REVIEWS FOR ALBUM FIVE so far.........Nigel Barker’s musical output is simply amazing. I'm listening to a symphony. Each new song a new surprise, a new mood and it’s infectious. Barker is a true music connoisseur who does not hesitate to use anything and everything he has at his disposal to great stylistic effect. Such a fusion is seldom heard and in this clash of styles we come to musical moments that are inspired and incredible results. It’s truly great, inspiring and absolutely original music.

Gritty harmonica, fuzz guitars, a touch of the Velvet Underground. The album has beautiful production that bears a comparison with Lou Reed. It’s radio-friendly but experiments with all kinds of sounds. From ripping, distorted unexpected guitar solos to a large orchestra and the accelerator is pressed firmly to the floor at all times. You can't really categorise the album, the diversity of the songs is too great. Walter VanheuckelomCONCERTMONKEY.BE


Exciting intensity and presence throughout. Have you ever sat at a table with Lou Reed, Seasick Steve, Elliott Murphy, Calvin Russell, Johnny Dowd, John Trudell and Lee Clayton then just rejoice. It’s well produced, hard-hitting and down-to-Earth …and the life experience hits you as sharply as does his guitars. This record is something you really do not want to miss! This is more than 220 volts, so be careful not to burn your fingers. Johnny Andreassen  BLUES NEWS NORWAY


Bluesy vocals with a nicely understated guitar. The writing and production are stunning. Just goes to show how rich we are in this country when it comes to talent. Outstanding. 10/10 INDEPENDENT MUSIC SHOWCASE


A different approach to the blues whilst still retaining a blues core that once you hear it has you hooked and that continues throughout the entire album, weaving and twisting in and out of blues and blues rock and some psychedelia..It’s unusual, uplifting…joyous  Gets the blood pumping BLUES MATTERS
