Press and testimonials

 

"A convincing take on a song that should probably be wheeled out more often". Fraser Lewry, Louder (review of "Telegram" single by The Halloween Project & The Fluffy Jackets feat. Ronni Le Tekrø, UK, 2021).

 

"Another great Fluffy Jackets release… certainly tongues will be wagging in praise for all of Something from Nothing”. Kevin Wierzbicki, Antimusic.com (Arizona, USA, 2019)

"A sun-kissed ballad from The Fluffy Jackets. It's got a West Coast-infused heart of gold and a refrain that'll stay in your head for weeks to come". Classic Rock Magazine (Review of the single "Everything Must Change", UK, 2019)

 

"Everything Must Change is a tasteful, tender ballad" Loudersound (UK, 2019)

 

"I just listened to the new Fluffy Jackets album. It sounds really, really good" - Malcolm Dome, Classic Rock Magazine (UK, 2019)

 

"What a wonderful album and combination of musicians" - Get Ready to Rock (UK, 2019)

 

"Shakin' hellhounds from their trail, British bluesmen run from dusk to dawn, from the blue shadows into the house of blue light" - Let it Rock Magazine (Israel, 2014)

 

"The aggregation really hits their stride on the Bad Company-like classic rocker "Why Don't You Smile" where Helge doles out advice to a perennially-depressed fellow over a slow, bluesy lope that's punctuated by a couple of hot guitar solos from Charlton" - Antimusic.com (USA, 2014)

 

"And the winner is The Fluffy Jackets!" - The Blues Hour, Severn FM (UK radio show announcing the "Best Album of the Year" award, 2014)

"This is a rather tasty outfit." - Blues Matters (UK, 2014) 

 

"Impressive blues chugging from The Fluffy Jackets" - Time Out London (UK, 2007)
