“West's voice reminds me of a slightly more polished version of Phosphorescent, think Tom Petty riffs with Eric Clapton level solos.” - No Country For New Nashville
"The EP’s first single, ‘It Ain’t Right’, is a gorgeously meditative tune with a warm Laurel Canyon vibe.” - NUVO Indy’s Alternative Voice
“Just like the music on his latest EP, The Cause and the Cure, the Johnzo West live show highlights true musicianship.” - LA Music Blog
“A shiny new roots band...reminds me of I See Hawks In LA and no less than Elvis Costello.” - My Old Kentucky Blog
