Reviewers say about Soaring, "...spicy guitar work just right, crafting the mellow vocals into a James Taylor house, built with pride. Good cd to brighten a day off even further. -Ben Ohmart, Muses Muse CD Reviews
"Incredible instrumental abilities!" Keith Baker
"Just like Zappa, Eulberg has a sense of humor that comes through in his lyrics. "Another Winter's Day in Colorado" and "Orphan Train" are both finely crafted songs that touch the emotions. ...The instrumental work, such as the excellent opening track on Soaring, is a different story-shimmering, clear and clean. Eulberg produces some of the finest acoustic instrumental recordings in the region-a music that goes beyond words." -Tim Van Schmidt, Riff Magazine
"Very good playing, and very thoughtful songwriting. I resonated with his choice of topics, and appreciated his using music to express these sorrowful and blissful parts of human experience." --Bonnie Carol, National Dulcimer champion
"Eulberg is a championship-caliber hammered and mountain dulcimer player."
