What People Are Saying About Stellar Jays

(Early Winters is) A superb debut album from the Seattle-based band that has something for everyone... As well as writing some fascinating and evocative songs, Siems has an interesting somewhat world-weary voice that at times has echoes of Lou Reed and Jeff Tweedy... ‘Early Winters' an excellent debut from Stellar Jays. Hopefully it’s just the first of many.” - Alan Fitter

Americana UK

Bittersweet but infused with determined optimism, Stellar Jays bring a shine to their jangly Alt-country American rock and roll with sweet vocal harmonies and shimmering reverb. Crunchy blues leads dance with sparkling acoustic chords, while an in-the-pocket rhythm section keeps things trundling along as we head off on our melodic journey into the great unknown.” - Tommy Johnson

Ghettoblaster Magazine

Breezy and bittersweet new melodic alt-country sounds from Seattle-based Stellar Jays. The band’s influences include Wilco, Turnpike Troubadours, Old 97s and Neil Young. You hear that and more running through this great track (Angela), taken from their new EP 'Wildcat'.”
