Joey Love / Press

“It has been written that “pain is the touchstone of all spiritual growth.” Perhaps for Joey it was the decision his parents made to split up. Or maybe it was his decisions to leave his mother and move to Texas. Most likely, it was the decision to take inventory of what was not working in his life and in his music and change what he could. None of that really matters as it is detail grounded in circumstance. What matters is the action behind the decision to reinvent himself. The result of all these actions is that Joey Love has found his voice in a Paul Reed Smith guitar, the sound of which is his soul.”

“Joey Love concentrates on no-nonsense Texas Blues. His guitar work is non-derivative giving up a hint of models from Stevie Ray Vaughan in the nice, clean tone and phrasing, avoiding Albert King licks entirely. The chord work behind "Lead Me Through Your Door" is graceful, Mayfield inspired stuff, good work !”

Blues Revue Magazine

“Your song "Last Broken Heart" was selected from thousands of other artists from the music gurus here at Riffage because we dig your music. Your song will be included in the Riffage Movie Madness CD which will be distributed with the October 2000 issue of SPIN Magazine”


“Love and associates deliver the goods... I can tell what Joey Love is not short on... solid tone or smooth vocal styling. When Love takes off on a solo it is smooth, elegant and fun, something missing from a lot of performers today.”

Bill Fountain - Southwest Blues Magazine

“It get's harder and harder to Review Dallas-Fort Worth based blues artists because they are all just getting better and Joey Love is no exception. As a player Love has an excellent blues feel and soulful approach to solos. He's capable of technical flash but often uses the "right note" attitude, creating what is right for the song. His strength is in his own material and his vocals are smooth and heartfelt.”
