"Sam Price is best known as the irrepressible pogoing bass player of the Honey Island Swamp Band. Sam also has some mad songwriting and
vocal skills and it shows with the release of his latest project, Sam Price
and the True Believers."
"Songwriting is the key to this gem of a record. Sam has an innate skill to infuse jazz and blues on top a bed of roots rock. Think early Steve Winwood. The arrangements are tight. The vocals are clean(especially the backgrounds) and the lyrics are meaningful. Signature track is “Down to You” which features a killer trumpet solo by Eric Benny Bloom."
– DERRICK FREEMAN
"...Allen Toussaint, whose spirit is all over Price’s disc....Musically, it harks back to the deep soul on his
’70s Reprise albums, and Price’s vocal
here has some of the same inflections."
– BRETT MILANO
"Price’s new album
is an antidote for
these times we are living in. Relentlessly positive..."
– JAY MAZZA
"Their first release is a five-track jubilee of infectious songs and note-worthy musical performances."
– PHILLIP SMITH
"Price and crew share the love and positive vibes in music that’s slinky and funky with a groove you can move to. The group’s self-title debut CD percolates with juicy Hammond B3 riffs, big chunky bass lines (courtesy of Price himself), skiffling drums and soulful vocals. Put on your party shoes and prepare to dance..."
– KATI SCHARDL
"So from the heart, it hurts." – ROCKIN' JAKE
