"Lucky Kinda Guy" solo CD


▪ Pierre Robert (WMMR-FM): “Lucky Kinda Guy shows us an entirely different side of this extraordinarily talented musician. He's found his own unique voice, and it works! This is not folk music or country music. It's not blue grass or even rock 'n roll. It's all of that and much more.”

▪ Rob Hyman (The Hooters): “Every note and every word is honest and sincere - he speaks the truth with pure emotion and no hesitation.”

▪ Jon Takiff (Philadelphia Daily News): “Pensive, playful and smartly executed roots-rocking music. We always knew John had the instrumental chops. The solid songs and full-bodied vocals are quite the pleasant surprise.”

▪ Debbi Calton (WMGK-FM): “On this record, you realize how much of the Hooters’ sound can be directly traced back to John: the mandolin, the mandola, the dobro, and lap steel. John brings it all to this collection of songs that proclaim self-confidence, satisfaction and security.”

▪ Bruce Warren (WXPN-FM): “The fabulously talented John Lilley has stepped out with a strong roots rock record that showcases his intimate, warm voice and his musings on life. Go Johnny, go.”

▪ Justin McAneny (Daily Local News): “Stripped down, not quite country, not quite rock and roll, floating somewhere in the middle and tied together with mandolins, steel guitars, sleepy acoustic guitars and organs. It’s an album for long, night time drives with the moon roof open or at home after a night at the bar with that last glass of whiskey and the cigarette you were saving for the next morning. To say the least, it’s intimate.”

▪ Craig Ostroff (Montgomery News): “Filled with introspective, intensely personal songs, Lucky Kinda Guy is a country-tinged, roots-rock journey into Lilley’s mind, his life and, most importantly, into his heart. When Lilley lets that long-hidden voice tell its tales, expect to be taken on a journey through the life of a man who loves music, loves the friendships he’s made through the years, and loves every minute of the life he’s living.”
