Press Highlights

"Led by Bobbo Byrnes' sizzling guitar, the Fallen Stars prove themselves with their stellar country roots rock. With a tight rhythm section backing him, Byrnes unreels hot licks with a thick tone, laying down an album of originals that are catchy and cool." 
~Vintage Guitar Player Magazine, 4/12

"Two singers lead this ultra-tight quartet...what really comes through on these recordings is that this road-tested unit have performance chops to the max." 
~ Music Connection Magazine (more)

"On Heart Like Mine the couple not only shares vocal duties but sings in tandem as well as harmonize together with chiming clarity. The songs are full of touching sentiment and are well played by Geib, O'Yeah and Byrnes', but it's the vocals that really put the tunes over the top.... Exceptional tracks aimed for nationwide airplay include the ethereal rocker "Glad," the easy country glide of "Valentine's Day," the epic "Jericho," the two-steppin' hoedown of "What's His Name," the footstompin' thump of "All I Want," the gallop of "Summer Wine," and the Ramones meet Garth Brooks vibe of "Truckin' Song."
~Metronome Magazine (more)

"Exhilarating and emotive, the Fallen Stars’ latest disc “Heart Like Mine” explores the expansive alt-country movement with forceful rock (“Glad,” “All I Want”), infectious mid-tempo material (“Jealous Kind,” “Jericho”) and poignant ballads (“Dam,” “Last Hurrah”). 
~ Coachella Weekly (more)

"Ultimately, in their performances, appreciation for classic rock as much as classic country and at times their sense of an America where lights are burning dimly in the midst of cold emptiness, the Fallen Stars at their best here, on songs like "Dam" and "What's His Name," call to mind a bit of a peppier riff on the still underrated Walkabouts, perhaps America's most unfairly obscure roots band. If the Byrnes can bring a little of that majesty to local stages in their particular way -- and they do -- then it's all to the good."
