“His licks ranged from mellifluous to the kind of blues that could turn Jack White's head from 1,000 feet.” - SPIN
“...a warm and folky record that harks back to the days when music felt intimate and genuine and never over-produced.” - Nylon Guys
“...I can't resist its charms...for proof, listen to the best song on the album...it's an irresistibly sad ballad called "Lost in the Light", in which his voice and his guitar playing merge with a lush beauty.” – NPR Fresh Air
