“The Fallen Stars are much more than just music to the ears – they are an experience and a feast to the senses. Combining elements of country rock, blues and Americana into their music, their true talent lies in their ability to create an atmosphere of fun for their audience.”
"The Fallen Stars play music that hints of America's heartland. John Mellencamp, John Hiatt, and Steve Earle have all made a name for themselves playing this style of Americana and now The Fallen Stars are taking their shot at the brass ring.”
“Highlights on “Where the Road Bends” include the freewheeling alt-country rocker “St. George’s Bank,” heartland-flavored “One, Two, Three,” the folk rock of “Raining in Hollywood” and traditional country-western gem “Diner Door."

"Where the Road Bends" is a well-crafted album with songs about out-of-the-way places, busted relationships, and escaping (both the law and your hometown). The band deftly follows the musical storytelling tradition of Bruce Springsteen, Steve Earle, and Gram Parsons."

“The Fallen Stars definitely know how to put on a show. At a performance at The Coach House in June, the band's onstage chemistry flowed into the audience, mesmerizing them. The lyrics are universal yet personal, with Bobbo Byrnes seemingly singing to individuals in the audience. Bassist Tracy Byrnes has an energizing smile and she plays bass with ease.”
