“Phil Lomac's 'Northern Cities Southern Stars' delivers a poetic reflection on modern life through an acquiescent but hopeful voice. A beautiful piece that further adds to that indefinable realm of Americana.”


-Jon C. Ireson,

“His songs shine with a certain clarity of thought and expression. Solid songwriting and arrangements are matched to lyrics that have power and genuine depth. Phil’s songs always have a backbone. Dig a little deeper and there is always a little more underneath.”


-Indie Darkroom


"Phil Lomac has produced a strong album, one that reflects persuasive melodies, precise instrumentation and coherent rhythms. Northern Cities Southern Stars is worth your time; it’s engaging and unique enough that you’ll enjoy it."


-Randy Radic, Huffington Post


"Hypnotic vocals with southern charm and an idiosyncratic dose of mystery come in abundance throughout the latest release, ‘Northern Cities Southern Stars’, by Charlotte (NC) artist, Phil Lomac"


-Jessica Golich,

"With a deceptively simple approach to the otherwise bygone era of Gainesville, Florida rock Phil Lomac is quite an astute student of Americana (despite a Berlin, Germany upbringing.) Northern Cities Southern Stars, Lomac’s third release, is anything but an elementary survey of Americana. A warm-hearted pastiche of Petty, Farrar, and anything described as banjo pluckin’ music, Lomac provides a laid-back response to easy timing music."

-Jake Tully, Moxipop

"Northern Cities Southern Stars is a sonic gut-punch of sheer alternative rock, indie pop, and rootsy folk goodness all wrapped into one."

-Jonathan Frahm, for folk's fake
