"A cottony haze of AM radio memories informed Michael Simone's songwriting on All The Way Home, and it comes through in subtle ways amid these ten Neil Young and outlaw country inspired set of tracks.  Recorded at a house on Long Island just off the bay of the North Fork, Ocean Carolina's breakthrough is saturated with reverby harmonica, guitars and pedal steel.  "Love Don’t You Haunt Me" is a sweet ballad, with sepia tinged fiddles weaving between the guitars and steel, "I Might Break" is slow and steady handed, Simone's soulful voice drifting above the shuffling snares.  A mighty lineup of musicians appear on All The Way Home, including Whiskeytown's Caitlin Cary on backing vocals and fiddle and The Connells Peele Wimberley on drums." - The Coalition of Independent Music Stores (CIMS) www.cimsmusic.com

"Carolina by way of Brooklyn.  Outlaw country by way of new wave and classic rock." – Dept. of Record Stores (DORS) www.deptofrecordstores.com

"In the vein of The Cowboy Junkies and Tarnation this is a superb cache of spartan, atmospheric melodies lurking behind Michael Simone's soulfully pining vocals." - Baron Lane, Editor In Chief of Twangnation.com and Official GRAMMYs blogger for the Americana/Folk genre at Grammy.com

"From the moment the first musical swell ushers in warm guitar and harmonica on "Don't Break Your Promise" to the last haunting notes of the guitar solo on "This Time," Ocean Carolina's debut is a stunning body of work.  All The Way Home fits in with the best alt-country music being made right now, and is a great companion piece to records like Ryan Adams's Ashes and Fire and Jason Isbell's Southeastern." - Katie Darby Mullins (www.katiedarbyrecommends.com)
