Nominated for Vintage Guitar Magazine Hall of Fame Album of the Year "JON HERINGTON, "TIME ON MY HANDS" A monster guitarist, But who knew he was such a good songwriter? Great songs in a variety of genres, short and succinct solos, and vocals to match the lyrics make this one of the best albums not just of the year, but of the past decade."
Vintage Guitar Magazine Hall of Fame
“Solo records by session guitarists too often hang gobs of great guitar on flimsy compositional frames, or they attempt to emphasize the songs by stinting on the expected guitar fireworks. Jon Herington’s work with Steely Dan, Boz Scaggs and Michael McDonald qualifies him as a sessioneer extrordinaire, yet he deftly avoids both traps on his fourth record “Time On My Hands”, by serving up clever, tightly constructed tunes shot through with searing solos and studded with 6-string ear candy” Michael Ross, Guitar Player Magazine
“For a player who’s normally associated with pristine tone, it’s heartening that Jon Herington still enjoys adding a big dollup of filth to his sound. …Through cascading phrases of crisp, imaginative lead guitar, Herington shows off the high-class chops he’s honed during more than a decade with the Dan.” Jamie Dickson, Guitarist Magazine
“Herington’s voice is perfect for the songs. It’s instantly recognizable and is the ideal match for lyrics that are at turns funny, clever, sarcastic, and plaintive. The production is crisp and clean in a way that albums just aren’t anymore. In fact this is the kind of record that doesn’t exist in many places these days. It’s soulful, with a varied set of great songs that showcase a multitude of influences and let the musicians shine. And it’s easily one of the best records of the year.” John Heidt, Vintage Guitar Magazine
