James Krueger has been called a true voice of the mountains. Finding inspiration in his native north eastern United States and performing what he calls "new folk with roots" (guitar, mandolin, accordion, etc.), Krueger "brings heartfelt appreciation to songs that celebrate the passing of the seasons and the sound of rain on a windowsill. But here are songs that probe beneath the surface of seemingly simple topics." (Rambles Magazine)
A Review in the Chronogram, a US periodical, said "For the same reason we live in the [Catskill Mountains], this CD is something you'll put on and won't take off. The music and lyrics on Fine reflect a deep, healthy connection with nature."
Another review in Rambles, an on-line cultural arts magazine, said that "Fine is a wonderful blend of Krueger's delicate voice and a dazzling array of instruments. The album is smooth and rich like coffee with cream. If you want a solid musical performance that perfectly blends instruments with vocals, Fine will certainly suffice."
