"This varied CD is an excellent first solo effort from Giles and is well worth a listen."
--John Mitchell

"There is no half-stepping here friends. Giles took risks and came away with a stellar album."
--Barry Kerzner, chicagoblues.com
"The Stoned Soul album is a varied collection of styles, but the group succeeds as a blues band at heart which presents itself with range and soul."

--Geoff Trubow


"The music has that contemporary soul-blues nexus and Giles sings with the grits and gravy one would expect."
--Grego Applegate, Gapplegate Guitar and Bass Blog
