We try not to concern ourselves with this shit. We all write, we all pour our hearts into what we do. It is, and has always been, about the music and the people who came to dance...but for those who DO care...here are a few things people are saying... "...an album brimming with some of the best country-tinged, fire-breathing blue-collar rock to come out of Colorado in recent memory." The Westword "...This was supposed to be Lucero's year, but Arliss Nancy completely stole their thunder. Rock and country have never had a more natural union. Each lyric just oozes passion and sincerity, and I don't know of another band that can maintain such a hard-hitting and sincere delivery..." The Punk Site.com "...Arliss Nancy's Dance to Forget is the best barroom record of 2009...an eleven track, booze-fueled romp through heartache & lust, desperation & salvation. This is country-infused old-school rock music at it's independently produced best." The Mikey Vegas "...hardscrabble, whiskey-soaked, fire-breathing, southern rock template, the outfit operates with such conviction that you have no trouble believing every word and hanging on to every note. If you're looking for meat and potatoes rock with a twinge of twang that will leave you balling your eyes out, clutching your heart and feeling more alive than ever, meet Arliss Nancy." The Westword
PJ Bond is a wandering songster who has traversed the American and European landscapes more times than he can easily count. He got his start over ten years ago in what was then called the DIY Indie scene, back when musicians still made money on CDs and people spent a lot of their time trying to get signed. A decade later, Bond's lyrically dark but otherwise upbeat songs span from introspective Americana to reverb-laden rock from an earlier era. If forced to draw parallels and speak of influences, one might say he has drawn from the likes of Wilco and Elliott Smith, though he might prefer to credit Bruce Springsteen and Bob Dylan these days. When not traveling the globe, PJ splits his time between Brooklyn, NY and Asheville, NC, a small geographical fact that is nevertheless telling of the different musical threads he uses to weave his musical fabric
