This is HOT!!! (Little Gina)

Stevie Bee, The Unsigned Show
Sound like they (Wily Bo Walker & Rattlin Bone) should be leading the parade up Main St in New Orleans...pretty damn awesome!!!

Mona Tabbara of London Evening Standard
The night ended triumphantly with 14 piece rock and roll burlesque gypsy voodoo jazz from Rattlin Bone, complete with deranged clowns. Soulful backing singers, a jazz band and the raspy rocker vocals of Wily Bo Walker demonstrated the band’s ability to transcend the boundaries of musical genre and create a sound uniquely theirs. The band’s cover of Merle Travis’ Sixteen Tons was a crowd pleaser, keeping the audience on their feet after a night of heavily-involved shape-throwing.

Absolutely gorgeous, works so well with both of their voices and the orchestration is absolutely astounding....this track is absolutely wonderful.....

Kellie Jasper on Kat's Trax, Hot Mix Radio

Eric Palmer for ArenaCast
When I first heard it my reaction was wow!
It's just such a big sound....very powerful, very strong sound and it's a great song

Florence Lamb for Review Posse
Dirty, horn-filled boogie perfectly balanced by smoky, husky, whiskeyed vocals. Hot band on a dirty old-school Saturday night…
Wily Bo Walker is ratcheting up the big band blues sound and raising the bar in hard hitting R&B. An instant classic “Drive” the debut track from Wily’s soon to drop CD “Moon Over Indigo” is driving it forward and turning up the heat. With Wily’s classic strong vocals and occasional blues wolf growl leading the way, spiced up with swinging horns and rocking string sections, on top of a solid rock foundation and you have got a great song with a lot of party energy and “Drive” captured within. We dig it and you will to. Giving you a glimpse of what awaits us on Wily’s new CD for the time being we will have to be satisfied with getting this track at iTunes until the whole disc is available. Go Get “Drive” Now!

Diego RJ on El Sotano, Radio 3, Spain
Drive goes more into soul R&B music but with a very special touch.
I have listened to it 6 or 7 times one after another. Not too many songs get that from me.
Wily Bo Walker has a really big thing going on…The sound is amazing.

Review of 'Drive'
Wily Bo Walker's gravelly, bourbon-soaked voice impresses on this debut single from forthcoming album 'Moon Over Indigo'.
His vocals are bolstered by a punchy, soulful brass courtesy of the New York Horns and Keith Mack's surf rock guitar riffs, forming a sound which makes for a groundbreaking amalgamation of genres.

Astrid Haigh Smith on Radio UK International
Angels In The Night…got one of those Joe Cocker voices' that makes the hair stand up on the back of your neck...love it, love it, love it.... featuring Kareña K, beautiful voice also...

New York Brass Blog
Wily Bo Walker’s voice is stratospheric.
The more I listen to him sing You Don’t Know What Love Is, the more I understand the subtle interplay between melancholy and passion, the yin/yang at the heart of this Jazz Standard.

'Fantastic Song' (When The Angels Call Your Time)

Mason Ramsey on Rock & Roll Heaven (KLSX Radio)
…I'm sure I will see him on LETTERMAN SOON! I know that's what I told the listeners last night! Unmistakable sound of a great musician and music…
