What the Press is saying...

"Jacobs' songs channel down-home influences from Greg Allman to Lowell George ("Sanctuary," "Dirt on My Hands"), Liner's songs echo the free-spirited Americana music of Charlie Daniels or Old and in the Way ("Chavez," "Moonlight Mission"). But with the help of Berlin, The Bridge begins to move past these influences on National Bohemian, crafting a sound that is fresh and completely its own." - Relix

"It takes all of a minute into The Bridge's new album, National Bohemian, to realize one is in the presence of a serious rock ‘n’ roll band. Muscular tenacity and strongly drawn lines mark every track from barnstorming opener “Sanctuary” to sweetly shuffling closer “Dirt On My Hands,” showing a maturity and high level craftsmanship that marks them as this generation’s answer to vintage Little Feat, Ozark Mountain Daredevils and pre-McDonald Doobie Brothers, where strong harmonies, consistently memorable tunes and a commitment to unforced diversity and modern wrinkles drawn from hip-hop and other genres add up to real dividends for listeners." - Jambase

"National Bohemian is  the perfect culmination of their previous ten years on the road. All the elements that they have become known for, a sound born in the backwoods and the mountains, but raised on the streets of New Orleans, led by intense guitar work and heartfelt songwriting are present.  It is an album built as equally upon the intense, psychedelic freak-out of "Sanctuary" or the high energy of "Rosie", as it is the quiet beauty of "Dirt on my Hands" or "Long Way to to Climb".  It is quite simply the perfect capstone to the band's first ten-years, but an even better starting point for the next ten." - Honest Tune

"The Bridge take what they love and play it the way they hear it, combing soul, folk, roots, rock, country, blues, and bluegrass into a healthy concoction. Isn't that what this music thing is all about? The Bridge spread the love and the gospel of Americana, doing their part to make roots a national obsession via National Bohemian." - The Alternate Root

"The Bridge get the lessons passed on by great bands. They're subtle in the right spots, rock when needed, and they write great songs. The guitar work of Cris Jacobs and Kenny Liner's mandolin along with Los Lobos' Steve Berlin's production are as perfect as the playing of the entire band." - Vintage Guitar

"National Bohemian is sea-salt soaked through, like a gulf breeze blowing in over the Louisiana swampland, from the opening notes of the haunting, first track “Sanctuary,” through the tender, beautiful closing ballad "Dirt On My Hands." - Popmatters
