“James writes like he's lived a lifetime.” —John Mellencamp


“The most vital lyricist in America today.” —Bob Harris, BBC 2 RADIO


“James McMurtry is a true Americana poet – actually he is a poet regardless of genre” —Michael Nesmith


“McMurtry might be the best topical writer performing right now and (Just Us Kids) finds him at his finest.” —Patterson Hood, Drive-By Truckers

“McMurtry aims for the jugular.” —DIRTY LINEN“


A conservative,” Franklin Roosevelt said almost 70 years ago, “is a man with two perfectly good legs who, however, has never learned to walk forward.” James McMurtry – work shirt tucked, fists clenched – turns those words into weapons on Just Us Kids. Think Steve Earle with an even more pointed – and sometimes sharper – vision. Essential listening at the height of election season. – Brian T. Atkinson, RELIX


“The songwriting conscience of America,” —FOLK WAX


“As the years pile on, James McMurtry sings with ever more authority and deserved cynical grace...With each album, (he) finds more to say and a stubborn, uncompromising way to say it.” —iTUNES


“Music that's haunting but familiar, much like the struggles he depicts.” —WASHINGTON POST


“brave, smart, and pithy music that captures James McMurtry at the top of his game.” —ALL MUSIC


“more energized than ever.” —TEXAS MONTHLY


“His songwriting is clear and precise, and he proves once again that he is not afraid to take on the powers that be.” —VINTAGE GUITAR


“McMurtry’s songwriting is in a class by itself.” —METROMIX


“Texastentialist panorama of gray-sky lucidity and neon highway jungles...” —VILLAGE VOICE


“The veteran Texas songwriter’s new album, Just Us Kids, features the slow burner ‘Cheney’s Toy,’ one of the sharpest musical indictments yet of George Bush.” —ROLLING STONE


“emboldened by the reception to 2004’s acerbic (and increasingly relevant) ‘We Can’t Make it Here,’ McMurtry ramps up the polemics on Just Us Kids.” —USA TODAY


“One of the best protest singers working today.” —TIME OUT CHICAGO
