".....with the group’s latest album, “Everyone Everywhere,” Scotchie & Co. have harnessed the eternal hope and constant growing pains of America — a country still trying to figure itself out with a mirror currently placed firmly in front of itself." - Garret Woodward, Smoky Mountain News. 

"Even though the Asheville, North Carolina resident Andrew Scotchie isn’t even 30 yet, he plays like an old soul on this well executed EP where The River Rats help illuminate a charming brand of retro-rock where there’s no shortage of political/social wordplay." -Take Effect Reviews

"The band creates tight, concise, funky-but-riff-happy songs that are heavy on catchy hooks and singalong choruses."

- Vincent Harris, Greenville SC Journal

"The work’s prescient nature has proved so startling that it even prompted one fan in Boise, Idaho to ask the Asheville-based artist if he’d consulted a crystal ball."

Edwin Arnaudin, Mountain Xpress
