iTunes Review

In 2013, Mike Stinson is one of the most critically respected alt-country singer/songwriters actively plying his trade. Hell and Half of Georgia is all the evidence a fan of the genre needs to make the case. After 18 years in Southern California, Stinson moved to Houston in 2010—inspiring, among other things, “Died and Gone to Houston”—and appears to have found the right environment for his artistry to flourish. (The song could be used by the city's Chamber of Commerce to lure other alt-country musicians, if no one else.) Produced by R.S. Field (John Prine, Justin Townes Earle), the album features the lively, well-heeled arrangements that Stinson’s songs require. “Box I Take to Work” is a just another day, er, night in the life of a working musician, with a pedal steel guitar that brings the song back home. “Lost Side of Town” admits that even after all the years of hard work, it’s a calling where the returns often aren't those of traditional means and measures.

Honest, Raw, Songwriting Perfection

Stinson returns to a more roots rock version of his real life view, with lyrical excellence that will undoubtably bring some references to some pretty lofty company. The honky tonk sound is still embedded, but Mike makes his own hybrid brew of incredibly good songs that transcend genre and truly make you believe that your listening to a collection that will stand the test of time and be heralded as Stinson's masterpiece (so far). "The Box I Take To Work" stops you in your tracks, as does "Walking Home In The Rain" and "This Year". Highlights are hard to separate because the really don't stop. 11 tracks that bring chuckles, heartache, top taps, and legitimacy. This is real, no aspiration to write a number one song, just an honest, open tap of real life, that Stinson has switched on wide open for "Hell And Half Of Georgia". L.A., Houston, Austin, they already know...everyone else can catch up quickly, with one listen to this.

Nice songwriting and storytelling.

A good collection of Mike's song writing. There is something for everyone who likes country roots and songs that tell a story. Kick back, grab a cold one and enjoy.
