A/B Trio  "Trioliloquy"  (Chronograph Records)

"'Trioliloquy' is one of a recent batch of releases on the excellent Canadian label Chronograph, it's the latest release by one of my favourite live jazz groups, A/B Trio, a consistently entertaining, varied, well played and stimulating album, an excellent follow-up to 2017's album 'Out West', highly recommended....."

- Martin Price / Fatea Magazine -


"With a melodic, yet improvised sound, this new album by the A/B Trio brings original material and a re-interpretation....."

- Patrick van de Wiele / Keys & Chords -


"Sax player Dan Davis, Josh McHan on bass and Thom Bennett on drums are the 3 members of Canadian jazz band A/B Trio, originating from Edmonton, Alberta, their 3rd album 'Trioliloquy' contains 8 fully instrumental tracks and shows guest trumpet player Kevin Turcotte excelling on a few tracks where this instrument is creating added value....."

- Valére Sampermans / Rootstime -


"With cheeky word play, thoughtful melodies and rhythmic playing, 'Trioliloquy' is sure to get your heart racing....."

- Branimir Lokner / TIme Machine Music -

Hat Check Girl  "Cold Smoke"  (Gallway Bay Music)

"I have always found the music of Hat Check Girl both challenging and rewarding in equal measure, not for them the simple love song or whimsical throw away line, rather they build their story songs from historical context or imagined characters, placed in all kinds of straitened circumstances….."

- Paul McGee / Lonesome Highway -


"'Count yourself blessed', Hat Check Girl sing, a copy of this album will go a long way to ensuring that....."

- Mike Davies / Fatea Magazine -


"Peter Gallway and Annie Gallup are performing since many years as duo Hat Check Girl, and now they released their 7th album, ‘Cold Smoke’, on which they alternate as lead vocalist in 13 songs, don’t expect anything spectacular or renewing from them anymore, but as in all previous records their quality as singer songwriters is once again strongly proven....."

Suzie Vinnick  "Shake The Love Around"  (Suzie Vinnick)

"In a blind test I doubt anyone would hear this album and guess Suzie Vinnick is Canada born and bred, but she is, and that possibly even helps her sound as cool and reverential as she does throughout this dozen quite exquisite songs. 'Shake The Love Around?'. It’s a keeper....."

- Alan Harrison / The Rocking Magpie -


"The Canadian blues and roots singer songwriter Suzie Vinnick just released a new album called 'Shake The Love Around’. On this 6th record, she once again demonstrates her variability, diversity and excellent quality as vocalist, guitarist and bass player.....”

- Eric Schuurmans / Rootstime -


"This is a joyous, funky and very good CD, a convincing singer on all styles she explores with talent, or I should say with talents, a singular vocal talent, but also a stunning instrumentalist....."

- Mike Penard / Radio I.S.A. FM -

Ted Russell Kamp  "Walkin' Shoes"  (P.O.M.O. Records)

"'Walkin' Shoes' has been like a breath of fresh air this week, creating a cracking album that criss crosses all of the strands we can think of in country music with consummate ease and skill, plus these songs are capable of sounding right at home in your local bar or on the stage of some gigantic hall in front of 10’s of thousands....."

- Alan Harrison / The Rocking Magpie -


"The album is a cheerful, insightful and inspiring ride with roots rock'n'roll, California country and the Texas and Tulsa sound that Ted has been known for years, highly recommended album!"

- Philip Verhaege / Keys & Chords -

"The title of his newest album ‘Walkin' Shoes’ can’t be more applicable to the American singer songwriter Ted Russell Kamp. During the whole year, he is traveling from his home place in Los Angeles throughout the globe to sing his songs during live shows for his fanbase. The 13 songs on this new record are vintage Ted Russell Kamp, folk ballads, country tunes and southern rock music of continuous top quality. When will this ultra sympathetic artist get the recognition that he deserves so strongly?”

- Valére Sampermans / Rootstime -

Surrender Hill  "Tore Down Fences"  (Blue Betty Records)

"Surrender Hill perform over 200 shows a year and it is clear from their sound they must a really good club act, they harmonize well, and overall, it's predictable, but in a really good way....."

- Spencer Leigh / Country Music People -


"In our review of the 3rd album ‘Tore Down Fences’ from American couple Surrender Hill we had to mention the title of every single track, just because it was impossible to find just one less great song, it is absolutely wonderful what Robin Dean Salmon and his lovely wife Afton Seekins have been realizing on this recently releases record....."

- Valére Sampermans / Rootstime -


"Surrender Hill's country rock offers engaging sounds with guitars, steel guitar and dobro, but the cherry on the cake is the excellent vocals and killing melodies, a real exciting duo....."

- Mike Penard /Radio I.S.A. FM -

Swampcandy  "Mine"  (Swampcandy)

"Swampcandy are the type of band that will play to a crowd of 50 in a tent at Glastonbury when U2 or Coldplay are headlining in front of 250 000 across the field, but 2 years later those 50 people will still be talking about the night that they had their lives changed....."

- Alan Harrison / The Rocking Magpie -


“Swampcandy's 'MIne' is more than a sonic expansion, it’s Ruben Dobbs’ finest work in what is already an impressive catalogue.....“

- Eric Schuurmans / Rootstime -


"If the game consists of categorizing this band, then I failed, this is just an incredible band that without any doubt has to be seen on stage, such an energy, a good vibe that we can feel in these recordings, the soundscape is more than rich, but they add tempo changes that really make their music sound unique, great arrangements, both disturbing and exciting, fasten your seatbelts, this is an area of musical turbulence….."

- Mike Penard / Radio I.S.A. FM -
