Praise for Wind:
“You can expect to be emotionally attached to this EP.” Roots Music Magazine
“Hazelnuts get ready to enjoy this ABSOLUTELY BRILLIANT piece of artistry. I can honestly say this EP hits every ounce of emotions. There is something so pure about this album. Production = FANTASTIC … Lyrically = SUPERB … Instrumentally = STELLAR.” 695 The Rock Radio
“Doing any job for 25 years is pretty impressive; maintaining a successful band in a fickle music industry for that long is near-miraculous. The band has managed to flourish as an independent act without a major label, releasing albums on its own Croakin’ Poets label and making waves on the country charts with its newest EP's, without significantly changing its sound to fit a format.” Greenville Journal
“Sister Hazel's second of four EP's, Wind, captures the bands adventurous spirit. There’s a song for every emotion or experience. One of the band’s strongest skills is the ability to pull you into their story and make it yours, too. Sister Hazel surpasses the expectations on this EP.” Music Update Central
