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

"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
