““Nick’s handywork on lead guitar is impeccably precise … fiery energy and breathtaking guitar work, and his voice suits the blues man, with performances of liquid gold … notes flourish like a roaring freight train”

Southeast Performer Magazine

“Tasteful Blues Rock is on the menu from Atlantan Nick Edelstein, whose album 'Ripple' features him tearing through tunes both bluesy and funky; there's a little Stevie Ray in there, some Hendrix and even a twinge of the Red Hot Chili Peppers from the rhythm section.”


“Nick matches immaculate phrasing and speed with soulful, tasteful melodies!”

Lexi Tabback - Piedmont Review

“Blues rocker, guitarist, and singer/songwriter Edelstein plays straightforward Blues-touched rock and roll. The writing is strong while his band accents the classic guitar riffs on both rockers and ballads.”

Samir Shukla - Creative Loafing Charlotte

“4 stars! Nick gives us a sophisticated take on rock, while at the same time managing to leave a certain rawness still intact thereby giving the whole sound a greater depth of feeling than you generally expect from this approach.”


“Imagine if Skynyrd were starting up today — post Atlanta Rhythm Section, post Red Hot Chili Peppers. That's the feeling I get with Nick Edelstein. Songs like "Kentucky Sun" and "Tripping" are great live, under the sun with drink in hand. "Sign From Above" is old-school pop, like Styx or Kansas.”
