"Yerkey's album 'Confidence, Man' has been described as "a lost classic waiting to be rediscovered by fans of Richard Buckner and Townes Van Zandt." 
Indy Week

"Other critics have praised the album's tracks "Cocksucking Blonde" and "Maker's Mark," and have written that its music depicts the gritty aspect of life in San Francisco."

Los Angeles Times

"The "Elvis Costello of country."


"Barroom laments, howled prayers and fiery indictments that burned with the intensity of a real person with real soul."

San Francisco Chronicle

"His CD 'Up From Mo's' is solo voice, acoustic guitar and harmonica, fusing country, jazz, folk and blues, rich storytelling and the eccentric West-Virginia-born baritone singing tales of railroad workers, robber barons, short pants, love, despair, Algiers and lighthouse keeping."
