The Everybodyfields offer some of the best sorrow-drenched Appalachian music around. Halfway There: Electricity and the South is their debut album, and while their following two albums are arguably more polished, it offers much more universal and accessible songwriting. The band has an almost fanatical following in their hometown of Johnson City, TN, and has attracted a wider regional audience after touring with the Avett Brothers.
"This trio from Johnson City, Tennessee leaves many a believer and Gillian Welch comparison in its wake. the everybodyfields debut album, "half-way there: electricity and the South" is what some in the business might call a quiet, sneaky little record, equally suitable for a Mountain Stage appearance or a slow wake up on a Sunday."
The Independent Weekly, Durham, NC
"The Johnson City trio of Jill Andrews, Sam Quinn, and David Richey make music that is channeled through decades of melancholy Folk and Country. It doesn't seem right that people in their early twenties can express such soulful sadness, but there is catharsis and beauty here too. It's good to know that Appalachia still inspires songwriters to put stories into song, especially when they are this well crafted and lovely."
The Metro Pulse, Knoxville, TN
"The Johnson City, Tennessee band has tapped into a vein of pure Appalachian melancholy that manages to make heart-wrenching sadness beautiful."
