"FIREWATER! is not just a CD, not just a project, but a manifesto – a thesis nailed to a door to announce the beginning of a new era.... A new generation of blues musicians have planted a flag ...announced they have established a capital city from where they will set out to change the world..."
Bob Horn, Washington Blues Society
“This is the best Portland compilation I’ve ever heard. Every song on it is great.”
---July 11, 2008: Tom Addis, host of the BLUES PALACE, KMHD fm
For those who thought Blues has become simply the music of historians and bikers, FIREWATER! is a testament to its calling to a new generation of truth-seekers. The blues is dead -long live the blues!
--Brad Lee Brenner, Host of KMHD's RIVER CITYJUKE JOINT
"Portland did not get labeled the Blues Capitol of the West for no good reason. FIREWATER! is like a blues music tour through the clubs of this town and it's one hell of a great night."
--Terry Currier, owner of Music Millennium
