Feedback - Into The Bottomlands:
 - “A poet with a guitar, Thomas Hine takes a slice of blues and adds a dash of folk to make a true Americana pie. Hine combines introspective lyrics and ear-friendly musical composition for a unique, heartfelt convert. He's got a Bob Dylan mind and an Andrew Bird ear; it's a winning combination.” Boulder Daily Camera

 - "Thank you very much for sending me your new cd Into the Bottomlands.  This week I've included the title song on my playlist.  It took me several spins to apreciate the cd as a whole, but now I'm hooked! Seperately the songs crept under my skin and into my soul.  Thank you for this experience." Peter van Zeijl, The Netherlands
 - "I write about the music, the good feeling and spirit I can feel thoughout the album...your voice is really perfect for such an creates kind of an intimacy , the perfect album for an after 9pm listening are really unique and indispensable on the musical landcape play a music for people who have got something between the two ears... you are an excellent singer songwriter ...merci for these new recordings ..." Mike Penard, Radio ISA France
 - "I'm glad to know you appreciated I'm playing "Into the bottomlands" in my radio show of American roots music. It is even better than your previous CD and I really enjoy it a lot and in fact I shall surely play it again and again in the next weeks. Please stay in touch and let me know about your future plans.
