'It's still refreshing in this age of lazy, post-punk nihilism to find a voice so open, honest, and earnest. Whether he's relating a secret to a new friend, or telling an old girlfriend to beat it, he never goes for the ultra-hip, 'let-me-mess-with-your-mind' approach, opting instead for a very direct, very heartfelt delivery... a passionate new performer.' - Neil Fagan Performing Songwriter Magazine If By Yes TOP 12 D.I.Y. Pick, Sept/Oct 1998 'Phil Norman has no problem keeping your attention. His voice is perfect for the folk realm, rich and intertwined with his companion, his guitar.' - Alex Steininger, InMusicWeTrust.com 'He beats up on his guitar and sings an emotional set. The packed house is especially quiet, then the applause erupts.' - Chris Henson, Roanoke Times 'He steps up to the mic with his fireball of energy and demands to be heard... a new, welcome voice.' - Jane Gabrielle, Big Lick Music Productions 'Norman takes his honest, emotional songwriting style and erects it in the sidewalk, squarely in your path. [He] doesn't just wear his heart on his sleeve, he reaches out and wipes it on yours... when Phil Norman sings, people will listen.' - Curtis Lynch, Playgrounds Magzine Columbus, GA 'His voice is as smooth as molasses, and his all-original songs make you say, 'Yeah, that's me' with lyrics that everyone relates to. YES, HE'S THE NEXT HOTTEST THING' - Anastasia Mooney, Fly Magazine.
