"Keziah and his BAND Delux Motel come out of AUSTIN, TEXAS., with a real-deal, revved-up country sound Keziah describes as "urban hillbilly." The singer, songwriter and guitarist opened ears earlier this year with his "Working Songs for the Drinking Class" CD. Unlike too many country rockers who sing about things they believe will appeal to listeners, Keziah writes and sings about hard living and real life, from personal experience, and those songs, such as "Ball and Chain" and "I Can't Stop," appeal to those who also have done some living."
The San Antonio Current
"Honky-tonk perfectionist Wink Keziah offers pure genius on his new CD, Working Songs For The Drinking Class..."
"On his latest release, Wink Keziah, with support from his band Delux Motel, proves not only that he has mastered a variety of musical styles, but also that he understands everyday life in rural America."
No Depression Magazine
"Ten songs’ worth of honky tonkin’ that Waylon, Willie and Tompall would give their outlaw country stamps of approval to, Working Songs for the Drinking Class is the purest example of truth-in-titling you’re likely to encounter all year."
Stomp & Stammer Magazine
"Working Songs for the Drinking Class is a masterful piece of mannerist honky-tonk, complete with slightly off-kilter mini-explosions of ‘70s riffage that frame Keziah's songs perfectly."
The Knoxville Voice
" Wink Keziah plays the pure, hardscrabble country-tinged rock that Parsons pioneered way back when, and that others including that state's own Ryan Adams continue to perfect. It's rock 'n' roll with a crying pedal steel guitar and songs about the hard life and honky-tonk dreams of the blue collar Joe."
