"Dodd Ferrelle just released his most commercial album in 10 years with 'Hide the World.' It is also by far the best album I have listened to in ten years."
Beth, RAPID RIVER MAGAZINE, Oct 2011
"The strongest songwriting and vocalizing yet from Ferrelle is powered along with sturdy backing from fellow Athenians David Barbe, Kyle Spence, William Tonks and others. "
-Jeff Clark, STOMP AND STAMMER, Sept. 5, 2011
"Ferrelle's is one the most distinctive voices on the scene these days.....Hide the World showcases his always evolving musical sensibilities, and has a little something for everyone."
-BRENT FLEURY, THE BOLD LIFE, Sept 28, 2011
"Athens musician and songsmith Dodd Ferrelle charges up his dark Americana with a generous influx of rock and power-pop electricity on his new platter, Lonely Parades. Though his steady Tinfoil Stars backing band is absent this time around, it’s a full, robust recording, boasting performances from some of Athens’ best musicians, including Kyle Spence, Claire Campbell, William Tonks, David Barbe and John Neff. Out now on Atlanta label Two Sheds, the album stands as Ferrelle’s strongest batch of songs to date."
-Jeff Clark, STOMP AND STAMMER, April 6, 2009
"Lately Georgia has undergone one of its periodic groundswells of talent, and Dodd Ferrelle factors significantly in that wave. From his early days with Me’an Mills through his recent band projects with the now-defunct Tin Foil Stars, Ferrelle has always been able to channel and harness
as deftly as he can Robin Zander. Lonely Parades finds him divesting himself of a backing band to revisit some of the
power-pop glories of his acclaimed A Carriage on the Hill. Dave Barbe mans the boards, adding burnish to 11 of the best pop tunes you’ve missed for far too long. The band features the usual suspects from the Athens roots scene, Will Tonks (BloodKin) and John Neff (Drive By Truckers) to name a few, who add significant, yet unobtrusive contributions to make Lonely Parades Ferrelle’s finest record yet."
Rob Browning-POP MATTERS- September 17, 2009
"Americana with attitude, vision, and plenty of gummy pop harmonies to shake a stick at. Nice formula that sounds like what would happen if Springsteen had decided to explore the indie route."
J-Sin- SMOTHER ONLINE, August 5, 2009
"... with this, the third album he's produced under his own aegis, Ferrelle ups the ante and makes a solid play for solo stardom. Through a mix of atmospheric arrangements and stark yet emotive vocals, he creates a vibrant melodic tapestry that grabs immediate attention. Ferrelle's got great potential to become a breakout sensation and Lonely Parades reveals his ability to project an indelible presence."
Lee Zimmerman -BLURT, July 15, 2009
"Lonely Parades is a passionate, heartfelt CD filled with interesting, engaging songs. Ferrelle marches to his own drum even as he reflects his influences. His songs are unique slices of Americana with enough depth to call for repeated listening. Recommended."
Don Sechelski- MUSEMUSE.COM, June 23, 2009
"Dodd Ferrelle sounds a bit like Steve Earle, but his music is much more eclectically raucous and tuned to a pop sense. Basically, we're talking about well-crafted songs bashed out with a bit of twang. Ferrelle presents his music with style and passion, and that makes this album a real treat."
Jon Woley- AIDING & ABETTING, reviewed in issue #308, June 2009
"Technically, one supposes that Dodd Ferrelle is a singer/songwriter; he's obviously spent some time getting his heartfelt lyrics just-so. Yet the eleven songs on his latest Lonely Parades can be enjoyed even if the lyrics are ignored; he's a rocker in the proud tradition. The album is a consistently fine listen, and it's littered with real gems. "I Can't Wait" is a near-perfect synthesis of everything that makes pop music great. This is an album that deserves a wide listen. Recommended."
