Gary Hirstius "Down River"
Four Cats/Radionic Records FC 1126-2

Down River Front Down River Back

* Louisiana serves up more than just good Cajun food with these two releases by singer / Songwriter, Gary Hirstius. A sprinkle of Amerciana a la Tom Petty, feel good of Jimmy Buffet, and the rough and tumble bar rock of Bob Segar, Hirstius proves that good songwriting, excellent musicality and sure professional sound equal a genuine jewel. For those in need of some Southern tinged, bar jukebox, "been down this road" story telling -- check it out.
Pork Tartare - 2003
* Gary Hirstius' songwriting skills are made abundantly clear on Down River-try it, you will like it.
Joseph Irrera - OffBeat Magazine - December 2003

* Guy named Gary Hirstius opened for [Steve] Earle, no easy task when you're playing in front of a passionately loyal underground following, playing before a crowd that doesn't give a hoot about opening acts, the kind that wants to hear Their Guy and Their Guy Only. But he did it. He killed it. I've heard of this guy for years - the so-called rock-'n'-roll detective - and paid absolutely no attention to him and I am here to tell you, if you don't already know this: Gary Hirstius rocks. He's got it. Or does everybody already know that?
