“I’ve had the pleasure of hearing The Novelists perform live. They are gifted songwriters and talented musicians with strong lead voices. This is a band with lots of heart & soul.”

Daryl Stuermer (Genesis, Phil Collins)

“The Novelists’ instrumental and vocal virtuosity shine throughout the album [With Drawl].”

Mike Sion, Reno Gazette Journal, December 26, 2018

“The group combines folk-like story telling lyrics with magnificent multi-part harmonies, layers of instrumentation and rich production. The resulting sound is uniquely theirs and very easy to enjoy from the beginning to the end of this twenty-four song long musical journey, which is like twenty-four short stories set to a soundtrack.”

Karyn Albano, Modern Rock Review, December 18, 2016

“With this video, with this song, The Novelists show that growing old is not a tragedy in the slightest. In fact, growing old especially with your best friend is a true blessing. We can all but hope for a love as strong as Morris and Estelle’s.”

Corinne Pachl, Impose Magazine, June 28, 2016

“The thing about The Novelists is that there is no weak link. You hear it in their fine debut CD “Backstory,” and it’s confirmed in their live performances. Every member of this four-piece band is a gifted, singer, songwriter, and musician. Together they create something very special.”
