Geoffrey's lyrics will make you laugh, cry and think. 'Geoffrey Rutledge comes from the California coastal town of Santa Cruz, an area full of talented artists and singers. He reminds me of the great singer-songwriters prevalent in the late 70's such as James Taylor, B.W. Stevenson and Jesse Winchester. In this day and age, you have not only to be a good songwriter, you have to have a great voice as well. Rutledge qualifies in both departments. His voice is smooth and expressive and his arrangements are varied and allways interesting. His songs have been steadily growing on me. Give this newcomer a listen and allow his warm tender songs to grow on you too.' Bill Frater, Freight Train Boogie 'Refreshingly new ... great presentation. Rod Kennedy, Founder, Kerrville Folk Festival 'Geoffrey Rutledge's Big Top is big stuff. The 12 track ensemble is a fresh, free-spirited romp with enough good, cheery feelings to make grins happen. The glue that binds this fine montage is Rutledge's seemingly open nature and passion for the product. One gets the sense this fellow really loves what he is doing. A rich powerful and lovely experience, easy on the ears and warm in the heart. ' Greg Archer, Arts Editor, Good Times, Santa Cruz.
