“The best album I've heard in 2013 and the competition isn't even close.”
— Douglass Morrisey,Muzik Reviews
“Every song is a gem.”
— Radio and Retail
"There's a fine legacy of Texas blues and Woody Russell is well up there alongside many of his heroes. His guitar playing on this album is excellent, his hard-edged vocal style is perfectly suited to his self-written songs and the whole thing has the feel of an album that is part of the man and not just a project. …he sounds like he means business. He has taken the influences around him and made an album that sounds like the work of a man whose life revolves around his music and he writes and plays well enough to put him well ahead of most of his peers." - Andy Snipper, Blues Matters (UK) Feb/Mar 2011

“Woody Russell is a Featured Artist on the CW Networks 22 episode TV series, "Troubadour, TX".”
“Woody Russell brings an excitingly fresh, diverse and dynamic approach to the blues with his newest release "Up Against It". Strong compostions with melodic vocals firmly anchored with a driving, top notch band. Pick up a copy and give it a spin...you'll be glad you did.”
"He's got some powerful, gut-emanating pipes, full of soul and deeply-felt conviction. He immediately drew attention with his intricate finger work. The packed crowd was roaring in the tiny venue… eclectic and unique and worth more than the price of admission."

— Keith "Muzikman" Hannaleck,Blues Matters (UK)
