Blues News and Reviews:
"One of the stellar tracks on "Bottle Full of Blues," is titled "Wash My Blues Away." It's an emotional, soul-baring, gospel-informed slice of soulful blues." Dave Richards ~Erie Showcase Magazine. 'If there's anything to be said about the nitty gritty sounds of Jeff Fetterman it is that he can actually play a guitar...with it's Stevie Ray Vaughan meets Eric Clapton influenced sounds, Jeff Fetterman's honesty and heart prevail through his music proving he's an ordinary man with a passion for rock and roll.'
~Byron Nash, Pittsburgh's Rock-n-roll reporter
'Long Hard Road features bluesy harmonica, gritty vocals, and surprisingly soulful back up female vocals...The songwriting is perfunctory at times, they go where you expect. He puts a lot of Springsteen styled heart into charging tunes like Hellbound Train, Ride With the Wind, and sparkling Real Love... It's Honest stuff.'
~Dave Richards, Showcase Magazine, Erie PA.
