Waiting For The World To End has received sparkling reviews (see below).

What The Media Has Been Saying About “Waiting For the World To End”

“Fourteen fantastic songs that will keep you grooving song after song. And don’t forget about the great axe work by Dave!”

“Backed by seasoned cats with credits (Stevie Wonder, Van Morrison) and armed with an able voice and a brittle guitar tone, Dave Widow lives to rock the blues… the key to Widow’s appeal is he understands the blues is not about being down, it’s about surviving and living life. A calling card for well-deserved live gigs and perhaps a film placement.”

“If you’re a Blues lover and dig the same things I dig, you are gonna LOVE Dave Widow’s new CD “Waiting For The World To End.” The lineup (no pun intended) on this CD is truly incredible.”

“One of the finest blues discs I’ve heard all year…his vocals are prominent all over the album, such as on opening cut “Bluesman” as well as the dazzling “Reach Out.” He can also groove to the first degree, as he shows on “Leave A Piece Of Me” and “Second Hand Love.” Well worth checking out!”

“On Waiting For The World To End Dave Widow sings and plays a vibrant guitar, while his band provides plenty of rhythm…comfortable blues with a message that we can all appreciate.” SOUTHLAND BLUES
