“The authentically rendered Southern rock and blues on Safe Haven‘s debut Sermon For No One is credited to 10 musicians, led by songwriter Patrick Lyons. There’s an appealing mix of fiddles, guitars, pedal steel, and harmonica across the nine tracks. The romantic ‘Colorado Moon’ has a homespun feel, while the shuffling honkytonk of ‘Leave Me Where I Want To Be’ evokes Mungo Jerry’s ‘In The Summertime.’ Safe Haven also impresses with the traditional ‘Going To Germany’ and cuts loose behind the spiritual imagery of ‘Eternal Farm.’”
