“Boom! is a fun and well-crafted studio album that highlights the work of a solid group of musicians, the talent of a gifted singer/songwriter and a collection of memorable songs that may help Hambridge finally find the kind of commercial success as a solo artist that he has so often received as a producer and composer in the past.” - J. Blake, American Blues News

“Roots rock is the new country and ex-Bostonian Tom Hambridge is the style’s current MVP. His voice has grown some growl and sprung a drawl, but both suit him well as he delivers these roadhouse anthems with double-shots of conviction.” – Ted Drozdowski, Boston Phoenix

”I have a new travel companion. Tom Hambridge’s new album, Boom!, has been in heavy rotation on my car stereo system. It is the type of pulse pounding blues/rock, with a touch of country here and there, that is perfect company for honking down the highway on a summer’s day.” – David Bowling, Blog Critics

“It just might be true that the best rock ‘n’ roll music today is coming out of Nashville, Tennessee, the home of country music. Tom Hambridge’s new CD, Boom!, makes a convincing argument for the truth to that statement. Boom! showcases Tom in all his disguises– Robert Carraher, The Dirty Lowdown
