“Best Traditional Album of 2014”  - Vermont Times Argus “Tammie” Awards

With great songwriting, impeccable playing that honors bluegrass tradition and vocals that can stop you in your tracks, Sunrise Blues has my vote for Vermont acoustic music recording of the year. More, please!  - Robert Resnick, Seven Days Review (host of VPR’s All The Traditions)

“Bob Amos is a force of nature..... an album full of gorgeous melodies, tight arrangements, compelling harmonies and vivid story lines. There is something exceptional going on here......”  

    - Carl Goldstein, WVUD, Newark DE

“One of the most talented bluegrass artists in the country... as flawless a bluegrass album as you are likely to hear...     - Art Edelstein, Times-Argus, Rutland Herald, VT

“Sunrise Blues is an ear-opener in many ways... but it is his relatively new high profile role as a banjo frontman that is a relavation. Amos’s five-string does what his songs and vocals have always done, which is to find that perfect pocket where rhythmic drive seems effortless and the melodies seem new and timeless, simultaneously.”   - Bluegrass Unlimited magazine
