What critics are saying...
"His fifth record, Solid Sender, rips up his (previous) formula and finds new ground to stand on. It’s still a loving tribute to the roots music he holds dear, but this time he’s opened the production wide, welcoming drums and electric piano and upright bass and lots of studio magic, and strapping on an electric guitar for most of the running time. Even with all this, Solid Sender is still a Greg Boerner record, only more so."
"On his 5th album, Greg Boerner continues his slow-but-steady proof of talent ready to eclipse “local hero” status. Solid Sender has ample depth and an undercurrent to pull you in. Compared to 2011’s Prophetstown and prior work, Boerner’s sonic palette has evolved into something that is still sparse and focused, but also richer."
"Greg Boerner is a natural troubadour. His personality as a singer-songwriter and finger-picking skills are the coveted kind that can bring a chattering room to hushed attention with just voice and acoustic guitar."
"Everything he's doing on guitar makes your ears perk up - lesser guitarists could play this song and not get the feel of it even remotely right."
"His penchant for honest, exposed, often seductive lyrics coupled with brilliant guitar playing and beautiful melodies earns him the mark of a truly talented storyteller."
"When it comes to top flight original blues, ballads, and folk, you won't find a more skilled practitioner around these parts than singer-songwriter/guitarist Greg Boerner."
