 “Kasey Rausch is the most prominent member of a new generation of dedicated folk musicians in Kansas City.” – KCUR 89.3 FM  2014

“Guitar in Hand puts Rausch at the front of the local folk scene. The arrangements are both elaborate and elemental; if the swooning fiddle on “Sweet Missouri” doesn’t inspire some love for your home state, nothing will. And Rausch’s voice settles easily around spirited bluegrass (“Moonshiner’s Dream”) and twangy country (“My Piney Wood Home”), showing the influence of both Alison Krauss and Emmylou Harris as well as a new maturity. Hers is a voice you trust to tell the truth, a voice you can hear singing lullabies, a shield that protects against the darkness.  It’s a long way from working retail to an album like Guitar in Hand. Rausch knows that.” – Natalie Gallagher, The Pitch Kansas City  2014

“Guitar in Hand” is an album about place: where you’re from and where your heart belongs. It’s also a confirmation that Rausch is back where she belongs — making music. Because that’s obviously where her heart is.” — Tim Finn, The Kansas City Star  2014

“Received My CD and listened to it. Excellent Work!!!!!!!!.. Also what an excellent group of musicians You have gathered around You. I really like the steel guitar work.”  — Paul (Kickstarter Backer)  2014
