Hard-edged, earthy old time folk-roots meets time honored and deep seeded modern lyricism...conjuring up images of diners, motels, lost souls, sin and salvation along the edges of a rural route. A judgement day road trip with the "Hemingway of the Highway".
"Mat D’s Plank Road Drag is an ambitious record that hits on all cylinders to set a high water mark for any other contender for this year’s album of the year." - Baron Lane / Twangnation.com
"...a 2 story step above anything he’s released to date. Odds on fave for my top 10 of the year, easily Essential Listening today" Bryan Childs / Ninebullets.net
"an excellent listen that gives a greater emphasis to the song-writing which is high quality stuff, tales of dirt road diners, highway dreams and dust bowl babes." Simon / Beat Surrender UK
" ten memorable tracks that range from frenetic to mournful, from mountain to strip mall, banjo to subtle electric leads... like angels and demons cage-fighting on the head of a red-hot pin" Jim Pipkin / HickoryWind.org
