Review in Nashville Music Guide
Three guys, Ed Cain, Bronson Herrmuth and Michael Mason Bromley, bring their combined musical talents together to bring you a taste of honey in pure musical form with this CD sampler of four original tunes by Bromley with a Roger Miller classic thrown in for your pleasure. The title track is an excellent example of a classic to be bluesy country ballad. This is a must have from three of the top musicians in Music City. It'll have you pining for more. You can find it on the web at www.crowding50.com. - - - 2009 by Brad Fischer

CD Review in 5 Star Productions
Crowding 50 - Dickson County Line
This is a beautiful EP of roots music. From the opening track "What We Believe In" to the end, there are no holes. Acoustic instruments. Subtle sounds. Everything is perfectly placed around Michael Mason Bromley's usual pinpoint clarity in voice. Real instruments with careful use of microphones so that we would hear just the right warm sound. A beautiful produced work by Bronson Herrmuth. Crowding 50 does what they do best. The compositions are distinctly different, expertly-crafted and get to the real core. The human heart. Dickson County Line crosses that boundary and creates music that is vividly glorious and honest. In short, human. - - - 2009 by Miles Patrick Yohnke - 5 Star Productions

CD Review by Patrick Hazell
Crowding 50s' CD, "Dickson County Line" is a strong selection of four songs written by guitarist/vocalist, Michael Mason Bromley, and a fifth song, the legendary Roger Miller's "King Of The Road." Mason's songwriting is as strong as it comes--direct and melodic with great hook lines and no mincing of words. Instrumentally it is all straight ahead chops-- no effected production frills and loops, just Mason's vocals with acoustic guitar, rock solid upright bass playing by Ed Cain, and some very tasty harmonica playing by Bronson Herrmuth.

I love and prefer the sound of acoustic bass, and it's a pleasure to hear it on these songs. But, when it comes to harmonica, I am generally skeptical because is rare to find tasteful and inventive harp playing these days. Far too often the listener is assaulted by someone trying to show off his or her instrumental speed while playing one cliched riff after another at break-neck speed while completely ignoring the power of space and dynamics. Not so with Herrmuth. He lays down some very fine harmonica support on these songs without sounding restrained and artificial. All budding harmonica players could learn something from Herrmuth's playing on these tracks.

My congratulations go out to Crowding 50. "Dickson County Line" makes for a very fine debut disc from this trio of veteran musicians. - - - 2009 by Patrick Hazell
