One of MOJO’s Top 10 Blues Albums of 2014

“Over the past decade, Chris Bergson has become one of the most interesting blues-inspired songwriters. He describes the streetscapes and nightscapes of city life, painting small, memorable pictures, a kind of Edward Hopper of the blues. Bergson doesn’t do predictable, but there’s a visible thread of blues awareness running through the fabric of everything he writes, sings and plays: he is a concise and subtle guitarist and tough, grainy singer.” – Tony Russell, The Blues Magazine (UK)

“Another bulletin from the New York street poet with a blues soul. The music is as tight as a hangman’s knot.”
– Tony Russell, MOJO

“New Yorker Chris Bergson is a mountain of talent with his tight guitar, a smoky baritone…and reflective songwriting skills.”
– No

“This fine writer, singer and guitarist is pretty hard to ‘pigeon hole’, with his superb music covering blues, jazz, soul and classic rock flavours – the latter maybe from playing with a legend like the late Levon Helm of The Band. Exemplary guitar and vocals… highly recommended…”
– Blues in the Northwest (UK)

“Chris Bergson is a modern-day blues baron.”

“A monstrous talent.”
– Feeling Blues (France)

“A work that never loses its ability to intrigue and excite, and whose merit is to be ascribed equally to the personality of the musicians.”
– Il Blues (Italy)

“Chris Bergson is not only one of the great guitarists, the man can really sing well – giving him a welcome difference to some other guitar gods.”
– Wasser-Prawda (Germany)
