Additional Information

(CD Release Show)
"..a Brooklyn outfit that originally set out to play bluegrass-style covers of punk tunes, celebrates its new one, Thanks Anyway, which pairs low-key chamber-folk with smart, cutting lyrics about life and love in contemporary Gotham." - TIME OUT

 
Osei Essed writes, and sings the songs between.
 
"Food Will Win the War explores a space largely unexplored even in Brooklyn's dense music scene. There's a delicate balance in this music between the fun of surrealist fantasy and the acceptance of life's realities." -Mike Levine, The Deli Magazine

"Food Will Win the War is the BK band led by Rob Ward, a whispery-voiced singer-songwriter with an appealingly moody intellectual streak.." -Hank Shteamer, Time Out New York
