FALL CHANGES is MOJO's #1 Blues Album of 2008!

" * * * * ...these guys could strip down the engine of a soulbluesmobile and put it back together blindfold."
– MOJO, Blues Album of the Month, October 2008

"One of the most inventive songwriters in modern blues music."
- ALL MUSIC GUIDE

"Bergson's stirring voice and glorious guitar command immediate attention."
- BLUES REVUE

"Gut-busting, horn-bedecked NY blues."
- MOJO

"Gowanus Heights" #5 on The MOJO Playlist, December 2007

"This magnificent collection by Chris Bergson, recorded at Levon Helm’s Woodstock studios, follows The Band in drawing intuitively and seamlessly from blues, country, folk, funk, soul and jazz.  Bergson has the kind of voice that can be sepia-tinted, whiskey soaked or nicotine stained to fit the requisite style and mood, standing alongside Gregg Allman, Dr. John, Van Morrison and Danko / Helm.  A neatly balanced set of self-penned numbers and entirely justified covers (‘Are You Experienced’ is a revelation!) are immaculately played by a tight and energetic band complimenting excellent guitar work with washes of organ and honking sax.  Crisply but roundly produced,
Fall Changes is an undeniable pointer to a talent with major league potential."
- LEICESTER BANGS (UK)

"Chris Bergson is a serious talent.  Bergson gives early notice to the listener on the album's opening cut, 'Gowanus Heights', of his prowess as both a performer and songwriter.  With a horn section that would do the old Stax crew proud, Bergson lures the listener into his world of jazz influenced blues and doesn't let up until the final cut... both jazzy and bluesy with a slight dash of rock and massive amounts of melody, Fall Changes is a treat."
- LIVING BLUES“

It takes a confident musician to pack his band with some of the hottest players in New York City, but singer/songwriter/guitarist Chris Bergson is equal to the company he keeps.  Starting with the rocking “Gowanus Heights” from his recently released album Fall Changes, the young virtuoso took charge of the stage.  He growled out the vivid lyrics about Brooklyn street life and launched a series of dazzling flights of fancy on the guitar, playing as organically as if the instrument were a third arm.”
- BLUES REVUE

"Chris Bergson plays the kind of guitar you can build a house on…it's B.B. meets Steve Cropper meets John Scofield."
- ROLL Magazine

"Fresh and inventive...a tour de force."                     
- ELMORE

"Seriously street-smart songwriting and Allman-esque vocal prowess..."
- GIBSON.COM“

Rootsy and funky...brilliant playing from the Chris Bergson Band...highly recommended!"
- THE BAND WEBSITE

"A small masterwork...a candidate for year's best."
- ROOTSTIME"

Tremendous! Fall Changes showcases the Chris Bergson Band's personal blend of contemporary Americana, highlighting Bergson's crafted writing, some soulful vocals and the first class musicianship of a class band. "
- BLUES MATTERS (UK) 

"One of the best things I have heard this year...a sound rooted in blues - but diverse enough to have jazzy and classic rock leanings."
- BLUES IN THE NORTHWEST (UK)

“Chris Bergson is a dynamic, masterful guitar player...one of the most impressive new blues releases I’ve heard in years.”
