Lenny Slomon
"The Lenny Solomon Band plays a modern variation of good ole Creedence, with a dash of Petty, and a splash of Wilco. They have just enough country twang and lite-rockin' folksy blues to grab your attention. I like this a lot, especially the easy effortless way Lenny sings with a wizened adult outlook on life and its complexities. He had some radio success with Let's Go to Mars, protesting the current war, and his observations of some modern dilemmas like Katrina ("The Flood") and personal misplaced values ("The Great Judgment"), places his sensitivity and caring center stage. There are a few novelty tunes also (It's Snowin' or Rockabilly Kid) which balance his viewpoints. The sound of the band is a major factor, especially the mercurial guitar pickings of Bill Gibbs, who works wonders with his Telecaster and assorted acoustics. Every line is concise and wonderfully constructed, just like you'd expect from any Nashville Star."  Harry C. Tuniese, The Noise
"I had the great pleasure of making the musical acquaintance of Massachusetts-based Lenny Solomon with his "Global Warming Blues" entry on the 2005 Songs for a Better Planet compilation disc.Although Mr. Solomon has a penchant for creating solid blues music with a lyrical social conscience, Maybe Today (2007) is a multi-flavoured, 14-song collection encompassing dreamily reflective folk ballads ("Maybe Today" and "Why"), dance-friendly country shuffles ("Spare Change, "Friendly Rock"), upbeat soft-rock melodies and rhythms ("When No One's On the Run", "Island of Misplaced Souls") and fusions with a Dylan-like blues foundation (e.g. "It's Snowing"). The mellow "Other Side of the Street" has a Tom Petty/Neil Young influence to it, and speaking of the latter, Mr. Young included Lenny's "Let's Go to Mars" track from this CD on his Living with War Today "Songs of the Times" website listing. It was #2 on the now-2000-plus songlist in September"  Diane Wells,
