For "Starts at Dusk":

"Absolutely outstanding..."
Brian Miller, Empire of the Senseless.

"Beautiful examples of pop songcraft, with a little bluesiness (in the best way possible) thrown in – gritty guitars, harmonies, Fender Rhodes..." Nicholas Pipitone, Commonstate. 

“'Starts At Dusk' feels like a warm summer night from a time gone by; timeless songs played with heart that feel instantly memorable.” Ken Sumka, 88Nine, Milwaukee

“’Waiting it Out’ is Fleetwood Mac meets Pink Floyd. The entire album represents a whole new level of songwriting and production excellence for the Wooldridge Brothers.” Mike Endrizzi, FS Camels, That's What You Get (Minneapolis)

"'Starts At Dusk' is the Wooldridge Brothers, fully realized. This album takes chances, and rolls snake eyes every time. I could not listen just once, and it's refreshing to say that it took me on a journey … excellent." Liv Mueller, songstress, Chanteuse (Milwaukee)


For "Scott Wooldridge."

"Clear, compelling, heartfelt roots songs with an alt-country bent."
Andrea Swensson, Local Current Blog

"A folky set with philosophical anthems, sweet love songs, and spirited steel guitar work."
Chris Riemenschneider, Star Tribune.

"Song after song is a polished pop gem."
Paddy Fineran, Kenosha News.

Tip Jar!
It's becoming more and more difficult for most musicians to make money from selling CDs, downloads, etc. A lot of us are trying to deal with this new reality with a minimum amount of complaining and a maximum amount of grace.
