"Mornin' Light" is a cheerful ode to his only daughter Shawn-Michelle and is outstanding!! Surber made his bones in the band TEXAS during the 70's-80's and has proven he can stand on his own as a singer/songwriter/guitarist. He rocks the house with every song and merits repeated listens.
"Please Let Go Of My Heart", the rockin' "Don't Have To Love Me Back" and the soulful, harmonica-heavy "Down In Mexico" to the fiery, wide-ranging "Showdown At The Lonestar Saloon" all keep your heart pumping til the last notes fade.
“Surber found his way back, fully recovered and is stronger than ever as can be heard in his latest compilation of Texas storied songs....all dripping with sweat and tears on his HEY GUITAR CD beginning with "Educated Redneck", a nod to Surber's ever-present sense of humor.”
“Jerry Lee Surber holds his head up high as he sings his heart out on his latest lrelease, HEY GUITAR. The singer/songwriter has a lot to share with the world after a near-death experience, which left him in a coma for five weeks in Jan./Feb. 2000.”
“There's some rockin' Texas roadhouse sounds on the CD's opener..the title cut. Then he takes a turn on the light-and-easy "Keep On Dancin" which should be a favorite on many dance floors in the Lone Star state as well as the two-steppin' "She's The Reason I Left Texas".”
“The son of a teacher and a Baptist preacher, one would assume that Surber would tend to paint inside the lines most of the time. Even so, there's a very eclectic feel to the music he presents on WRANGLER.”
“Is it Country? Well, that could be debated. Is it blues? That could be debated as well. Is it entertaining? That, I can tell you most assuredly, it is!!!”
“Vocally, to suggest that Surber's vocals are clean and pristine would be stretching things a little. His voice is one that has been lived in, a trait that is very apparent on tracks like "Hard Luck" and "Ev'ry Town", which is an ode to small town life.”
“With a name like Jerry Lee, you would have to figure that you would be in for a dose of Southern Music mixed with a little bit of blues. That's what you get on his HEY---GUITAR CD. Surber, a native of Shamrock,TX. assembled quite an interesting collection with this disc.”
"Here's the deal. Jerry doesn't just write songs...he paints them. They play in your mind's eye like a movie. A perfect marriage of songwriting and melodies that pull you in.. and never let you go."
"There are so many intricacies in the music that compliment the song lyrics..incredible harmony vocals..we have definitely found a new fave!! This CD has it all and it will blow you away!! Looking forward to much more from this super-talented artist."
"After listening to a couple of his discs, I can tell you that you would be hard pressed to find an entertainer who works harder at covering each and every musical base that he can...to keep the listener satisfied. Give it a listen...You might just like it!!!"
"I don't know if Surber would be as effective delivering this material ten to twenty years ago..as he hadn't yet lived these experiences. With his age and wisdom these songs definitely sound like they are coming straight from the heart....and that's what sets them apart!!!"
"His vocal approach brings to mind someone like Chris LeDoux, who had a style all his own."
"There's a message behind his music and it's time the rest of the world heard it."
