SELECTED REVIEWS:

LIVING BLUES MAGAZINE: "Simply breathtaking perfection…Confessin’ My Dues is thoroughly satisfying…the matter is clear: Terry Robb is one of our finest acoustic guitarists today. He’s not just technically sublime; he plays with unrestrained passion that you will feel deep down inside." - Frank Matheis, June/July 2019 Issue 261, pp 57-58

BLUES MATTERS MAGAZINE: It is impossible to overstate the significance and sheer delight of this outstanding, clever and creative album from a true blues legend at the top of his game.” - The Bishop, Aug/Sep 2019, Issue 109, pp 104-106.

VINTAGE GUITAR MAGAZINE: Robb demonstrates blues’ expansiveness and his own versatility, not on a travelogue of covers, but in an album of originals. And it’s difficult to think of anyone that could pull that off as well….In Terry Robb’s hands, it not only makes perfect sense, it makes perfect blues sense.” - Dan Forte, Sep 2019, Vol. 33 No. 11, pg. 108.

CASCADE BLUES ASSOCIATION: “Every release that Terry Robb puts out is a cause to celebrate. There are not many guitarists in the blues or any genre that you can come by that are as detailed and clever with their creativity. Confessin’ My Dues is yet another example of Terry Robb doing what he does best – leaving us with a sense of awe and joy with every note he plays. It’s a winning formula that continues to lead the pack.” - Greg Johnson, president, Feb 2019

TORONTO BLUES SOCIETY: "As if to remind us of his virtuosity, he opens with a jaw-dropping instrumental, “Butch Holler Stomp”. He follows that with a very different but equally amazing “Still On 101”…“Now Vestapol” is an instrumental medley, one of whose pieces is the traditional “Prodigal Son” by Rev. Robert Wilkins, which may well be the best played version you’ll ever hear... “A beautifully recorded and superbly played acoustic blues album." - John Valenteyn co-founder, July 2019
