""Existence" Album Review, CANdYRAT Records, 2008"

"Dufour has a subtle and effortless way of transitioning his compositions in a few short seconds from energetic and uplifting to a soulful warm nostalgia. While melodic and accessible to any listener, his music is at the same time extremely complex both texturally and harmonically. Dufour is clearly a musician who deeply understands the nature of the guitar." - Timothy Smith, Minor 7th Webzine

"International Guitar Night Concert, Glasgow, Scotland, October 4th, 2007"

The youthful Dufour's millions of views on YouTube are easily understood. His style packs a rock band's punch behind extraordinary fluency and features highly effective flamenco-like percussion and deftly reflective melodies as well as urgent, nimble picking." - Rob Adams, The Herald, October 16th, 2007, Glasgow, Scotland

""Existence" Album Review, 2008"

"The 12-cut Existence is a wonderland of fingerpicking and highly intricate compositions soothing the soul as they engage the mind. Dufours's riffs are incredible, never-ending, and at times seemingly impossible for human fingers to pull off." - Mark S. Tucker Folk and Acoustic Music Exchange 2008
