"Ranch\ House is self-described as a “Hill-Country-Indie-Folk-Rock outfit from San Antonio”. It is led by S. Brady Dietert, who writes most of the songs, sings lead, and plays guitar and harmonica with Dylan Ilseng on bass and Matt Carrell on drums. Dietert seems to start his songwriting by laying out a lively little rhythm riff that he uses as a canvas for his poetic imagery. The lyrics often take off in unexpected directions following strategically placed lines that take the listener on an interesting journey."

"The tattered, Kleenex-thin shirt of a band that he wears around his Redwood frame fits him to a T. Like no other local artist that I have heard (he’s an artist in a town full of hobbyists), Dietert officiates the matrimony of Northwestern indie folk rock with Texas chicken stranglin’, bonfire-buildin’, BBgun-shootin’ music like a parson who has overseen the union of more than one jig-sawed couple. His record What Maps Don’t Show is one of the few local records I listen to in my free time. There are few S.A. artists that I feel comfortable saying have one issue — media support — standing between them and a full-time money-making music gig, Dietert is one such artist."
