"The potential energy lingers in the air like a thunderstorm waiting to break. As sure as the sun will rise tomorrow, there’ll be more Fraser A Gorman goodness to come."
"A concoction of old-west country tunes and Australian charm-of-youth conversation, local boy Fraser A Gorman is both fresh and familiar. Armed with his beautiful, violin-playing accomplice, Gorman could have been lifted from the pages of the Oklahoma! songbook"
Clementine Lloyd, TheMusic.com.au
"He’s no longer the same folk ‘n’ blues performer you may have seen playing to a desolate band room at The Old Bar a year or so ago. He’s more established, experienced and in demand, having recently supported legendary international acts Simone Felice and Mark Lanegan. Sans band, he opens with an emotive blues song to a silent room, the crowd hanging on every lyric."
