“It’s soul with some twang. And a jazzy hook. Not too much pop. Just a tad. The ever-changing recipe for the perfect song keeps Fountain Inn native JL Fulks on the prowl for the hottest new lick.” - Nikki Withington
“It’s clear JL has a knack for turning everyday life into the art that is The Blues. Maybe an even greater talent is his ability to make six strings tell their own story as clearly as any lyrics” - Duane Deats
