Album Review - Home: "With a Woodie Guthrie working-man’s mentality, Jason Bancroft and the Wealthy Beggars have carved a nice little place for themselves in the Texas folk scene the past few years. With the band’s new record “Home,” there’s less of the gruff-growl Chuck Ragan vocal styling, and a more of Bruce Springsteen sound from the mouth of Jason Bancroft." Mike Damante, Houston Chron.com


"Gritty yet soulful, Jason Bancroft and the Wealthy Beggars offer up working class epics that are a bit punk, a bit folk and 100% awe-inspiring" JT Habersaat, Altercation Press


"Americana meets folky wanderer that has that Chuck Ragan kind of vibe, and they're known to put on a pretty great live show" David Garrick, Free Press Houston


Album review - This Machine: “the band is about equal parts Billy Bragg and Woody Guthrie. If Americana and sing-along folk is your thing, ‘This Machine’ is a nice representation of one of Houston’s top folk-rock acts.’ This Machine’ has enough gruff to keep the punkers’ attention and plenty of folk chops to keep traditionalists happy.” Mike Damante,Houston Chron.com
