“Not since Bruce Springsteen’s Nebraska has a concept album been more stirring or truthful. Lonestar Hitchhiker calls to mind a sense of the down-trodden romantic America that has laid in torpor since the Beat Generation. DiLego’s surprisingly twangy voice brings a heartfelt realism to his incredibly diverse soundscapes and his songs demand to be listened to.” / NORTHEAST PERFORMER
“Gutsy rock-n-roll with a selfreliant drive, DiLego’s music comforts the lonely nomad in us all.” / HEAR MUSIC
“Inspired by a rather innocent New York City subway conversation, Don DiLego spent months travelling along Route 66 to discover different people and their stories. The end product is an Americana, trip-hop account that is as intriguing as it is quirky. Most of the album lends itself to roots rock in the vein of Wilco. The ’60s pop in “Nicotine Prom Queen” and the nomadic balladry of “Border Song” make the record surpass possible expectations. / ALL-MUSIC GUIDE, PICK!
