Why extol someone’s virtues when major newspapers have already done so? “On his debut disc, Crazy Days, the 25-year-old singer and songwriter taps into influences such as Wilco, the White Stripes and My Morning Jacket, as well as Bob Dylan and the Rolling Stones…The Austin Chronicle and Austin American-Statesman have already praised the CD. Now Stein aims to expand his reach outside of the capital.” – Mario Tarradell, Dallas Morning News – Check him out here.
