DON'T FOLKS JUST SAY THE NICEST THINGS?

“Power’s songs are strong and authentic...” - British Blues Connection

"Arguably the best harmonica player in Texas."- Ron D'Argenio, Producer/Owner Hoodoo Recording

“..reminiscent of the glory days of  the  Byrds, the Burritos, and the early Eagles - yet grounded in sounds that purists and Buddy Holly fans could easily identify  with...."

- Alan Rockman, L.A. music columnist. 

 

"I'm making it my mission in life to get these songs heard." - John David, Berry Hill Studios, Berry Hill, UK

 

" ‘Most Danceable’:  Of hundreds of versions, Power’s rendition is one of my short-list favorites; as Melissa Swingle of the Moaners put it, 'It’s utterly inappropriate for the subject matter and, at the same time, absolutely perfect.'"

- "Chasing the Rising Sun" , a history of "House of the Rising Sun"  - Ted Anthony (Associated Press) 

 

"... Power's colourful life oozes from all the songs, where his Tom Russell type delivery meets Willie Nelson with a touch of Waylon.
It's all good stuff.... he manages to combine straight ahead rock with some excellent ballads."

- Americana UK 

 

"You bastard!  It was you!"

-Tom Jones
