Comparisons to Led Zeppelin's “Kashmir," and Even Ravel's “Bolero"

M Music & Musicians Magazine, Performer Magazine, Sound + Vision, USA TODAY, BlogCritics and others rave for David Rhodes' Debut CD

National magazines have begun to weigh in on guitarist/singer/composer David Rhodes' debut 'Bittersweet,' and the response has been extraordinary:

Sound + Vision Magazine raved, “Bittersweet is deep and thoughtful, to be sure, but it's very much a rock album—the type that Gabriel, Sting and David Byrne just aren't making anymore."

M Music & Musicians Magazine praised Rhodes' career as “prodigious," and buzzed about his “knack for melding mood and melody."

BlogCritics added these seminal references: “"If It Could Only Be That Easy," for example, a song that was featured as a USA Today pick of the week in July, builds up a rhythmic crescendo with a world music vibe reminiscent of Led Zeppelin's “Kashmir," and even Ravel's “Bolero." It is the kind of music, regardless of the lyrics, that won't get out of your head."

Other recent or upcoming coverage includes features in Guitar Player Magazine and Performer Magazine, Examiner.com, Melodic and more. After decades working and performing alongside some of the industry's most respected artists, Rhodes has stepped into the spotlight on his solo CD 'Bittersweet'—a dramatic ten-song collection of rock songs with World music undertones, all fueled by his incendiary electric guitar and riveting vocals. Rhodes recently completed a U.S. Tour, opening for Cyndi Lauper. His CD is available now via iTunes, Amazon and elsewhere.
