Jeremy Lyons / Press

“Lyons has a light, fleet touch, and though his approach is subtle, he’s a great player… He’s fast, but he’s passionate, too, and his playing has a depth that’s oozed up from the grime of the New Orleans streets he’s called home…”

““You’d have thought this guy would have found himself a major label by now, though on the other hand you wouldn’t want to hear him overproduced.””

Pamela Polston - Seven Days (Burlington, VT)

"Busking shaped not only (Jeremy Lyons’) life but his art, and it’s a part of the New Orleans musical story that doesn’t get enough attention.”

Alex Rawls - OffBeat Magazine (New Orleans)

““Jeremy is an exceptional guitar player, a master at finger picking and slide. But what really persuades the listener are Jeremy’s unpretentious vocals, stage presence, and song selection.””

Lee Alban - Blues Rag (Official Newsletter of the Baltimore Blues Society)

“His down-home yet elegant way with traditional material is a tonic.”

Boston Herald

““Lyons and his band exude an easy-going atmosphere that makes you pine for a swing porch and a glass of lemonade.””

Rod Harmon - The Herald (Tampa, FL)

““His voice booms with an authority his frail frame doesn’t seem capable of supporting.””

Franklin Crawford - The Ithaca Journal

““I like this kinda hungover-Sunday-morning stuff... (Death of a Street Singer is) the warmest, most authentic thing I got for this whole issue.””

Joe Coughlin - The Noise Magazine (Boston)

““…before even finding a seat I am wide-eyed at the young bandleader curled over his steel guitar, jamming some Delta-style slide like a banshee from the bottomlands….some of the sharpest yet most emotive slide guitar in town… Where the hell is this coming from and why haven’t I heard of him before?””

Brandy Morris - TRIBE Magazine

“The fluid finger picking and searing slides set the swinging rhythm ablaze. The resulting sound is thick with tradition, yet somehow refreshing and unconventional.”
