"The one-man folk wonder Possessed by Paul James."
"Playing to the rafters, singing like a man possessed."
"Urban Roots with the Occasional Rural Punk...folk with a gut."
"His homespun songs cover a wide range of American roots music and generally propel him into a trance-like state. Sometimes the music pours out of him in a delicate vocal warble. Other times he saws at his fiddle and snarls like a pit bull."
"If I were to make a list of the twenty most important singer/songwriters of our time, JKWt, better known under the moniker Possessed by Paul James, would undoubtedly be among those at the very top, if not the topmost artist."
"Seeing Possessed by Paul James live is one feat that is unbeatable, his transformation from a genuinely kind-hearted and caring man into the maniacally controlled and beast-like man of musical charm is out of this planetary realm."
""Feed the Family" captures everything that makes Possessed By Paul James great without spending too much time in that challenging area that requires knowing him live to be able to truly “get it”".
"Feed The Family is a wonderful album that demands your attention. It’s almost impossible to use this as a background music, because this has more soul than the Hitsville box sets and it will cause a beautiful havoc in your heart."
"He plays in a passionate fervor of outbursts, hooting and hollering as if on fire, or, as his project name suggests, possessed. His sound is a restrained explosion of old blues and country. He's got some demons, and he spits them out and eats them back up."
"All Possessed songs are wholly original, or the illusion that they are original is strong enough that even this tragic audiofile is not strong enough puncture it."
