"Signs Along the Road refuses any one label, except perhaps that of good evocative music."

- Bluegrass Unlimited 2010

"... the best work yet from Steve Smith, Sanders and Hard Road. Above it all soar two impassioned singers whose individual vocal gifts are periodically transformed into choruses of alchemical harmony."

- Bruce Bergethon, host of Acousticity, WGLT FM
