" ...raw and roady barroom fare with a gritty edge. If your turn-ons include overdriven amplifiers and unassuming, retro blues-rock, this is for you." -Tom Hysop (Blues Revue)
"...although they do live up to the high energy moniker, they stay true to the blues genre." -Peter "Blewzzman" Lauro (Mary4Music)
"... Howard Glazer lays down smoking, razor sharp guitar licks, a rawer version of Buddy Guy." -Bad Dog Blues
"This is electric blues that rocks when it wants to, but also knows the value of restraint and when to ease up a bit." -George P Seedorff (Big City Blues)
"With the EL 34s, Glazer expounds on the basic blues-rock mix, taking it to a higher level while maintaining the integrity of blues." -Les Coles (Daily Yomirui)
" ...as American as a .45 caliber Smith and Wesson, and packin' about the same wallop." -James Doran (Ottawa Blues Society)
Howard Glazer draws upon over two decades of blues and blues-rock guitar expertise on his new release Wired for Sound . Howard continues to push the limits of the blues genre, from acoustic/resonator work to his high energy blues. Wired for Sound retains the same searing electric blues Glazer is known for while moving forward to a new height. Many songs maintain the bands traditional three piece format, with some exciting additions on several tracks: a full horn section and several special guests are featured, including David “Honeyboy” Edwards and John Sinclair on Detroit Blues Party . Howard’s guitar is hot as an EL 34 vacuum tube through out and his adept acoustic resonator slide skills are featured on two tracks. The EL 34s, Bob Godwin on Bass and Steve Kohn on drums, are the current running through these wires, laying down some tight rhythm, Detroit style.
Howard’s debut release Brown Paper Bag garnered national and worldwide attention in both reviews and radio airplay and charted at number 19 on the Living Blues National radio charts. Howard’s second release Liquor Store Legend also received reviews and airplay worldwide.
Howard Glazer has performed extensively both nationally and internationally including festivals/tours in the USA, Japan, Australia, Italy, Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Switzerland, Holland, Greece, England, Germany, Poland, Canada and The Czech Republic, among others.
