He is the genuine article, perhaps a throwback to the blues men of yore who learned their licks at the knee of legendary patriarch like Charlie Patton. And having done so, serves as one of the last links to the days when cotton was king on the Mississippi Delta." - Larry Benicewicz, Music Monthly.
 
The blues world continues to discover and love the music of Memphis Gold. The Living Blues Magazine, the oldest authoritative Blues Magazine in America placed him on the cover of their February/March 2009 edition, and Gibson Guitars recognized Memphis Gold by awarding him with a custom guitar and endorsement. He was thrilled to perform at the Red, White and Blue Ball, the Official Military Inaugural Ball in January 2009,and 2017 the Heroes Inaugural Ball opening for Brett Micheals. His  music can be found on BB King’s Bluesville on XM Radio, Comcast Music on Demand, and radio stations throughout the world.

This is no flash in the pan artist. He is as they say, the real deal.
