Mojo Radio / Press

““Here is a good example of why rock is NOT dead. There are a few bands out there still producing real music. Mojo Radio is one of them. They can actually play their instruments, and the singer doesnt need auto-tune. If you love 70s rock like Led Zep, Free, Humble Pie, then check these guys out.””

“This four-piece band is based in Wisconsin but much of the music here is the kind of powerhouse rock-blues at which Led Zeppelin excelled in their early days...”

“It used to be that the vocalists with the big blues-inflected rock bands - think The Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin - would lace their numbers with some wailing blues harmonica from time to time. Wisconsin four piece Mojo Radio certainly remember this, with a big, big rock-blues sound that has plenty of harmonica work by Adam Zierten neatly and consistently incorporated with the riffing guitars and powerhouse rhythms that recall Led Zeppelin's early days. If you like your blues-rock hot, heavy and harp-laden, this will certainly do the business.”

Norman Darwen - Harmonica World (UK)

"Singer Adam Zierten has a voice custom-built for ‘70’s rock." "Guitarist Jason Peterson’s playing is conservative yet emotional." "Drummer Brent King fills each track with a distinctive patter but it’s in the rumble of “Death of Me” that benefits from his full weight. The thumping “Avalanche” is a musical playground for bassist Scott Aumann and his four-string fury. Level, on the mark, and in the pocket, the combined rhythm section gives the guitar and voice all the room they need to flex and strut." " Personal favorite, “Changing of the Tide” could easily sit on Bad Company’s debut. A power-blues rocker, the song is etched by slide guitar, wah wah, pounding bass/drums, incredible vocal and a hook chorus. It’s 1974 all over again!"

Todd K. Smith - The Electric Beard

“The Grooveyard Records label has a trump card with Mojo Radio, as these gentlemen have already proven with their two releases. For fans of solid blues-rock inspired by the great bands of that genre from the seventies, this is one you should not pass up. Strong stuff!”

“Another stellar blues rocking release from Grooveyard Records. Torn Asunder opens the album pretty cool with acoustic guitar, distorted harmonica and Adam Zierten’s bluesy vocal delivery, a bit similar to Paul Rodgers actually. This was however just the calm before the storm, as all hell breaks loose shortly after. Groovy, heavy blues rock at its best! Wailing slide guitar, groovy bass and drums with a ton of swagger. Throw Free, The Black Crowes and Gov’t Mule in a blender and this is what would probably come out. No need for further explanations. Each and every track delivers and this is a 100 % safe buy!”

“a timeless pleasure, made ​​in Wisconsin...”

“...the Americans provide excellent blues rock...”

"this fully-underground-band which in 2013 claimed supremacy for classic rock releases of the year" #3 on top 15 releases of 2013 picked by Antonis Moustakas

“(Rise) ranks as one of the top recordings of the year and one of the strongest to come out of the city in a while.”

“9/10 rating for our album RISE...Mojo Radio clearly delivers an excellent follow up that improves upon their initial release. Rise is the perfect name for this one, because that is exactly what this collection of original tracks should cause to happen. This is the album that ought to compel everyone to rise up from their pop radio induced slumber and take notice of these four hard rocking blues guys from Wisconsin.”

“‘Rise’ shows Mojo Radio maturing in to a more cohesive unit, mining the gritty blues-rock sound originated by the likes of Savoy Brown or The Faces, and popularized in more recent years by the Black Crowes. Their new songs are tight and trimmed of any excessive baggage, making it evident that the group woodshedded for months before committing these new songs to tape. J.P. Peterson’s guitar is crispy razor sharp in it’s recorded presence. His slide work drips of reverberation and cavernous echo, giving this material a retro nod, yet managing to pull the best from the past and plant it firmly in to the present. Adam Zierten’s vocals now sound a lot like Chris Robinson, soulfully expressive on slower more “down home” tracks like “Hold Your Breath” and “110912”.”

“Jason Peterson’s Guitar Playing encompasses a wide spectrum of styles, and is very much worth discovering/listening to. ”

“AWESOME DEBUT STUDIO DISC BY THIS OUTSTANDING BLUES-BASED HARD ROCK BAND FROM WISCONSIN FEATURING 12 TRACKS OF BAD-ASS, KILLER, BLUESY HEAVY GUITAR RIFFAGE & EXCELLENT SOUL-POWERED VOX THAT LAND ROCK SOLID ON THE VINTAGE, RETRO-70S, ANALOG BOOGIE TRAIN. MOJO RADIO PRODUCE & DELIVER AN ESSENTIAL SONIC SLICE OF HARD-HITTING, MEMORABLE CLASSIC ROCK AND ROLL FOR YOUR SOUL THAT IS HIGHLY RECOMMENDED TO FANS OF THE BLACK CROWES, HUMBLE PIE, HOLY GOATS & STONE MACHINE.”

“Rock infused with blues, not syrupy and not the energetic, the brutal and even the rough, kind of what was in the 70s (the vain god V'la nostalgic. That strikes my brain on the day of my seventy brushes ......). A Blues Rock that was enjoyed by listening to legends such as Free, Faces, Humble Pie, etc.. and more recently bands like the Black Crowes. A blues rock whose base rests on a rhythmic burnée, a tad roller on which the voices are poignant and heartbreaking guitar lines, the canons of the genre what? Yes but with a big tip of customization, particularly marked by the use of the harmonica as a binder and a powerful groove infused with influences of blues classics excellent musicians who make up this energetic band. Four burly men in Wisconsin, which to put the puck in boxes were exported from the side of Nashville (warmer in this corner ...). Mojo Radio washer multi-generational par excellence and a proven recipe that really works!”

“A night of rock 'n' roll begins at 7 p.m. on the main stage with Wisconsin native band Mojo Radio. This rock and blues-inspired band is the perfect introduction for Kansas...”

“Adam Zierten's vocals are double edged like the sweet buzz from a whiskey sour.”

“this band is the dog's bollocks”

Daryl Greenway (Whirlwind Music) - personal email

“cranked-up blues-rock”

“I LOVE your music!!!”

“I really like these guys, they remind me of a cross between Hendrix and The Black Crowes”

“Nice production quality on all fronts, - solid. I really like your band's vocalist. I like the way you guys layered his vocals on certain parts. My favorite is song #2 (Healin') ... nice guitar arrangement and I liked the B-3 drone'in - in the background.”
