"Rebecca Rego and The Trainmen are a force to be reckoned with. Lay These Weapons Down demonstrates impressive range, convincingly spanning several genres. All the while, the album remains cohesive and congruent. An excellent album, it's all there, composed and performed expertly."
"Rego has molded the rugged tones of Heartless Bastards with the harmonies of Neko Case & Grace Potter..........The trajectory of songs summons a fruitful creative growth for Rego, making Speaking of Witches easily one of 2019’s top new listens."
“Could I Have Loved You Better” is a song, which would do Nina Simone proud.......Musically, Rebecca Rego and the Trainmen expand on their indie folk foundation"
