Press

Tucson Weekly: "Weekly Picks: Jim Dalton" (Issue of Feb 16-22, 2017, Vol. 34, No. 1)

"Jim Dalton. Lord does this dude have a way with a tune, so much so a shot of cheap whiskey will magically appear before you during his song about offering up barroom rounds! This guy Dalton - not to be confused with Patrick Swayze's existential ass-kicker character in Road House - blends a fetching yet soulful (yes, we said soulful) kind of Waylon/Kristofferson craft with wry Prine-esque turns of phrase ("But when she gets into that vino/She thinks I'm Rudy Valentino"). You might know him as a guitar slinger from Roger Clyne and the Peacemakers, or as The Railbenders frontman, but we really know him as an ace Colorado songsmith worthy of inclusion in any jukebox filled with vintage outlaw country. Beyond the actual songwriting you get the tunes, sometimes filled with mournful pedal steel and Dave Alvin licks." -Tucson Weekly

Colorado Life Magazine: "'I-70 Westbound' (written by Dalton) is gradually becoming a classic Colorado tune." - Ali McNally (Colorado Life Magazine Jan 2016)

Westword: The Twelve Most Essential Songs About Colorado: Part Two (October 5, 2015)

"I-70 Westbound" by The Railbenders chosen as the number 1 Most Essential Song About Colorado by Westword

AXS: 'Live at The Lost Highway' by Jim Dalton is a solid country album (August 20, 2015)
