What the Critics Are Saying…

A stellar debut from Sun King Rising that finds this exceptional unit shining on 10 delicious tracks. The tasty gumbo cooked up on Delta Tales contains chief ingredients of blues, country, and classic rock spiced up with horns and a hint of prog.
Richard Lynch – Music City Nashville

“He has that untamed quality in his voice that enables him to trek different soundscapes.” “These performances radiate confidence and adept songcraft.”
Daniel Pavlica – The Rocktoligist

“This is a thoroughly enjoyable album, full of memories and great songs, in the tradition of The Band and so many others. Classic rock and soul steeped in Americana, with great songs and vocals, this album is a sheer delight from the first strike of the snare drum to the organ fade out.” Kev Rowland – ReZonatZ

“This is a stomper and a raver that’s sure to take you back even if you weren’t there in the first place. Hot stuff.”
Midwest Records Entertainment

“Ten Americana and Southern Rock songs on which we also hear elements of country, soul, and blues.” “There are some great modern songs such as the rocking Milkweed And Thistle, the ballads Down The Delta Road, In A State Of Grace, and Drive Me To Nashville and the up- tempo song Love Turns Gray with a sublime horn section”
Valsam – RootsTime

“Profoundly resonating storytelling.”
“A complex, yet ultimately rewarding production.” “Showcase Blangero’s emotionally atmospheric vocals”. Russell Trunk’s Exclusive Magazine

“From the South with love and gospel: newly prominent proponent of Americana proclaims his appearance on the scene. Lures the listener in for a soulful refreshment…John’s honeyed pipes make the low tones of Evangeline in the Morning sound hymnal”
Dmitry M. Epstein – DMME
