"Mind candy for the listener to chew on."Jessica Novak, Syracuse New Times
"The album of twelve songs of roots rock/blues/folk has an understated raw beauty. Every song is a winner, thick with evocative linesstrong melodiespowerful groovesand wickedly good, subtle guitar playing. This CD will hold you hostage."Céline Keating, Minor 7th
"Having come to appreciate the art of songwriting while living in Nashville, I realized the difference between a writer, an artist, and an entertainer. Jeffrey Pepper Rodgers is one of those unique talents who manages to embrace all three. His lyrics clearly come from his heart and soul, his mastery of the guitar is a work of art, and his attentiveness and interaction with the audience is warm and genuine."
