“This may be one of the year’s best - he’s a vivid, expressive artist.”  - Americana Highways 

“Nothing may be normal in 2021, but ‘Normal Isn’t Normal Anymore’ offsets Abernethy’s doom and gloom with pure joy...”   - No Depression 

“Clairon vocals, masterly guitar playing...the complete creative and artistic package.”   - Looking Through The Lense 

“Impressive guitar-picking is an attraction in itself, and Mr. Abernethy proves an adept, vocal interpreter…”  - The Wall Street Journal 

“Such a gifted writer and talented guitarist...his are not only well-crafted songs; they are important, provocative messages that need to be shared.”  - Country Standard Time 

"Abernethy turned the relatively obscure early Dylan song about racial injustice into a tour-de-force, complete with a focused vocal delivery, tight and percussive rhythm, fiery guitar licks and solid harmonica playing." - American Songwriter on "Oxford Town"

“His guitar playing evokes comparisons to such luminaries as Leo Kottke, John Fahey, and Tommy Emmanuel."   - Pop Matters
