“A CD by which you can hardly sit still. You never get tired of listening to this.”

François Braeken

Rootsville Magazine, Belgium 2009


"One of the first guitar soloists I tried to copy was Rick Taylor. His playing on the Willie P. Bennett album, "Hobo's Taunt" was and is an inspiration to me.  And he still plays great- with the extra years of experience and gravitas only making him better.  And that's just the playing part... He's still writing and singing and performing like a demon too!"

“A force to be reckoned with - his unique style of the blues,

encompassing the soul of the genre, and a set of pipes that will have you sitting back with your jaw on the floor.”
