“This is an album that taps straight into the core of Wood’s formidable artistry.”   Peter Quinn, JazzWise

“I fell in love with this man’s voice the moment I heard it.  He is the essence of soul and blues.  I am so lucky to have sung on the same stage as him.” – Paloma Faith

“Charlie Wood is that rarest of combinations, a singer who’s as soulful as his songwriting is smart.   He’s also a wicked piano and B3 player.  He does it all, except ironing.” – Harry Shearer

“(Wood’s) writing is exceptional, the often-ruminative songs featuring well-honed, literate lyrics… written with the technical precision and linguistic flair of a classic from the Great American Songbook.” – Trevor Hodgett, R2 Magazine

“Remember the first time you heard Dylan, or Springsteen, or Costello, or Waits?  Charlie Wood delivers that same jolt.” – Jazz Times

“…a lean, unblemished voice which has the high, lonesome timbre of a dedicated bluesman.” – New Statesman

“Grade-A natural beauty.” – Mojo Magazine

“Charlie Wood embodies hepcat worldliness and barroom empathy; he’s got style but also the wisdom that gives it heftiness.” – Jazz Review

“Every jazz fan likes to have a best-kept secret but if there’s any musical justice, we should see a lot more of Charlie Wood.”  Mark Gilbert, Jazz Journal
