"Blues In Britain" said.....
'Albert King, Albert Collins and Johnny ‘Guitar’ Watson is evident, but his influences become drawn into a style all his own as he alternates between plectrum and finger-picking, mixing fluid runs with staccato stabs and searing, soaring licks... There is no doubt that this young man’s a talented musician with style, energy and originality.He posses the kind of humility and sense of humour that puts an audience at its ease and allows him to do what he does best – play some killer blues guitar:. 
 
'Wilfully, delightfully untraditional, the PAUL GARNER BAND's  latest album " What Colour Will You See’?  is an epic, ‘freeform, chronologically-mongrel triumph. The band is Pink Floyd for the 21st Century. Most importantly it’s refreshingly, unrestrainedly ambitious.”

.....whilst "Blues Matters" said....
“It’s always a pleasure when you hit upon a CD that takes you by total surprise, especially when it’s home grown talent. The Paul Garner Band are a young band from London, and, on this, their debut release, they show anincredible maturity, with a unique and refreshing approach to the Blues. The quality of musicianship is mightily apparent from the off, with heavy doses of fantastic Hammond organ interspersed with Paul Garner's excellent stinging lead guitar breaks.”
 
Top  London blues venue "Ain't Nothin' But Blues" said....
“Arguably the most talented guitarist in London. Paul’s sound is completely unique and fuses a number of genres to create his very own version of the Blues.”

Steven Verhoeven. reviewing the  another PAUL GARNER  CD  for  Holland's "Bobtje Blues" said.... 
“Once in a while, you get a real masterpiece to review, a record you normally would never had heard… Such a record is ‘Love vs Blues’ by Paul Garner. ...you can not deny the strength of Paul as a musician, and I’m not talking about his sublime guitar- playing only. The man owns one of the most magnificent voices I heard on CD this year... The sum of his qualities as a musician and his exceptional talent for songwriting is incredibly high.”
 
Well, you don't me to add anything to this! Looks like we're in for a real treat!
