about

"Head Sparrow Shawn Jones is a brainy songwriter with a gift for wordplay, unexpected rhymes, and occasionally startling imagery " --Pitchfork

"Through intensely intricate chamber folk arrangements, the Lovely Sparrows gesture toward Sufjan Stevens’ balance of orchestral grandeur and meditative calm, while Jones nasally swooning pop lifted vocals recall Jeff Mangum of Neutral Milk Hotel" --Texas Music Monthly

"The Lovely Sparrows are everything from piano and mandolin to handclaps and snaps to get their vision out on tape, and the result is inspiring." --You Ain't No Picasso

"Top-notch, tastefully polished indie-pop might not be the first thing that springs to mind when you think of the hip little oasis that is Austin; The Lovely Sparrows are working to change this" --Harp

"[Shawn Jones'] thoughtful observations about the fiery - yet oftentimes suppressed - manner in which we wrestle with our emotions is Cat Stevens-y and blissfully rakish" --Daytrotter
