"All That You Need To Hook People With"

“An opening slide guitar number set the tone for a set that was stepped in blues and folk, including a take of "Goodnight Irene." The Phonogarde piled some serious vocal gymnastics onto solid guitar work, proving unafraid to push the voice to a scream, draw it in to a whisper, or twist it to suit the song. It was the kind of dynamic performance that you need to hook people with a solo opening set.”
- Jeremy Ethridge - Online Independent

"Blues Sound"

“(The Phonogarde) ... offered a soulful contemporary blues sound reminiscent of the likes of Ben Harper and Jeff Buckley. His extremely evocative and personal set was almost entirely comprised of original material that offered fantastic vocal range and tambour coupled with guitar work that was sensitive and intricate yet raw and abrasive. He finished his set off with a few songs played on a makeshift lap steel guitar that he fashioned out of ‘an old beater out of the basement’ and a piece of copper pipe.” - Vox Magazine
