“A gifted singer/songwriter”
“Daniel Nestlerode’s trade mark high quality musicianship, fine voice and charming stage presence is topped with his beautifully produced album “More than a little guitar”; this is real quality.”
"Hugely gifted singer songwriter"
"Smooth and assured vocals mixed beautifully with his mandolin, giving all those present a performance which left a warm glow. Lovely."
"Going to the West is very much steeped in the nineteenth century Southern tradition, whilst Old Calapina is a Nestlerode original; a gentle ballad which tells of a Native American woman struggling to get by in a changing California. The EP concludes with Bluegrass TV, an instrumental mandolin medley of familiar fiddle tunes including The Girl I Left Behind Me, Mouret's 1729 Premier Suite des Symphonies (parts one and two), the French Canadian St. Anne's Reel and finally the gorgeous Jay Ungar tune Ashokan Farewell, famously used as the theme to Ken Burns' utterly compelling TV documentary series The Civil War
"What an unexpected and supremely enjoyable encounter with Daniel Nestlerode & his mandolin recently. His voice is superb and his renditions of self-penned songs, and quirky covers brought a smile to everyone's face!"
