Farewell Milwaukee served as the perfect opening act for Ryan Adams’ headlining set. The strength of their new songs suggests that larger stages and audiences are in the future for this hardworking band.
— City Pages review of Basilica Block Party set
Although primarily an Americana band, it’s detours like “Figure You Out” that make Farewell Milwaukee special.
— The Music Ramble
At first glance, I couldn’t believe a band as ‘young’ as Farewell Milwaukee had enough miles behind them to sound so much like a band from the late ‘60s. For an instant, I heard Neil Young, The Band and The Allman Brothers. But the greatest part about Farewell Milwaukee’s sound is that it’s original.

praise for previous albums:

"A compelling set of songs, one that invites further - and frequent -- returns, even while making a connection first time around." 

-Lee Zimmerman, No Depression

"Can't Please You, Can't Please Me is the sort of record you can put on, hit play, and leave on repeat for hours."

-Natalie Gallagher, City Pages

"On 'True Love Don’t Leave Scars,' though, the guys strum their way through a woodsy, summery sound, bringing to mind the warm California sun that shone down on their country-rock ancestors back in the ‘60s and ‘70s."

- Andrew Leahey, American Songwriter
