"One of the only guys in the world that can really play the traditional stuff right."
-Kim Wilson

"Of the 65 or so great guitar players I’ve had in my band, since the early 60’s, Nathan James is easily the A#1 hands-down stand-out!"
-James Harman

"Nobody else these days plays so many styles so well, be it old time country blues, low down Memphis or Chicago blues, or even uptown string bending blues."
-Rick Holmstrom
