“Doozer McDooze wears his heart on his sleeve, places his tongue in his cheek and opens his emotions to the listener. Doozer’s Essex origins mean comparisons with Billy Bragg are inevitable. Thrumming his guitar with a rhythmic energy that demonstrates little concern for the guitar’s safety and total commitment to the music; Doozer McDooze reveals the fragility at the heart of his world view. There is an impressible energy on Not Going Back To That: direct, open and in your face.” – RnR Magazine

“Above all Doozer is an acoustic, troubadour, a story teller who frequently invites you to look anew at the absurdity of our political system, at the dark side of the music industry and of life in the UK.” Alan Ewart – louderthanwar.com
“Vibrant, energetic and brash, he sang songs from his current album Not Going Back To That. Some of his songs are anthemic, others jolly and ironic. The song we can all sing along to is I Don’t Wanna Go Home. There was dancing and clapping and the encores never stopped.” – Lizz Francis – Hastings Independent Press
