“Buddy’s Walk simply smokes right out of the gate”

“James "Buddy" Rogers has paid his dues, and it shows.”

“James 'Buddy' Rogers could be qualified as a dream made true. James is an able musician gifted with a fine style and, the most important thing, he attracts audiences.”

“My Guitar’s My Only Friend might be his third album, which often is the peak for a rock band, but it seems like a beginning. ”

“With the new year just just about five weeks away, it shouldn't be much longer than that before we'll be hearing about the 2013 Blues Music Award Nominations and it wouldn't shock me in the least if I saw "My Guitar's My Only Friend" by James "Buddy' Rogers as a nominee in the Best New Artist Debut Category.”

“With passion and vigor, the debut album from James 'Buddy' Rogers shines a new light on the blues, and the exposure is bright, illuminating one of Canada's hottest young blues exports on the scene today.”

“This is some high caliber Canadian blues ! Johnny Zee co host of Rollin & Tumblin with the blues on www.cfcr.ca Sakatoon's community radio station!”

“One of the first things that will catch your attention on "My Guitar's My Only Friend", is James "Buddy" Rogers extraordinary Guitar playing, which comes from over 25 years of playing ...”

“Tone to the bone and phrasing from Blues heaven, James “Buddy” Rogers delivers with a sweet voice and a big bounce!”

BillieBoy Lucas (CHLY 101.7FM) - James Buddy Rogers - My Guitar's My Only Friend

“... the guitar playing is top notch modern blues. The whole band is strong, but this is Rogers’ album and he is the star musically.”

“Blame It On The Blues, another swing style blues has a real nice groove and Rogers demonstrates his abilities as a singer and player to be reckoned with.”

““If I wasn’t a huge fan I’d have never produced his album. Buddy’s blues guitar ranks with the very best.””

Tom Lavin - Powder Blues

“I had to get to Pat's Pub in Vancouver, to interview James “Buddy” Rogers and check out his band's show. Both were great! Well worth the rushing around. I met James carrying his Kinglsey amp into the bar. The highlights for me were when they played their originals, or Rogers' channelled Jimmie Vaughan! I also went to CD Baby and picked up the two James “Buddy” Rogers CDs. At $2.49 USD each, they are a steal, and great discs!”

“Buddy Rogers is a fantastic young blues player”

“A fine guitarist with a good variety of blues and rock tones who swings well and understands playing in the pocket, which is not true for everyone (to say the least).”

Bruce Iglauer - Alligator Records - James 'Buddy' Rogers

“Rogers is a very good singer and guitar player with an excellent group of musicians behind him, something more people are beginning to realize as this disc is climbing well on the Roots Music Report charts.”

“It’s hard not to hear Rogers and think of Albert King. They have a similar liquid funkiness to their playing.”

“If you mixed Robert Cray, Buddy Guy and JW Jones into a blender and took the result down to Antones in Austin , Texas, the result would sound like James “Buddy” Rogers.”
