“Many Americana performers who dismiss country out of hand forget how easy it is to write an obscure, four-chord dirge set in your own frightening head space. Clean, accessible country is very hard to pull off. Ronny makes it look easy.” - Nicolas Beaudoing
“"Showcasing Askew's cutting-edge musicianship and signature, avant-garde style, "Release Me" is an alluring and meditative demand for the absolution of one's soul a stunning production helmed by Sea Changer's Shawn Byrne and Ronny Criss."”
— Lauren Tingle (Nashville-based music journalist and radio promoter)
