"Diehl''s been compared to soft rock and acoustic artists like Jimmy Buffet, The Replacements, REM, and The Eagles."

-The Day, New London, CT


"When I first heard this artist from Boston I was blown away..."

- Americana Roots Radio


"SOLITUDE, reflection... honesty was how American acoustic folk-rock singer and songwriter Will Diehl made his mark in this album... Known as a prolific writer, Diehl has also penned over a thousand songs that deal with love, relationships, environmental and social issues... heavily influenced by styles and ideas prevalent in latter-day New York City..."

-The Star (Malaysia)


"This is beautiful. A simple vocal and guitar number with harmonica lines here and there. Reminds me of the Beatles'' "You''ve Got To Hide Your Love Away." " (review of "She Carried a Magic Lantern"

-Shawn Rhodes (radio broadcaster at NY radio WBAI 99.5 FM)


"He''s spent this year touring the country to promote his recently released solo CD, "i am free", and now he''s bringing it all back home. Diehl''s stripped-down acoustic style is reminiscent of the late Jim Croce; his lyrics more often than not deal with the ambiguities presented by life and love... one thing''s for certain: Will Diehl is the real deal."

-Reno News and Review


"With the release of his new solo CD, titled appropriately enough, "i am free", ... Will Diehl has revitalized his career as a solo acoustic performer. The ... guitarist and singer has returned to a stripped down sound featuring raw acoustic elements, earthy voicing and occasional harmonica play, all of which serve as the unobtrusive supporting cast to the lyrical qualities of his songwriting talents."

-North Lake Tahoe Bonanza Newspaper


"A folky at heart, he has a pop sensibility and... seasoned voice that''s well suited to the breezin'' Stephen Bishop/Jimmy Buffet-type material he pens."

-Reno Gazette Journal


"With a pleasingly raspy voice not unlike John Mellencamp''s, Will Diehl completely covers the Folk-Rock spectrum. Diehl''s haunting acoustic ballads could pass for a darkly-themed James Taylor."

"The wonderful "She carried a magic lantern" reminds me of some Peter Gabriel works, and is a beautiful and suggestive ballad, taken from his "I am free" CD."

-Songs For The Autumn Radio

-The Patriot News, Harrisburg, PA


"Diehl''s voice soars and glides through a vast array of politically correct, deeply personal and environmentally sound songs."

-The Review, Lake Tahoe


"Will Diehl has a nice sound. Acoustic music has always appealed to me, and this song stands with the best of them musically. It is obvious from the start of the track that this guy knows his instrument well. The quality of the music is great, and would keep me listening even if it was instrumental.

Top that off with some good vocals. Will has a voice that sounds like it was meant for this music. Simple as the lyrics may be, they''re honest, and I give a lot of credit for honesty in lyrics. Will sings these words in a way that inflects true soul within them, and that makes "True Love" a keeper.

The Final Word

This is the kind of song to listen to when you need a break from the world. It is beautifully played acoustic guitar, coupled with clean honest vocals, which makes for an enjoyable listening experience. Check out Will Diehl''s "True Love" if you want to hear the bare essentials of music played with some heart."

"Very well played and mellow. Sincere lyrics and sung with sweet feelings. I can see why this artist is so popular on https://www.tradebit.com!" (review of "I Will Always Sing this Song For You"

- Connie Zimmermann''s Mother''s Day Station


"All right, all right. So I admit it, I might seem busy, but there is busy, and there is Will Diehl. Chosen from his 60+ (!) tracks available on https://www.tradebit.com, it''s a wonder we haven''t run across him before. But, as fate plays such a gracious hand, we have the opportunity now. Experience karma sutra in action, the essence of a sand spired cathedral bulges and grows out of the Saharan sands to an ominous and unearthly size. Must be an homage to the Gods, as this track might very well suggest. Beautiful melodic interplay between a fretless bass and an old world relic stringed instrument. Sounds like sitar, so we''ll go with that for now, although we here in the Land of Phrygia Music Recognizance and Referential Side Notations Board will make concessions for error. This track brings in the early sounds of a group called Tri-Atma, who were more interested in melting old world music and instruments with beefy Euro-Jazz. The their added advantage, they were all incredible musicians, multi-faceted in every realm, as is Will Diehl. Take a breather and sit down for this one. " (review of ''In The Shadow of the Great Cliff'' from Will''s Sandman CD)

CSN&Y meet the Strawbs! Very cool!
Nice intro. Good guitar sound. I love the harmonies. Well sung. The harmonica fits nicely. I''d like to hear this with a full band. Almost Crosby Stills Nash & Young, with a little "Strawbs thrown in to the mix and that''s a compliment ... Reviewed by: Fearless_Freap from Lethbridge, Alberta, Canada

i like the mood to this one. great vocals: melody, accuracy, lyrics. i keep waiting for the drums to kick in. it just sounds like the production (which is really nice, by the way) & mixing was done so that other instruments would fit into it. very nice song. i think you sound like Steven Stills with a https://www.tradebit.comiewed by: number99 fr

A hint of Bob Dylan and old Simon and Garfunkel. Well played rhythm and the mixing was well done on this track. Nice Job.- porchdaddies
