“Tomasz’s glowing technical ability is matured to the point that one senses he doesn't need to think... he just performs, allowing him to produce music that sounds as if it's being played by a pianist well beyond his years.” Mike Gates, UK VIBE
“An incredible writer and singer who delivers pure and raw emotions” – Linley Marthe (The Joe Zawinul Syndicate)
“Guthrie Govan is known as one of the most amazing players that have ever picked a guitar. Moreover, I am pretty sure that you won’t find any other musician with such level of versatility and unbelievably distinctive playing style these days. Impressive technique combined with world-class musicality and incredible improvisation skills are some of the reasons to call him a guitar hero. Govan is actually much more than that.”
