Prospect Hill finds Flemons digging deeply into ragtime, Piedmont blues, spirituals, southern folk music, string band music, jug band music, fife and drum music, and ballads idioms with showmanship and humor, reinterpreting the music to suit 21st century audiences.
“No musician in recent memory has tackled so many different idioms with such sincerity and style as Flemons, making him easily the most gifted American songster of his generation.” -Living Blues Magazine
“Flemons’s harmonica-heavy, foot-tapping folk makes for the perfect hot summer soundtrack.” -Paste Magazine
“This is interracial hoedown music, irresistibly delivered with a wink and a strut, and it sounds unlike anything else on the market today.” -Wondering Sound
“Dom Flemons satisfied an old-time craving.” -CMT Edge
“A mix of traditional and original songs that explore different moods and strains of Americana from both the head and the heart.” -Boston Globe
“The recording is warm and intimate, and if you don’t catch yourself beaming broadly as you listen you are just not paying attention. Dom Flemons’s Prospect Hill is a treasure, hopefully merely the first of many more to come.” -Sing Out! Magazine
