‘The word cool is often bandied about carelessly these days and doesn’t sound that well, cool anymore but if there was ever a band that could put the cool back into cool then it would be have to be Hip Route. These guys are effortlessly cool, hip and funky- the moment Jim Blair strikes up the old slide guitar , the heads turn, the feet tap and then the rest of the band storm headfirst into groove.’ – Cleverhead Promotions, Bristol
‘Hip Route have a universal sound that appeals to all lovers of real music’ – Blues Matters Magazine
