“Ian Felice is the only songwriter I am and will ever be jealous of. Since encountering his music fifteen or so years ago he has changed my life and art in profound ways. Inspired is not the word. No justice in that. He has broken and mended my heart a thousand times over. There is not a lot left I believe in. Just deflated beach balls in the sand. But Ian's poetry hides me in a safehouse of understanding. He is a wellspring of what is the best of the human heart. Terrifying and life affirming in one miraculous mess. There is an active shooter. I am hiding under my desk but there is a rainbow outside the window. That's Ian. " 

—CONOR OBERST, of Bright Eyes 

“Think: The Maysles and Salesman. Think: Frank Stanford and The Singing Knives. Think:  Sara Ogan Gunning singing the boatman and his dead passengers across that River Styx.  Now call the river ‘U.S.’ Silver coin to pass. The Moon Over Edgar is a book for anyone living in this upside-down wealth we call America, looking for a way to be right side up. On his records, Ian Felice is our screaming balladeer of sanity. Here he whispers the truth, and somehow I feel more shaken.”  

—REBECCA GAYLE HOWELL, author of American Purgatory
