There are singers who sing and there are singers whose sheer power of expression can knock you off your feet. Eli 'Paperboy' Reed falls firmly into the latter category ... [he] threatens to be one of the defining voices of the year - MOJO MAGAZINE "A whole-hearted son of soul ... Amy Winehouse better watch her back." - VILLAGE VOICE "[Reed's] blazing soul get[s] the pulse racing and the spirit testifying. The brilliantly nicknamed singer combines the sob of Al Green with the beef of Otis Redding, and boasts a band, The True Loves, who look young enough to be in some emo group but have better taste." - MOJO MAGAZINE "[A] star on the rise ... Reed stunned the crowd [as he] screeched and hollered through a no-holds-barred set of originals that could be easily mistaken for lost Stax classics." - THE BOSTON HERALD
