Ready to Burn
"After twenty five years on the road, Dakota Sid could have been a burnout case. Instead, as the years passed, his songs took on a lyrical and emotional honesty that grabs an audience in the gut... His best songs reach across boundaries and draw people together." Bill Varble, Medford Mail Tribune Dakota Sid "He's got the songs and stories that can take you from laughter to deep thought in a matter of moments." Peter Berkow, Chico News and Review "For a guy who looks way traditional, Dakota Sid's raspy vocals are surprisingly contemporary, somewhere between early Jimmy Buffett and latter day Guy Clark." Dave Hoekstra, Chicago Sun Times "Dakota Sid comes on with a voice that was rode hard and put away wet. It ain't pretty, that's for sure. He sings like he has a corncob stuck in his throat. That's all right though. This ain't opera, it's folk music, and in that context Dakota Sid, his voice, his material and his ethics all seem as genuine as Woody Guthrie sounding off at a labor rally." Charlie Creekmore, Chico News and Review "His style is distinctly his own, a musician who blends the best elements of Folk and Country to produce completely unique compositions." Sierra Life Magazine.
