What critics are saying

The back cover of Brad Wilson's new CD, Hands On The Wheel (Blues Boulevard Records) reads that the California guitarist "plays high-octane rocked-up Blues." Yeah, and Moby Dick was a big fish. That statement is the only understated item about this electrifying CD. Brad Wilson rocks the house, y'all.....pure and simple. If you're looking for a disc to plug into your car stereo, crank up to 11 with the windows and top down, look no further.

Graham Clarke
Blues Bytes Magazine

Sometimes referred to as the "Billboard Chart of the Blues," Roots Music Report gives Brad Wilson's new album, Hands On the Wheel, their highest rating: 5 Stars!

"Brad Wilson sings with a passion and his new CD is simply a splendid example that we hope more blues up and comers will choose to follow. If this release doesn't get you jumpin, then your jumper is broke."

Robert Bartosh
Roots Music Report

When the opening riff of "Hands On The Wheel" begins, it will be hard to put down Brad Wilson's album, a driving Blues/Rock hybrid that beckons people to lean in closer to the speaker and listen carefully to this unique mixture of tasty guitar riffs that need to be noticed, and the wailing vocals represent all that that sounds cool. In fact, this album should be wearing its own pair of sunglasses!

Wilson convinces not only as a singer and songwriter but also as a guitar player, and just burns down a firework with his six string guitar doing Roadhouse and Bluesrock.
