“Sydneysider Dow wears a perpetual “guitar face” as he twists and contorts body and expression as if to drag every last bit of feeling out of his Stratocaster. He is in total control of his tone, utilising every nuance possible to provide plenty of variety, both clean and slightly overdriven.” Steve Horne – 4/8/2014, In Daily, Adelaide’s Independent News
“There are some familiar sounds wound around Dow’s playing but it goes beyond that. Dow’s style is rhythmic but rich, melodic and specific and yet still refreshingly individual” Sue Miller – Vol 2 Issue 4, 2013 Blues-E-News Magazine
