Shredd and the Good Ol' Homeboys."
...DAVE DESROCHERS, Pandemonium Magazine
"Travis and his Good Ol' Homeboys actually manage to pull off their far-fetched premise with genre-jumping stylish verve. Shredd juggles his stage personas with supurb timing, and the Homeboys have plenty of soul and twang to spare."
...MARTY HUGHLEY and CURT SCHULZ, The Oregonian
