Richard Cuccaro,

Blues News - Kalamazoo Festival Review by Tim Richards (NZ)

"Thirty Years is actually one of my favorite songs on the Roadtrip Nation soundtrack this year. Roadtrip Nation is not just a TV Show, but a movement with an entire life-on-the-road, forward thinking, grassroots culture behind it... The reason Angelo M.'s song Thirty Years is not only in our PBS series, but in the RTN soundtrack as well is because of how well it fits into that culture. When I hear a song that I know I could listen to cruisin' down I-40 in a big green rv, I know it's the right song for RTN. "

Blake Hodges,
Music Supervisor Roadtrip Productions
Creators of the PBS TV Series Roadtrip Nation (US)

"Angelo M has a great sense of style. His guitar playing and vocals compliment each other wonderfully! Switching careers and focusing on music at this stage in his life was exactly the right move!"

- Mel Thiel, 91.9 WNTI (US)

"His performances have evolved into multitasking enterprises; he breathes hurricanes through a harmonica, plays the devil out of his guitar, kicks a tambourine propped against his chair and sings when it's convenient."

- Mike Caggeso, York Daily Record (US)
