Baltimore City Paper
Audience of One: Odyssey Works engineers transformative experiences
"Abraham and Nate walked us upstairs to a space lit only by a few string bulbs crossing the exposed, vaulted ceiling and light pouring in through blue stained glass windows. We sat in metal folding chairs arranged in rows to face the back of the room. A couple taxidermy heads hung from the dark wooden walls, and stacks of books filled a fireplace. In a corner, blue china gathered dust on an old piano. A tortoiseshell cat prowled and mewed as Abraham explained what would happen, and what we would need to do, once Ayden arrived. With a few minutes left, we practiced the scene." — January 10, 2017

A Band Forged by Bonfire: Sweet Saro
"The restored space of Church and Company in Hampden with its warm interior glow and slight draft of cool evening air was synergetic to the character of Sweet Saro the night of the release party. Abby says “The first time I went to Church and Company, I fell in love with the space.” Church and Company isn’t primarily a music venue, “but that was my dream place of where we could do it.” The Church and Company setting also created the intimate space the band craved. It was a packed house and the crowd couldn’t have been more than five feet from the band. Still, lead singer Abby Becker asked everyone to step a little closer." — November 13, 2015,
Charm City Wed
Church & Company was featured in a Charm City Wed article highlighting a local wedding.
"We walked into this former church on Falls Road and knew *immediately* it was of our aesthetic: quirky paintings, old, old furniture, gray walls, antique taxidermy. Alex is a buff on the history of the neighborhood as well! (Turns out our church was designed by the same architect that built Church and Company over a hundred years ago!) Jacob is Italian/Irish and I am Korean/Hispanic. As a nod to my heritage, I wore a mantilla veil – a traditional Spanish veil and bright red, traditional, Korean, ceremonial shoes made for me." — January 11, 2016

Doors Open Baltimore Seeks to Discover Hidden Gems
"Church & Company’s building, which is also home to vintage boutique Hunting Ground, was designed by George Frederick, the architect behind City Hall. It served a variety of functions, including as a travel agency, until Alex Fox leased the space, tearing out walls and a drop ceiling, and chipping away layers of paint. It’s a perfect example of what can happen in many Baltimore buildings yet to be discovered, said Nathan Dennies of AIABaltimore and a friend of Fox’s." — October 19, 2015

Parlor Plays: Peter Davis’s “A Gathering” and “Bring A Shovel” By Seola Lee
"Peter Davis presents two brief family dramas, “A Gathering” and “Bring A Shovel,” separate episodes set in the same region with some recurring characters, to the warm lit parlor of Church and Company, a multipurpose venue in Hampden. He describes his production asParlor Plays, defined as “two staged short (original) plays once or twice a year,” along with monthly readings and discussions following.
