Critics have compared him to great acoustic guitar mavens such as Dave Matthews and John Mayer. stated, “Joel Sprayberry is an acoustic wild man who could hold his own playing dueling guitars with any of the current top-selling acoustic artists. But unlike many guitar-intensive artists, Sprayberry has put as much thought and care into crafting his lyrics as he has into creating his finger-flying licks. With the skill of an engaging storyteller/poet, he opens up worlds with his words. ”
His artistic dedication and uniqueness are two qualities that make listening to Sprayberry a memorable moment. “If I write a song that sounds even remotely like something I've heard before, I’ll throw it out,” says Sprayberry. “All my lyrics have something to say and I feel music crosses lines of communication further than any other form of art. I want all my words to be important and clear, but in a respected style. I want my style to be broad enough so that everyone who experiences a show will have a good time.”
