Gene Hilbert & Luck Of The Draw / Press

“Seasoned performer Gene Hilbert’s latest release, “Larger Prey,” is a collection of original music fused with classic rock, jazz, and blues. A one-man show, Hilbert not only is the vocalist and guitarist but also has creatively performed every other instrument. The album’s high-quality production is heard in each track, and each track is arranged with excellent distinction between instruments and vocals. Subtle bell sounds and horns complement the razor sharp guitar on “Morning 20.” Harmonic guitars highlight the moving piece “March to Baghdad” as it takes on a sound of its own. Vocals are low and clean while the harmonies are perfectly layered on “Talk To Me.” Hilbert has taken different musical styles and has compiled a wonderful selection of songs with powerful guitar melodies. “Larger Prey” is a guitar driven album that is well worth hearing, especially for listeners who enjoy Joe Satriani or Santana. -Diane and the RadioIndy.com Reviewer Team”

"This tune brings a billowing refreshing breeze." Natalie Perdu - From Facebook in reference to the song "Stay"

“You won't find head-banging, mosh'n tunes here, but you will find some amazing music that is sure to please your ears and maybe even leave wondering "why the hell am I so emotional". Blues baby...Blues!! Gene is an awesome guitarist. With music like this you can picture his performance in your mind (who needs video). It never ceases to amaze me, how one person can possess so much talent. If his music don't move you, then you are only getting half of the ride.”

“Love your music! My kinda style.”
