AllMusic Review by

Every Place Is Home is an album of gentle lullabies and acoustic ditties, maintained delicately by singer/songwriter Justin Vollmar. His vocals sound akin to a softer, passive version of Bright Eyes' Conor Oberst. They're plainly delivered, but the tone is simple and doesn't overemphasize anything. That being said, it's easy to understand all of his lyrics and follow along with the stories that Vollmar tells. Inserting the harmonica into some tracks makes for some added, classy diversity that gives the songs a down-home feeling instead of an otherwise somber tone. More of said diversity would have been nice, as the album can drag a little bit, but for the most part, it is a good representation of the independent-minded singer/songwriter.
