Twilight Drifter:

"Doug Strahan, the smoky singer and guitar monster behind doom twangers Chili Cold Blood and cosmic honky-tonkers Moonhangers, has readied an excellent new platter called Twilight Drifter. The six-song effort spins like a collection of singles representing diverse vocations: Southern boogie, outlaw country, blue-eyed soul, and barroom rock with thoughtful, left-field lyricism. RIYL Charlie Rich, Gary Stewart, and Lukas Nelson." - Kevin Curtin, The Austin Chronicle, November 24, 2017

Coal Black Dreams, Late Night Schemes:

"After years as both the garage blues-bashin' Chili Cold Blood and more countrified Moonhangers, this gritty local trio decided guitarist/vocalist Doug Strahan should go solo – with the same supporting cast: Ethan Shaw engineering and playing bass, steel guitar, and banjo, and Matt Puryear on drums. Gone "solo," Strahan revives the lonesome, orn'ry spirit of outlaw country, only this strain owes as much to Gram Parsons and the Flying Burrito Brothers as Waylon Jennings and Willie Nelson. Opener "Good Crosswinds," an electric, piano-drenched gospel ballad about love and alcohol that contributes the album's title, snakes crunchy blues like a cobra on absinthe, while "I'll Make It Rain" finds the frontman's Waylon-esque phase-shifted rhythm guitar underpinned by disco drums. In between there's pure mountain music ("So Damn Tired"), even some Stonesy rockin' ("Keep It on the Record"). Waylon wouldn't have done it this way, but he'd have approved." - Tim Steggal, The Austin Chronicle, May 16, 2014

"Many try to resurrect that heroine sweat sound of the 70’s. They throw reel to reel seances. They blow all manner of money on vintage gear. But I’ve never heard someone get so close to the true heart of that sound as Doug Strahan does on this album. He doesn’t strike the mood of Fleetwood Mac’s Rumors or Eric Clapton’s Slowhand, he hits on the vibe of the albums that inspired those—that deep, gritty shit from JJ Cale, The James Gang, and Faces before Rod Stewart started screwed everything up. This is the real deal folks. The textures on this album are sublime, delivered with this incredible depth perception that few have the patience or expertise to pull off, making this album a vintage Audiophile’s paradise even if Strahan was reading from a phone book or covering Bobby McFerrin." - Saving Country Music, April 27, 2014
