Brad Hooper / Press

“GOT THIS LOW, GOT BACK UP - "The opener, 'Sinkin' Kind of Feelin',' is piano-fueled blues, almost dead-on Royal Albert Hall-era Clapton… …when Hooper tells us 'if it wasn't for them blues, when I got this low, I'd have nothin' at all,' it spills out of him, like it was forced from within." Sam Pfeifle – Portland Phoenix, August 2011”

"Living in Nashville, I was fortunate to work with hit singer/songwriters and publishers. Brad possesses the same qualities of a first-class songwriter and with a classic voice to match! There is a real [John Prine, Ry Cooter] thing going on and people need to hear it." Michael Rizzo - Award-winning producer with EpicSoul.com (NBC, CBS, ABC, FOX, UNIVERSAL, DISNEY, etc.)

“There's a new troubadour in town, name of Brad "Squintwood" Hooper, and he will knock your goddamn socks off. Sure, it's traditional folk/blues, but this dude plays and sings with real soul and knows how to write a song ( see his album, Midnight at the Hilltop Hotel for proof.) ”

“ALBANY - Brad Hooper may not have been born with a guitar in his hand and a harmonica in his mouth as Arlo Guthrie claims, but he sings of laughter and loss with all of his heart from the depth of his soul.”
