Wall Street Journal:

Entertainment Weekly:
Online musical sleuths were able to identify the voice behind the track, 
called “The Only Thing Worth Fighting For,” as singer-songwriter Lera Lynn. But even hardcore devotees of the show were probably surprised to see Lynn appear on camera in the season premiere as the hollow-eyed bar singer who performs for Ray (Colin Farrell) and Frank (Vince Vaughn).  - Entertainment Weekly - by Kevin Sullivan

American Songwriter:
Lynn scored a big break recently when T Bone Burnett asked her to help compose and record the theme song for Season 2 of True Detective, which premiered last night on HBO.  - American Songwriter

Rolling Stone's Top 40 Country Albums of 2014:
33. Lera Lynn: The Avenues "It takes a truly able voice to drop a lead single with barely any words in the chorus, but Lera Lynn — with her dreamlike wordplay, quirky metaphors and fantastically sultry tone — can do just that... And what a voice it is."

American Songwriter Top 50 Albums of 2014:
14. Lera Lynn: The Avenues "... her sultry alto is swathed in moony steel guitar and the ever-so-gentle swinging and sighing of a countrified jazz club combo.  What she's done is spin solitary confessions into an immersive, sensual experience, which is no small feat."
