Praise for Greg Hoy
Divide & Conquor – “Live, Hoy is like Jack White AND Jack Black rolled into one… I was addicted the first time I heard it.”
The Big Takeover – “Drop the needle anywhere on these 4 sides and you’re greeted with Hoy’s crunchy, meaty, dirt discharging guitars & swaggering Mick Jagger/David Johansen-like growl. Hoy’s boys kick out plenty of 70’s punk, rnb, blues inspired jams.”
Red Red Wine on a Sunday – “This 2 LP set is deep – like peeling layers off an onion – each song is a revelation!”
