– “I was completely blown away by the fire and passion About A Mile pours into their music and moved to tears by how raw, real and transparent they are willing to be. No doubt hearts will be moved and lives will be touched after an encounter with any one of their songs.” – Brandi Lanai, KSGN, Riverside

– “I haven’t seen this kind of passion from an artist in a while; the transparency in their stories and songs is incredible…” – Theresa Ross, WTRJ, Jacksonville

– “The guys are talented musician who have a ministry that they want to share. I love their single ‘Satisfied.’ They definitely have my attention and I’m excited to see what’s in store for them.” – Jeremy Henry, WJQK, Grand Rapids
