"Creative Loafing Atlanta's Best of 2011- "BEST LOCAL BLUES ACT" (Critics Pick).
"An Atlanta guitar slinger with a swooping pompadour, Rod Hamdallah has swiftly risen
through the ranks of Atlanta's die-hard blues scene by taking cues from such hometown
icons as the late Sean Costello and Donnie McCormick. With a blend of delta blues,
electric roots and garage rock girth, Hamdallah has tricked out a sultry sound and
presence that's recharging the blues. He's what the old heads who lurk in the shadows
at the back of the bar refer to as the real deal, and they ain't lyin'." Creative
Loafing Atlanta, Creative Loafing
"Anyone who’s heard Rod
live—and live is the way he should be heard—talks about the dark lyrics,
full-throttle energy and deep swamp passion he puts into his heavy licks. That hard-edged
sound has earned him comparisons to Skip James, Captain Beefheart, Charlie Patton,
Tom Waits and more recently the White Stripes. He looks the part, too—thick
dark pompadour, sideburns, usually dressed in black.
