Mesmerizing duo weaves male/ female vocal harmonies with lush, textural instrumentation. "Grateful exemplifies the low-key power of haunting melody buttressed with expansive harmony, the satisfaction of adroit wordplay entwined with skillfully understated musicianship." Robert Burke Warren, Chronogram Magazine. "The finest country/folk/rock harmonies since the Everly Brothers.", Richard Cuccaro, Acoustic Live Magazine." "Songcraft and soul-filling vocals of sterling quality." Tom Staudter, The Gazette. "The Things We Keep, like its tuneful predecessor, 2002's Out of Time, is an engaging amalgam of harmony vocals, tasty folk rock, and, most importantly, intelligent and astute songwriting that fully realizes that whatever the two songwriters are living through, most of their audience has also experienced. Unlike many contemporaries, the duo and its producer-guitarist, Billy Masters, know not to overproduce the music, and instead let the songs speak not only for themselves but to Open Book's deservedly growing audience."
