John Orr Franklin / Press

“If you wondered whatever happened to great, old fashioned, accessible, Album Oriented Rock, you'll find it alive and well in the able hands of Austin based guitarist John Orr Franklin. A talented axeman of the highest caliber.”

“At his best Franklin channels the rather sophisticated pleasures of Bob Welch, Steve Miller, or David Gilmour.”

“If you're into Dave Gilmour and Joe Satriani you will enjoy this Album.”

“Transformation is a Melodic Rock Masterpiece!”

“John and his music give out a positive vibe, making this album a joy to listen to!”

"Transformation" - This album is a veritable showcase of chops.

Scott Homewood - Freelance Music Journalist

“JOF incorporates elements of jazz, blues and pop for a melodic, unconventional sound that isn’t derivative of anyone’s work.”

“Transformation has the softness and reflections of silk, the luster of gold and the charm of music that goes straight to the heart. Nothing less!”

“The gentle ballad "This Day" has a deep under the skin tone in the Pink Floyd-style, this song gives me goose bumps.”
