“… a thing of gentle and radian wonder, a psycho-geographical diary of the Texas Hill Country that he now calls home. In many ways, Time The Teacher feels ageless, its defining characteristics being soft piano, muted horns and gospel harmonies, all moving along with the same unhurried serenity as DeCicca’s voice.” Uncut - Americana Album of The Month (MARCH, 2018)
