loads of depth here that’s well beyond the over-produced and over-rated pop music industry’ -The Barefoot Review

‘syrupy vocals and nostalgic lyrics’ -Fritz Magazine

‘Hosting ten tracks elegantly carved by an insightful songwriter whose music walks the line between folk and rock, the album sees the seasoned musician depart from her renowned gentle pop-folk style of albums past for a stronger, rockier feel.’ - Radio Adelaide

Kaurna Cronin could very quickly spark a new genre and sound across the face of music - Fortitude Magazine, UK

"Cronin delivers a nice album filled with ten killer tracks. All Killers, no fillers is something that certainly would fit for this album. Cronin brings in the best of traditions songs that are pleasant to hear and brings a certain joie de vivre to the listener." - billybop.be

"Kaurna Cronin wird von einigen gar als Gründer eines neuen Genres verhandelt. "Modern Folk" wenn man so will. Mit Gitarre, Mundharmonika und satten Drums bewaffnet, belebt der Aussie jedenfalls nicht zum ersten Mal die hiesigen Clubs. […] Folk's not dead - das hört man definitiv!" - laut.de

'Der einundzwanzigjährige Songschreiber aus dem australischen Adelaide bewegt sich mit seinem Indiefolk auf der Grenze zum Pop. Mit hingehauchter Stimme, akustischer Gitarre und federnden Schlagzeug erzählt er Geschichten in leicht sphärischer Anmutung.' - Folker

“Wicked Mountain is a collection of well-written, energetic Southren country, roots rock songs with a lot of potential and deserve the attention of all rock lovers!“ - Eric Schuurmans, RootsTime Music, Netherlands

"This is genre defying music and rolls on like a freight train.. This is a must buy release!"
Blues Matters Magazine, United Kingdom

"Cumplir con el Diablo is a brilliant record and far to good to be a hidden gem!"
Maximum Volume Music

"What a great time! King Of The Tramps are wonderful guys who play honest roots music that had the entire room engaged with their raucous energy!" 
Heather Allshouse, Swing Station, Fort Collins, CO

“Through stories of survival, escape, redemption and regret, tunesmith Troy Petty pens lyrics that sting as well as soothe atop a flawless mix of Indie and polished alternative pop.” - Jim Hanke, Forest Bride PR

“Love at first listen. What an incredible talent.” - Jer, Sleeping Bag Studios

“Departure is an EP that manages to get the balance between strife, melancholy and hope right. Petty’s music is a timestamp to the struggles and changes he was going through and there is genuine honesty throughout that can’t be manufactured.” - Matt Jensen, The Even Ground

"Troy has Nick Zinner-like skill with the sampling pedal, using the surface of the guitar to record percussive sequences between songs that layered to form the rhythm section for his performance." - John Esterly, Rare Buzz

Ganz besonders faszinierend ist hierbei “Running“ mit seinem hypnotisierend wirkenden kargen Arrangement. Wie auch immer, Petty hat, insbesondere in Hinblick auf die Live-Songs, ein ganz anderes Umfeld für eine Solo-Performance geschaffen, die mit ihrer Einzigartigkeit punkten kann. - Musik an sich August 2017

“Sonnenberg … wonderful romantic, hypnotic acoustic, beautiful and timeless..”
(Akustic Gitarre,Germany)

“…the lyrics and melodies are magical, so individual yet like they are meant to be, not forced,
timeless, they flow beautifully not like anything I have recently heard and the CD is a very
special distillation of Sonnenberg and Geoff Davies…” - (Chumki Banerjee,MudKiss)

“…the surprise with Sonnenberg is…how directly this unaffected melodic folk-pop
goes straight to the listeners. It’s like hearing completely unmediated music…all happening very
close to your beating heart...the governing spirit is indie folk with a twist…it’s all intimate without
being cloying, pleasurably nocturnal and more than a little bit wonderful…” - (The Word)

“unusual….amazing…like a mantra…” - (BBC Radio Merseyside, Billy Butler)
