This music demands to be heard. Brunt’s playing reminds us of the great Lonnie Mack; unhurried, at imes playful, but always a thoughtful touch, and well played. Then too, his vocals and story telling are reminiscent of Delbert McClinton.

He is basically an electric blues story teller. He pays homage to classic American blues but his slide technique and use of a wah-wah pedal propel the sound into the present. He may not be flashy but he is a master technician who is able to convey emotion and a personal connection though his music.By David Bowling

Incidentally, all the songs are thoughtful originals - there’s no slinging together of a few common stock verses on this very individual, entertaining and thought-provoking set.

All original tunes, for me it’s Brunt’s guitar playing which takes centre stage. It’s so understated and subtle, and has me wondering why it’s taken him so long to record electric. Good stuff though, one to sit and listen to intently, diggin’ on the heavy, slow groove.
