Media have been supportive of Lotus Crush and Rabbit Hole with Yahoo! Music lauding McDermott’s “perfect set of pipes,” and ARTISTdirect raving “…(McDermott is) still rocking our world with his pitch perfect and rich voice…” Starpulse said “…even though Terry and his fellow bandmates have been turning out good music for a long time, well before any sort of TV attention, Rabbit Hole may be their best work yet.” Influential site Buzzbands LA stated, “The propulsive song ‘Hearts and Minds’ has urgency…” And, AXS said about the track: “Their combination of driving rock plus compelling lyrics about subjects like the one that spawned ‘Hearts and Minds’ is what makes them a rock band on the rise, again.”

Lotus Crush’s history began on the road in 2006 when Driveblind toured Europe with Candlebox (Styles and Mattrey are recent additions to the band). While on tour, the artists shared a love of seminal British bands such as The Verve, Pink Floyd and Led Zeppelin and sowed what would be the seeds of a long-lasting relationship. These common influences spurred their creative processes, and they went on to release their first project together, Half Light Morning in 2011. After getting back together for what they thought was a single reunion show in 2014, the creative gears clicked, the hiatus ended and Lotus Crush was back.
