Critical Acclaim for Winter Wheat

 “Samson’s songs feel lived-in in ways that register as universal.” – NPR

“The diversity of this album again proves that Samson is more than just another singer-songwriter. He is an author of musical short stories, and one of the best ones of our time.” – Visions (DE) – Album of the Week

“Perhaps more than any other Canadian musician, Samson, the former frontman for The Weakerthans, has been able to communicate what it means and feels like to live in a place defined by isolation.” – Fader 

“John K. Samson’s name will occasionally come up in discussions about Canada’s greatest lyricists alongside Gord Downie, Leonard Cohen and Joni Mitchell, and his second solo album, Winter Wheat, makes yet another strong case that he’s not cited often enough.” – Exclaim
