"Dave Keller was a pleasure to work with at the North Atlantic Blues Festival this year. He put on an very entertaining show and was great with the audience."
North Atlantic Blues Festival
"Stunning...impassioned vocals...smooth delivery...honesty that can't be mitigated...fueled by infectious beats...a wise choice to recover some great lost soul music."
Michael Kinsman, Blues Revue
"SOULDRENCHED from the first song to the last! His music deserves to be heard around the world!"
Michael Cloeren, Founder and Producer, Pocono and Pennsylvania Blues Festivals
"A hidden treasure. 4 out of 4 stars."
Julien Crue, Soul Bag, Paris, France
Dan Bolles, Seven Days, Burlington, VT
"Dave Keller -- A Vermont Treasure!"
Governor Peter Shumlin
"Keller takes you back to the days when soul music really had soul. His voice, his guitar work, the excellent vocal harmonies and the fine band make "Where I'm Coming From" one of 2011's best records."
Brett Fleming, WEVL, Memphis, TN
"It's the only CD I can listen to."
Johnny Rawls, Mississippi soulman
"Keller's voice has a depth and soul to it that has to make him one of the most talented unsigned artists around. [He] recalls an early Van Morrison meets Otis Redding. It's like a Stax/Volt party for a new generation."
Chefjimi Patricola, Blues411.com
"...frankly amazing vocals...you won't get many opportunities to hear music as soulful and well realised as this."
"Dave Keller has seriously upped the ante for today's crop of soul singers."
Sheryl and Don Crow, Nashville Blues Society
"Blue-eyed soul that sounds like it was made along the Hi/Stax/Muscle Shoals/Malaco axis by Delbert McClinton's illegitimate son----and this guy is from New England. A solid does of all night, gut bucket, roadhouse soul that doesn't stop just because the sun is coming up."
"Glorious! The music is smooth, seductive, full of feeling, and yes, soulful. Dave Keller does a masterful job of singing and performing these classic soul tunes."
"Love, love, love the new CD!"
Dar Lopez, Sunday Blues with Dar, WKPX, Miami, FL
"One of the best releases I've heard all year."
Scott Hammer, Hambone's Blues Party, WDCB, Chicago, IL
"One of my favorite CDs of the year, and you know how many I get."
James Nagel, DJ, KPFT, Houston, TX
"...a fine bandleader and incisive guitarist in the no-note-wasted mold of Steve Cropper...with [his] expressive and sincere vocals always at the heart of things."
"Keller goes deeper with his songwriting than most blues artists dare to."
"In addition to being a fine singer, Keller is also an excellent guitarist, bringing to mind multitalented artists like James Hunter."
"...makes you thankful for things you had perhaps forgotten. Thanks Dave."
Smoky Mountain Blues Society
"...off the cuff spontenaiety and a reckless joie de vivre...deep in the real deal."
Midwest Record Recap
"...soulful and sanctified...refreshing."
Chicago Blues Guide
"Some songs on here could be around for quite a while."
"It's very compelling. A beautiful record with no pretensions."
Paul Rishell, blues musician
"Not only can this guy sing, but his guitar work borders on being an all out slinger."
"...impressive playing...songs with meaning and substance"
"Keller is as much a soul artist - think Clarence Carter, Chuck Jackson, Jerry Butler, Curtis Mayfield, and especially Boz Scaggs - as a blues player, and wears both hats well.
"It's the only CD I can listen to."
- Johnny Rawls, Mississippi soul man, 2010 BMA for best soul album
“It's going to be necessary to put Vermont on the map of blues and soul.”
Soul Bag, Paris, France
"He's for REAL. Y'all check him out!"
Deep soul legend
"Your music is just very, very beautiful."
