Press Clippings

"Steel Guitar - A Blues Opera" enthusiastically gets my highest rating of 5*****. Highly Recommended and Thoroughly Enjoyed...John Vermilyea - The Blues Report (Feb 2, 2012)

 

The album showcases Herzog's picking style and smooth, lived-in voice. His relaxed, autumnal way of spinning a story recalls Greg Brown, maybe Utah Phillips, but with less folk and more blues. Donna Kimura - jazzreview.com (Jan 29, 2012)

 

Steel Guitar, that is one of the most original ideas I've heard in quite some time...Herzog's songs give you a sense of the guitar's journey, incorporating various styles...all rooted in the blues. It's an interesting journey and one worth taking. Graham Clarke - Friday Blues Fix (Sep 9, 2011)

 

Herzog's down-home blues is rooted in the tradition of Robert Johnson and Mississippi John Hurt — he is masterful in his use of the glass bottleneck slide — and at the same time he subtly twists in the folk styles of singer-songwriters such as Bob Dylan and Greg Brown. Mike Oxendine - Ashland Daily Tidings (Sep 25, 2009)

 

I have to confess this artist has stolen my heart with his back porch blues and honest vocals. His “Pretty Mama Take Me Home”, Pete Herzog’s song, has a tender honesty and delicate guitar that just grabs me. But even his slide blues tune, “Jump On Blues,” has my foot tapping and, though written about the Pacific Northwest, have the feel of the Delta. Janie Franz - Skope (Sep 17, 2009)

 

Pete Herzog mixes Blues and Folk styles like they were born together. Homestyle is as down home as it gets. Folk and Blues fans will sing the praises of Pete Herzog. Wildy Haskell - Wildy's World (Apr 27, 2009)

 

I must say right off the bat" you are a "Real Dealer" in the "One Man Acoustic' Blues machine. Terry Iredale - Tecka's Tracks.HOTFM 106.7FM (Nov 5, 2008)

 

With a voice, oiled in a good Gin, we are dealing with an artist, who knows very well how it must have been in the Mississippi Delta.  A unique style, strong vocals en ditto lyrics, who are breathing the past, the present and the future. T-Bourbon - Bobtje's Blues Pages (Oct 7, 2008)

 

And always there is the resonant echo of his guitars that skin and soul stirs. Pete has a handful of road with his warm voice and skilled guitar technique to introduce you to his private blue kingdom. Marcie - Rootstime-Belgium (Oct 13, 2008)
