"A beautiful fusion of blues, old country and a touch Americana. Fans of the music of Ry Cooder and JJ Cale will definitely cherish this album [My Turn Now]." Keys And Chords (Belgium)

"Blues infused Americana master. 'Eargasmic' delight! If you needed an album to define the meaning of Americana then this traditional and rootsy yet somehow thoroughly modern hotpot of exquisite pickin', singing and song craft [My Turn Now] would be a strong contender to nail the definitive definition of Americana in eleven sweet songs!" The Graveyard Shift

"Sublime, no nonsense, rhythmic roots." R2
