I don't get much press anymore, but it wasn't all that long ago.

"While listening to IMRadio.com in my office recently I stumbled upon an amazing guitarist. It's as if I found a treasure that I feel compelled to share with you. His name is James Crouch, he's out of Daytona Beach Florida. I feel very comfortable in saying that he is one of the best that I've ever heard...anywhere! Some have even said that he can play as well as B.B. King and Stevie Ray Vaughn. I'm his newest fan and in agreement and you should hear for yourself. Go to James Crouch's profile page and choose any song, I dare you! And if you really want to feel something, listen to "Serenity" or "Between The Sheets" and I'll bet you'll be a fan too!" by Chuck Atkins

    CRITICAL ACCLAIM FOR JAMES CROUCH

    “Perhaps guitarist James Crouch had good reason to title a song ‘Beck in Blue…’ if legendary guitarist Jeff Beck ever heard this fire-in-the-hole instrumen­tal, a stunned Mr. Beck would be left gasping for breath and blue in the face.”
    - Rick de Yampert (Entertainment Writer), Daytona Beach News-Journal
