Lazer Lloyd on his music and influences...
“As a young songwriter and guitar player, I loved Neil Young with his super sensitive acoustic and singing just suddenly firing it up with searing guitar. I first heard Stevie Ray Vaughn live at 14 and my father also took me to hear Santana live - those were life-changing experiences - seeing masters who performed on a level of prayer through music on stage. That set my mind and heart on playing music for life.”
“Lazer Lloyd is a remarkable performer but even more, he has a magical charisma and aura on stage that is both wonderful and unique. He lit up our crowd at the Mammoth Festival with great songs, incendiary guitar, an amazing presence and message.” Jim Vanko , Co-Producer 23rd Annual Festival at Mammoth Lakes
“Fasten your seatbelts!” wrote 1970s Rolling Stone rock music sage Gary von Tersch of the self-titled "Lazer Lloyd" CD. He added, “I’m impressed by Lazer’s tight compositions”, “deeply expressive writing, plangent vocals and crackerjack guitar and harmonica”.
"He puts soul into every note he sings and plays." Tahoe Onstage
“Razor sharp guitar and exuberant vocals.” Downbeat
"Lloyd’s guitar skills are impeccable, with a rich, deep vocal delivery...a consummate musician, writer, and storyteller" Don & Sheryl Crow (Nashville Blues Society)
Vintage Guitar magazine featured him as a talent to watch showing off his chops on "tough blues-rockers, soul ballads, and funky Hendrix-inspired rock".
Elmore Magazine´s Jim Hynes compares Lazer to “Santana at his best” Canadian music & arts veteran writer, Bob Mersereau calls him "Muddy Waters on electric steroids."
