The lesser known Dane Phillip Smith delivers with his new album "I'll Carry On" an excellent and varied blues album. It's a discovery more than worth it for any blues man! ”

Eric Schuurmans

, ...There is no doubt that he’s a powerful guitarist who’s a great band leader that can deliver any kind of blues tune with a punch or a kiss.”

Blues Blast magazine

La Hora Del Blues... "I'll Carry on" 3 1/2 Stars out of 5... MUCHO MEJOR !!!”
" stand out cuts are the extended work out on Blues That’s All, Living Again with its fine vocal, Walk With Me and the opener Lovers Curse. If this is Dane’s first effort then this augers well for the future. Simple straight forward blues never goes wrong"”

Graeme Scott : review, Blues Matters Magazine

"Blues that's All"...Tastefully played...Vocals are done with passion.....Good Guitar Solo.... Organ too Bruce Igauler President Alligator Records”

Dane Phillip Smith's love for the Blues started at age of 13
Hailing from Columbus Ohio he fell in love with the blues when he first heard Chicago blues on a PBS radio broadcast.


This has had a profound influence on him thru the years
Rather rootsy Acoustic , Deep minor key electric,  a Jazzy ballad
or swinging rockin jump...
he paints everything with a brush of The blues, 
sometimes in heavy strokes and sometimes with fine lines.
With smart heartfelt lyrics, from a life full joy, pain and loss and triumph
That sit comfortably within the vibe of the song.
 No Matter what, or how you categorize it ,
 Old school or new...there is always an underpinning of
 The soul, the Power, Rhythm and Feel of the Blues all its many incarnations..
,,, and that's a good thing!!
