"Jami Lynn impresses me. Leagues elevated from the girl with acoustic guitar-folk idiom..... Sodbusters is a prime example of Dakotan craft and an unrivaled handsome achievement of a relative newcomer to the folk genre."
-Johan Schoenmakers, Altcountryforum
"Lynn’s voice shifts easily from indie rock croon to a full bodied gospel to a traditional folk storyteller, making each song unique.."
"There is actually a basic music that feels like real folk. With stories, singing and more by a voice that seems to be made of pure Crystal, but is also able to cut like a blade finely honed."
-Americana Music France
"This album sounds pure. A purity that feels authentic as the songs our
grandparents listened to on the radio as children with sometimes wild,
sometimes sultry grooves well suited for any turn of the century
basement jazz club, work farm picnic or rural speakeasy. Equal parts
Carter Family, Billie Holiday and Tin Pan Alley with enough modern
twists to thrill fans of old time Americana without alienating more
discerning acoustic audiences."
- Mathew DeRiso, NoDepression.com
"Sodbusters possesses a feminine, yet thundering voice, bouncing all over this universal spectrum." "With overflowing grace and humility towards the conventional folk canvas, she has earned the right to paint it with her own modern streaks. Lynn's dark flavor and non-traditional chord progression hammers against the grain of a less elegant lifestyle."
-Carl Anthony, 605 Magazine
