“Masterful enough to become a classic of the genre.” – The Brag (★★★★)
“Replete with crisp banjo rolls, liberal solo breaks for

Mustered Courage keep the momentum at a fever pitch with the release of their third long-player White Lies & Melodies (Lost Highway). Their most ambitious release to date, the album pushes the boundaries of what a progressive folk-rock album can be. The result is an eclectic 12-track album that covers everything from

With White Lies & Melodies, Mustered Courage prove that they “have a knack for tempering the rough and raw roots edges of their twang foundation with hooky-as-hell melodies and rich harmonies. Bill Monroe would be proud of his Aussie brethren-in-arms.”
