Eddie Riel Solo Acoustic / Press

““Eddie Riel writes excellent songs and sings really well. I was struck by Eddie's half-strumming / half-finger picking style of playing...Eddie's playing is exactly right for his material. I can see/hear the strums and the notes, kind of a smooth strumming on the swing down and a semi-picking on the way up, so it's interesting ...And this folksy minstrel-esque manner fits the songs. It's like Woody Guthrie come to town. The songs are pure Americana- the epitome of the term; this is real "roots" music (it ain't no Lee Greenwood cryin' in yer star-spangled ballad crap), and the voice... Ah, yes, the voice! If Randy Travis held it steady, he'd be half way to Eddie Riel. One great singer-songwriter”--Jimm O'Donnell”
