Mwe3 Guitar Magazine writes::

"Cloutier is a guitarist sounding clearly inspired by rock guitar greats like Jimi Hendrix and Johnny Winter as well as more traditional blues, R&B and jazz guitarists as diverse as Buddy Guy, Steve Cropper, Robin Trower and Kenny Burrell. In other words, Mark is a guitarist who's not afraid to break through with a hard rock riff before moving on to jazzing things up when he has to."

“No matter what you learn {musically}, there’s always more to be done,” he said while gripping his Stratocaster inside the de facto studio he has in his East Syracuse home." ( Syracuse New Times -Neil Benjamin 2012)
