“It has been five years since “Lookin’ For Texas” and this is a welcome treat. The opening cut “Sizzlin’ Hot” is a jazzy, funky ballad with strong sexual undertones, then the bouncy ballad “Wrong Side of the Blues” takes a more jazz-oriented feel, but is a cute little tune. A smoky ballad, “The Day You Went Away” is a fine example of love gone bad song and Norm Uhl takes the lead vocals on a cutesy “The Drinking Song” where he keeps promising to “give up drinking, as soon as I finish this beer”. Sandy Hickey belts out “Lost Respect”, a real torch song of he-done-her-wrong story, and then nails a scorching cover of “Use What You Got”. Her rendition of the Gershwin classic “Summertime” is a fine cover of this much-covered song, and is also a staple of their live shows, and then they finish with the title cut, a real rockin’ blues cut with lots of screaming guitars, howling harmonica and honky-tonk piano, a really good way to end the album.

“Brother 2 Brother is musical camaraderie at its best and Lookin' For Texas is diverse and divine! ”

“After listening to this CD, you got to think that B2B, like saltwater taffy, is pulled in many different directions, but their heart and soul is in the Blues. They're a rocket ship on the launch pad about to take off. ”

“Houston's Brother 2 Brother is unmistakably a rock band, but their tasteful and accomplished playing, blues-based songwriting lend the self-released "Lookin' for Texas" a distinct appeal.”

Tom Hyslop - Blues Revue

“These guys will have you foot tappin', shakin' your head, and sayin' "oh, ya" to a steady beat of blues rock. Fusing instruments like trombones, fiddles, and saxophones; this blues-rock album "Lookin' for Texas" will fill your stereo and echo in your mind for hours after listening.”

Brian Shipley - Jamestown Music

“The sound of the Brother 2 Brother disc, "Lookin' For Texas", is the sound of a live band at work, striving to entertain the crowd at all costs. Brother 2 Brother should be congratulated for so successfully translating their live stage show into the fixed form of a studio recording.”
