“Armed with a towering voice, clear message, and expansive tone, Kingsley has put together an incredible collection of gripping songs that freely and boldly explore the broad umbrella that is Americana. This record is overflowing with the heart and spirit of its musicians, most notably Kingsley himself who erupts at times with a bellow akin to legendary musician Levon Helm. It’s Kingsley’s voice and hand that make Good Way Home so compelling, so cathartic, and so unbelievably spectacular. Saying this is one of Richmond’s finest Americana releases in its storied history is a bold proclamation, but dive only a minute into the first song of the record and you’ll know it’s true.”

“Sid Kingsley is a modest man. He doesn’t think of himself as any more than simply a journeyman musician. After a few false starts, he came to the realization that making music was all he ever wanted to do, and while he doesn’t trumpet his skill and ability, it’s obvious at the outset that the man is easily one of the most talented artists making his bow in recent memory. He’s content to write and record his songs. But the profound talent at work here is evident upon hearing the opening title track of Good Way Home — talent that boasts a wellspring of honesty and conviction, fresh and formative with a wisdom and authenticity that’s as old as the ages.”- Lee Zimmerman
