"Blues Portrait is an incredible book which documents the Australian Blues Music scene and its amazing musicians." - Peter D. Harper
"If you collect music biographies (or just want a good read) you need this book. It fills a big void in any collection because there are so few books about blues musicians - especially Australian ones. Even if you’re not a blues fan (God forbid!), the book is full of great down-to-earth chats with the likes of Kevin Borich, Bob Spencer, Phil Para and Kerri Simpson, to name but a few."
"I learnt so much and filled in a lot of gaps that I didn’t even know were gaps in this wonderful music scene we have here. So grateful to have this book."
"Certainly can recommend this book to any music enthusiast, no matter what their preferred genre is - the blues is where it all began for the music of today." - Lee
