"The self produced 'Soul Song' has a very slick and professional full sound to all tracks. The overall style encapsulates the music Steve loves. With a decidedly commercial appeal, the flavor is blues, jazz and pop. The CD definitely provides 'cheek to cheek' moments for the dance crowd."

"Thunderheads are a judicious jamming band, with compact songwriting that also recalls Dire Straits' Mark Knopfler."

“The Escape, an excellent instrumental by Blexrud that seems to reveal what could be this band's calling, a kind of Southern rock/jazz fusion that I found enormously refreshing. As far as the singing is concerned, these guys can sing better than just okay.”
