One of those bands that matters. - PopMatters
A band that seems to understand where inspiration can lead - NPR
"The kind of hard-rocking folk-punk band that makes you want to dance with the person next to you and then punch them in the face. In a totally good way." - Esquire
An American rock and roll band, The Rationales have been noted for their instantly memorable anthemic songs, their lush arrangements full of soaring harmonies, guitar pyrotechnics, swirling keys and evocative pedal steel. Bringing in aspects of alternative rock and americana, powerpop and a hint of weird, the Rationales bring to mind such acts as Wilco, Radiohead and Cracker and the Jayhawks, while always sounding entirely like themselves.
The RATIONALES nominated for a BOSTON MUSIC AWARD for "Best Americana Act" Sept 2017
Some reviews for Jenee Halstead's magical newest record "Edge of the World"
"Her new EP, Edge of the World," hits my ears like sorceress music, rings of smoke through the trees and the bells of Rhymney." - Jed Gottlieb, Boston Herald
"She takes you to the edge with some of the most beautifully contemplative, ambient arrangements of recent times. I put this record on and was awestruck." - Steve Morse, Berklee College of Music
