Mike Varney, founder of Shrapnel Records Group and Blues Bureau International says "Carlos Guitarlos is one of the greatest Blues/Americana guitarists of our time and he might just be a better singer than guitar player."
Cadillac Zack, of Southern California Blues Society says "Carlos Guitarlos is possibly the most prolific and soulful of American roots songwriters and performers today, if not all time"
Critic Jonny Whiteside says: "They don't call him Guitarlos for nothing--the cat wields his ax with flabbergasting skill, a mix of sophisticated technique and sheer musicality that allows him to employ a long-range artistic reach spanning a spectrum of impressive breadth, depth and height.
Technically, Guitarlos is unrivaled--he's capable of playing melody, an intricate bass line and beating out hot percussion all at once, creating a full-blown sound that positively dazzles. With a bottomless repertoire that demonstrates an intimate knowledge of almost every vernacular American music form, he also delivers it in a wildly idiosyncratic fashion that is as undeniably authentic as the hard-knock life he's led."
