Eric Lambert has an awesome voice.-Sarah Sawyers-WSVC Radio-Richlands VA Immediately you will be blown over by the sensational playing of Eric Lambert...the debut CD is great for the guitar playing alone. D.Robinson-Music Scene-Chicago IL A CD in the true 70's tradition of guitar-solo oriented rock and roll, with a general upbeat Allman Brothers/SRV boogie feel about it.A.M.-Splendid E-zine-White River Junction, VT Lambert is an extremely accomplished player and his songs more than do justice to his inspirers. The bluesy Hard Luck Man, the searing slide driven Dirt Brown Pillow and the very Allman influenced Let Me See You Smile are all standouts. Additionally they show him to be a solid vocalist. Mick Skidmore-Relix Magazine-Quincy Mass Eric Lambert plays guitars. To accompany that he also provides a voice that instantly suggests rusty blues rock. He's got it all, the riffs, the jazz, the funk and a complete band to go along with him. Jenni Clapshaw-Community Radio 2TLC 100.3 FM Yamba Australia.
