No Depression

CD Review - Charlie Mosbrook - Something To Believe:
"There’s a familiar comfortable feeling that comes over you when you listen to the music of Charlie Mosbrook.

The guy has a rich, worldly voice that sounds like it was broken in slowly, like a well-loved instrument."

Cd Review- Something To Believe :"Upon hearing “Something to Believe” by singer-songwriter Charlie Mosbrook, I was struck by the confident yet melodic sound of his singing voice.
That voice reminds me of similarly masculine folk voices of the past, such as Kris Kristofferson, Jim Croce and Gordon Lightfoot."

1/1/13 Charlie Mosbrook's open-mic nights showcase Heights talent  -by Jim Henke
the music on the album “celebrates Charlie Mosbrook’s unwavering determination to overcome adversity.”
At Thursday evening's show, the very soft-spoken musician held those two-dozen men, women, and children entranced as he played song after beautiful song.... it was evident that there had been a majorly cosmic connection between Mosbrook and us."

Buzzard Tracks: Northeast Ohio Music News and Review
"A Time Long Gone is an excellent album, finely conceived and gorgeously sung. 
The more I played it, the more I enjoyed it. I have to warn you, there are some tearjerkers here, and songs that will stick with you long beyond the playing.
Mosbrook shows himself, once again, to be a remarkable songwriter."

"The musicianship and singing on the album is uniformly excellent, the various folks helping Mosbrook doing a fine job all around.

July 2004 CD Review- Nothing is Clear
"Charlie Mosbrook has hosted open mics and performed his soft-spoken acoustic music with local acts for the past 16 years. Over that time, he's recorded five albums and has had the opportunity to perform with the likes of Jewel and Big Head Todd and the Monsters. His latest album, Nothing is Clear, again features his warm delivery. Songs like Nothing but You and Loveand Disappointment tell h eartfelt stories and are backed with quiet acoustic melodies, uplifting songs such as Feed My Soul and Rearrange the Focus deliver a much-needed dose of energy to the album. Instrumental songs such as The Walk Home and Message are also highlights"
