"Humble Troubadour"

It's high time everyone heard about that humble troubadour Verlon Thompson. He's a fantastic guitar picker and songwriter whose only career shortcoming is that he performs in Guy Clark's enormous shadow. - Lonely Goat Magazine

"Verlon at Newport Folk Fest"

(At the Newport Folk Festival 2009)...Verlon was great! Seriously. Nobody at the festival played guitar like him. His song "Everywhere...Yet" stunned the crowd and "Joe Walker's Mare" was country storytelling at it's best. Did I mention he could play guitar? Really...Thompson was electrifying. - Boston Music Review
