"Payton’s music could have been recorded by Lomax.  He is a storyteller with a relaxed, introspective, almost conversational, style, who plays stark, intimate blues – his deep vocals and haunting falsetto underpinned by his own, often, eccentric guitar picking and Robert Scott’s hardly noticeable, but nevertheless essential drums, percussion and keyboards. This is a wonderful CD from an exceptional talent that will delight all lovers of 'Old Country Blues.' "
