MARK "MUDDYHARP" HODGSON
. . .The best harmonica I''ve heard.
Jeff Healy-MCA Records
. . .You got your own guitar style, man.
Buddy Guy-Silvertone Records
. . .You play likes you was born to it.
. . .So blistering is Hodgson''s harmonica, it would turn the heads of Nashville Folk & heavy metal kids.
Rick De Yampert-The Tennessean
. . .Hodgson is probably the best blues player in Florida. On "Xpress Train," his harmonica blaze would make John Popper jealous.
Dennis Walkling-Jam Magazine
. . . Our Sun Is Gonna Shine, one of three Hodgson originals . . . performed to perfection.
. . . Plays harp at a frenetic pace . . .
Dennis Maloney-Skylands Blues News, NJ
. . . Usually it''s the guitar slingers who go over the top . . . it''s refreshing to see a harpist do the same.
Bill Harriman-Sound Waves
. . . World-class musician.
Tinsley Ellis, TELARC RECORDING ARTIST
. . . with the hundreds of harmonica players out there it''s easy to become somewhat cynical and closed-minded. Too many harp-blowers doin'' and sayin'' the same thing. It''s rare that you find someone with talent and strong enough individuality to make them stand out from the pack . . . Mark Hodgson shows enough brilliance to warrant close and careful scrutiny from here on in.
Andy Grigg-Real Blues, Canada Aug/Sept
One of the strongest indie releases of the year . . . Hodgson is a first rate harp player and a convincing vocalist . . . tight classic sounding and loads of fun.
Since we opened in August, Hodgson has become the favorite at the House of Blues here in Orlando.
Adam Shipley, Talent Buyer-
. . . When this album is good, it is painfully great.
Doug Elfman-Daytona Beach News Journal
.....With just acoustic guitar, harmonica and his rich, Rottweiler-bark of a voice, Hodgson kicks Satan''s butt and conjures the spirits of Muddy, Stevie Ray and Robert Johnson
Rick de Yampert--Daytona Beach News Journal
....You perform with a lot of taste and good attention to the tradition without trying to copycat anyone. My compliments on some very good music
Bruce Iglauer...Founder Alligator records
