Cheers to Solitude
Top 40 Album on Americana Radio
Top 10 on the Alt-Country Specialty Chart
"The Two Tracks avoid many of the cliches and gimmicks that have grown common in the Americana world while still championing a natural, Earth-grown sound. In this regard, The Two Tracks are almost like an embodiment of what acoustic music is all about. To hear an acoustic quartet reach a level of dynamic and thematic intensity like The Two Tracks do is an immeasurably rewarding experience. It’s pure musicianship, it’s pure excellence, it’s pure Americana."
- AMERICAN SONGWRITER
"Renown for soaring vocal harmonies and adept musicianship. Cheers to Solitude maintains the group’s tradition for thoughtful, literate songwriting and engaging vocals."
“Great vocals, strong lyrics, and glorious harmonies. More than anything, though, it's the sheer joy of making music that comes through."
- GLIDE MAGAZINE
"Cheers to Solitude encapsulates the soul of roots music, delivered with a wide-open groove. The Two Tracks songs are gentle, thoughtful, ruminations on life.”
"A brilliant, 10-song quasi-country album that unapologetically explores meaningful themes that mainstream Nashville eschewed long ago...warrants serious consideration for "best of 2020" critics lists."
- THE BOZONE
"We appreciate acts like this that are without a doubt gifted at both songwriting and musicianship. Theirs is a rare gift; to draw listeners in like family, while providing hope in the midst of such uncertainty.”
- EAR TO THE GROUND MUSIC
“One of those consummate Americana albums...the songs just roll along with melodies dovetailing into sublime playing, wonderful harmonies and strong songwriting. There’s a direct line from the songwriters to the listeners with just the right amount of production and texture to make them dance on the surface and slide deep into the soul."
"The Two Track's songs speak to our emotions, leaving us feeling good inside."
“The stories of Cheers to Solitude are an umbrella, sheltering a humanity weathering the same storms, feeling the same pain, and holding on to the same rush of joy.”
- THE ALTERNATE ROOT
The Two Tracks (2016)
"Winner of Wyoming Public Radio's Best Album of 2016, “Their eponymous debut album finds them creating an instant connection. Julie Szewc, an effusive vocalist, turns nearly every song into a moment worth savouring...in truth there’s not a single offering here that doesn’t engage the listener practically from the get go.”
- No Depression
Postcard Town (2017)
"With “Postcard Town,” The Two Tracks reach down into our collective souls with a batch of well-crafted songs that are delivered from a storyteller’s point of view, and the musicianship and harmonies are as sweet as honey in the rock."
- Nashville Blues Society
