Think Ennio Morricone and Brian Eno thumb wrestling in the back seat of a moving ’66 Thunderbird to see who’ll pay the tab after a night of Tequilla at a desert punk bar…..or whatever movie you make up in your head while listening. – Joe Rut (stellar songwriter)

The Reverend is a guitar man and his music is inherently guitar-driven. Its presence, while always very much there in the moment, is expertly blended and always seems to know when to pull back so that the whole of the song, aka ‘the big picture’, retains its maximum integrity, even if the guitar isn’t always the hero of the tune. – Statik Noize

No Destination moves like a fever dream. Its rise and fall dances with a melodic guitar as the blistering day turns to sacred night. Through measures of wavering chords that wash against the stanza’s canvas, and a drum beat the grooves with punctuated syncopation, the song becomes an aching story. It’s easy to imagine a black Cadillac driving down a lonely road with a destination unknown. As it finally peels out of focus, we start to wonder, was it ever really there at all? Skope

You owe it to yourself to go check out this amazing and truly unique guitarist. He has chops, he has wicked control over his timbre, he’s innovative, he’s edgy, he’s humorous…really, one of the more impressive experimental sets I’ve heard in a long while, and I play experimental festivals A LOT!!!

You, sir, are a true master of the atmospheric guitar. And like all masters of the atmosphere, you suspend time so beginning and end fuse into a seamless whole leaving only a time gap
