amongst all the amplifiers and studio embellishments... Herman proves to be
a seasoned storyteller above all, as well as an accomplished guitarist." -
Blues Revue Magazine

genre he grew up listening to and who live on through the evocative, haunting
acoustic slide-guitar style he plays." - The Reporter, San Diego, CA

"...plays a powerful variety of hard-driving acoustic blues, a crowd
pleaser." - Mississippi Valley Blues News

"...a mean, clean guitar picker." - San Francisco Examiner
