“With a voice like Dave Adkins, you just can’t stay out of the game for long. In the roots/bluegrass/Americana world, there are some of the most pure vocalists I’ve ever heard, and for me, Dave is in the top of that group.”

“Dave Adkins has a voice that can penetrate to the heart and soul of a song, and make the experience a life lesson for the listener.”
California Bluegrass Association

“I am truly proud for Dave, and his new venture. I appreciate his singing, along with his songwriting. He has a heart that’s bigger than his voice. This is good music that will prove its place, and he will continue to be a positive force in this world of Bluegrass.” – Marty Raybon

“With a rhythmically rolling banjo undercurrent, waves of fiddle and guitar raising the listener to emotional crests, Dave Adkins’ voice offers something real, something trustworthy and something thrilling to hold on to. It’s an exciting ride—this self-titled new album from Dave Adkins. Buy an extra copy; Adkins possesses the impressive kind of voice—full of personality and dimension, and instantly relatable—that you just want to share.”
Greg Victor, Parcbench.com

Charlie Hall – The Bluegrass Express. 100.7fm WCYO

“Not only does Dave Adkins have a voice that is instantly recognizable, he knows how to sing a song. With the release of his latest single, ‘Change Her Mind,’ Dave expands his singer-songwriter arsenal with a well-penned tune revolving around the hope of saving a love that is ready to die. With Dave’s unmistakable hard-driving vocals, and an outstanding line-up of musicians, ‘Change Her Mind’ is putting the bluegrass world on notice that Dave Adkins is ready for his time in the spotlight.” – Rita Small and Tim Strong – Bluegrass In The Valley, WOBO 88.7fm, Batavia, Ohio

“Kentucky singer/songwriter, Dave Adkins, has a hit on his hands with the first release from his upcoming self-titled solo project. ‘Change Her Mind’ is a great uptempo song that will keep listeners from changing their radio station or forwarding their cd player. In fact, it is a song you will want to hit the repeat button…several times. Looking forward to seeing what other gems the Elkhorn City native has in store for us. Great job, Dave!” – Mike Kelly 96.7 Merle fm. WMYL

“David Adkins has done it again; He has written an instant classic. ‘Change Her Mind’ is a great song that will be a lead for another great album from this fresh singer-songwriter and friend of bluegrass.” – Ken Cartwright – Program Director of KYAC FM and Host of Ken Till Ten.

“Since the first time I heard ‘Pike County Jail,’ I’ve been hooked! The brand new single, ‘Change Her Mind,’ is everything I expected and it’s been on repeat all evening! From his powerful vocals and original material to his high energy live shows, Dave Adkins is the real deal! I can’t wait to see what’s next!” —
Ira Crawford Twin Oaks Park, Hoboken Ga.

“Dave Adkins is a class act in every way. Not only are he and his band putting out some of the best bluegrass you’ll hear, they are a true pleasure to work with too! The band recently played our annual Chantilly Farm Bluegrass Fest and to say they were a crowd pleaser is an understatement. You’ll be hard pressed to find a more dynamic entertainer, both on stage and off. Dave treats each and every one of his fans like they’re old friends. One thing is for sure, this band is just getting started and we look for big things from Dave Adkins in the years to come.” – Jason Gallimore Chantilly Farms Bluegrass festival Floyd, Virginia

Previous Quotes

“with a voice as big as the western sky and a delivery that matches his burly frame. But since his first appearance as a member of Republic Steele, Dave has developed a fine control of the power at his disposal, turning the full barrage loose only rarely, to very positive effect.” — Bluegrass Today

“Adkins “voice finds just the right nuance for each song, treating each as a unique musical portrait. His trustworthy vocals frame each with warmth and authenticity.”  – – PARCBENCH

“I’m looking for my rubber stamp that says HIT and as soon as I find it I’m going to rubber stamp this album with HIT all over it. The song itself is just about the best introduction to the rest of the album you could find. Bluegrass to the Bone! Followed by Dave’s rendition of John Conlee’s Top-Ten country hit from 1978 which may be even better than the original, right on down to the last song on the album, The Storm, Dave Adkins’ name needs to be placed right up next to all of the great vocalists in the hall of honor.”  – Brian McNeal, Prescription Bluegrass Album Review of That’ Just The Way I Roll
