Reviews For The Troth Sessions

Irony and poetry, roots and even rock attitudes in the wake of people like Robbie Fulks and Loudon Wainwright III are the characteristics that formed the basis of his musicality and hearing the nine songs that make up these "The Troth Sessions" one realizes the solidity of his writing and the strength of his interpretations, with a voice that reminds me in many moments that of Adam Duritz, frontman of the great Counting Crows. In these sessions Rich Krueger somehow revisits his past in the classic folk form, building an attractive selection in approach, spartan but full-bodied and full, and literally relevant. Interpersonal relationships are the leitmotif of these stories, all with a recognizable and original 'trademark', which is absolutely no small thing. From "True True Love" chosen as the first song to be presented to the public at the final and somewhat sketchy "Heaven", Rich Krueger takes us through sensations that are certainly already experienced but fresh and vigorous, sung with great passion and accompanied by a brilliant pickin ' guitarist. "The Troth Sessions" is the classic record in which you do not miss a 'full band' such is the beauty of the songs and the convincing intensity of the interpretations. ” - Remo Ricaldone

Randy Newman-esque…[I was] won over by his voice and way with words, I’m definitely going to make a point of catching up on his two studio albums.”” - Mike Davies

Folk Radio (Folk-Roots-Americana-Alternative) from the UK Midlands

I really, really like to listen to Krueger's voice and guitar playing. In the song he tells a story, like true singer-songwriters do. Krueger also shows that he can play an interesting guitar part as well. If I have to name a name to refer to it's Counting Crows. True True Love could have been a Counting Crows song and that is meant as a compliment here.” - Wout

The lyrics are literate, mostly cliché-free, and imaginative, and the performances are engaging” - Jeff Berger

Americana Highways

A fan of left field folkies and wearing their influences on his sleeve as he pushes it all forward with his own stamp, he continues to craft a musical legacy that makes you want him to put down his stethoscope a little more often. A staunch left fielder, he knows how to keep it always interesting and unexpected in a most delightful way.” - Chris Spector

Midwest Record

Listen to The Troth Sessions….The One You Love”, one of the album’s best, then offers timeless singer-songwriter prowess where Krueger makes his craft seem effortless in his vast, folk friendly skill.” - Tom Steven Haugen

“ 4 stars… An album of grace, delivered by a voice that catches the heart, performed with clemency in its arms; The Troth Sessions is understanding of the ability to fall but also rise again with honour.” - Ian D Hall

Even early on in Rich's career, you can hear the pure emotion in his stellar songwriting on the tunes ‘True True Love’ and ‘Amazing’." ” - JP

Twentieth-century material done solo acoustic, and fairly deft acoustic too, but not so’s you won’t wonder whether his tunes aren’t better off when poked in the ass by a band (“The Ballad of Mary O’Connor,” “Heaven”) **” - Robert Christgau
