If you like blues or southern rock this guy will be your new favorite.
J Benton
Anyway, people started talking about that and so I thought, well, I'll just stick with what people are buzzing about so that's really what I'm doing.
To The Max"Bax"
This guy has a unique voice, unusual instrumentation and bluesy sound that grabs you quickly.

From the first bars this promises to be a great find. With stong tunes, great lyrics, fantastic guitar playing and a well matched voice, Lincoln Durham is the real deal. Playing this collection to death right now and can't wait for more in the future. Hope he comes to the UK soon - I will be first in line for tickets. Cannot recommend this enough to those who like blues/americana at its best

If you like blues or southern rock this guy will be your new favorite. Sounds like the White Stripes, B.B. King, Dire Straits, and a touch of AC/DC all rolled into one. It's a very unique sound, but at the same time it's familiar. Great voice, great guitar, great talent all around.

If you like Ray Wylie Hubbard's style on "Grifter's Hymnal" then you will like this artist. BTW, Ray Wylie helped produce this CD and thinks very highly of this young artist. I can see why, they seem to be cut from the same mold, unique vocals and great writing skills. Both storytellers to the "nth" degree. Durham credits Hubbard, his musical mentor with teaching him a lot of what he knows.

Durham is the real deal, authentic blues-roots music for the soul. When he started out, Durham never intended to be a solo act. His solo show has been well received. "People really started talking about it and really digging it because it's a lot of volume. I don't mean loud as in `hey, I'm going to knock you down with this.' It's just a full sound. Anyway, people started talking about that and so I thought, well, I'll just stick with what people are buzzing about so that's really what I'm doing. It was never fully intentional; it just kind of happened," Durham explained.

I read...

"There's the redoubtable Rick Richards on drums, a sound that is central to the songs here, and a whole lot of guitar, dirty, slip-sliding, barbed wire guitars. Many of them are vintage and their heritage shows. These are guitar that have been played and loved. Durham is joined by fellow string seductors Jeff Plankenhorn, Derek O'Brien, Ray Wylie Hubbard and George Reiff. All add tone, texture and tenor to the songs on offer. Songs delivered in Durham's suitably sand-papered and distressed denim voice. These songs resonate with these times. They speak of "living this hard" and of "people of the land". They are swamp-drenched, wrecking-yard blues and rock 'n' roll vignettes drawn from the darker corners but strangely addictive and energizing."...By Lonesome Highway, Dec 9, 2011.

A great album, although not quite what I expected. I've seen Lincoln live, but it's been a few years. The album isn't as raw as his live performances, which I guess should be expected, but the rawness of Lincoln's music is what I dig about it... and some of that just gets lost on the album.

This guy is amazing . He is much better live as well. A good mix of country, soul, the blues, and rock. If you don't believe me... YouTube him.

Lincoln is a one man band and has become my fav artist over night. I just heard of his music over a week ago and are amazed at how perfect his music with blue grass. He has a combination of bad ass blues guitar mixed with rock, a great voice, and fantastic lyrics. If you haven't heard his music, you should drop what ever you are doing and take a look on Youtube. You will be amazed.
