"...solo act Mississippi John Doude whips up a soup of working-class rock, dusty blues and hillbilly folk."
““Fuzzed-out, country-blues guitar picking sheds light on dark, forgotten places: Mississippi John Doude intones lyrics like a mystic casting a trance with earthy and immortal Southern sounds of gnarled trees, Spanish moss, and trails overrun with underbrush. Guitar in hand, he pounds out a heartbeat on kick drum and hi hat... ...But just as readily as Doude explores the broken and dilapidated machine that is the world, he sees the beautifully crafted cog that still shines, and offers: "There's plenty for all at cornbread time."”
““Mississippi John Doude is a rockabilly bluesman with an old-time sound drawn from greats like Son House and Muddy Waters. He plays guitar and harmonica while keeping the beat with a hi hat and bass drum. Mississippi John Doude is a do it yourself musician with a sound that goes well beyond being a gimmick. He manages to capture the essence of the downtrodden delta blues sound while avoiding pure imitation.””
““The one-man blues machine digs deep into the swampy, gritty origins of Americana and unearths a raw Southern sound that'll get voices hollerin' and feet stompin'.””
““Mississippi John Doude is a one-man powerhouse, ...a storyteller, and one who deserves to be heard and acknowledged.””
“MJD is “contemporary blues, ...from the delta to the hill country””
"MJD is an energetic blend of Hank Williams Jr. and Tom Waits with a mean slide guitar."
““MJD's Voodoo Panther is a roots duo that blends the sounds of North Mississippi Hill Country Blues with Classic Outlaw Country.””
““Mississippi John Doude's Voodoo Panther is the sophomore release by Mississippi John Doude. Including a bass player on several tracks creates the duo, Voodoo Panther. The album is an extreme departure from the conventionally produced music that is prevalent today. ...recorded almost entirely live in the garage of songwriter John Doude, the songs are raw and energetic. The crackling of overdriven tubes saturates most of the recordings.””
