"Walk" is a gem and is some of the most original material I have had the privilege to review so far this year... ...it was music of this caliber that got me into the Americana scene in the first place.
- Texas Star Tribune

Excellent record... ...some of the best country/folk songs written and played this year. Highly recommended.
-Americana UK

I dare you to not love what these guys in Red Rooster are doing.
- Freight Train Boogie

Just when you think there's nothing new in folk, along comes the New York-based Red Rooster to blow you away.
- Washington Examiner

Red Rooster puts multiple genres into a big pot and stirs it around making a musical concoction that is truly unique. If that's not enough reason to listen to WALK repeatedly, then do it because the songs are just that friggin' great.
- Ink 19

One lovely song after another, gorgeous singing and a deliciously underproduced sound.
-Sarasota Herald-Tribune

"Walk" promises a lot and delivers on every count... Don't be surprised if Walk shows up on a host of end-of-year "Best" lists.
-Wildy's World


...a unique patchwork quilt of musicians and influences—bluegrass, folk, country and other Levon Helm colors. ...confident and patient Americana pace.
-Relix

Wonderful new record! ...guitar playing is superb and the voices blend really beautifully.
-Don Was (Grammy-Winning Producer)
