Lionel Lodge Human Heart A kind of quirky Americana playing solo artist from Vienna who puts me in mind a bit of Curtis Eller, Neil Young, Bob Dylan, Ronnie Lane and more… It’s a thirteen track and has some glorious storytelling like numbers on the album that include the celtic rock of ‘Auto-Pilot’ the celtic swing of ‘Almost In The Clear’;  the country rock of ‘Pauper Or A King’; the Cajun Countriness of ‘Running Through My Heart’ or the Gospelled ‘Rise Up’. Love it! 9/10 By Glenn Milligan” - Glenn Milligan


This is an exceptional collection of songs, blending musical influences in a fusion that defies categorisation -or maybe creates a new one of its own – ‘Schragg’? Here’s one label I will put on it though:- Superb. Jeremy Rees presented Human Heart as Album Of The Week on Cardiff Radio. For the full review click here.” - Jeremy Rees

Lionel may come rolling out of Vienna but it feels like the map reference ought to be somewhere between The Band's Woodstock, New York, and the original Allmans' Macon, Georgia. Roogalating, everything in the right place." Phil Sutcliffe, Q Magazine, England.” - Phil Sutcliffe

The Agitator is quite an eclectic album and also infuses blues into the mix as well as some slight flirtations with punk...a pretty strong album from beginning to end. Solid songs, good production and a great flow. Eleven albums strong is seems as if Lodge still has a lot to say., upbeat... exceptional vocal performance by Lodge...I swear at times it sounds as if he is an alternate version of Bruce Springsteen. It’s subtle and I definitely heard it come out...” - Matt Jenson

The Equal Ground

Definitely Schragged" by singer/songwriter Lionel Lodge is an acoustic CD that stands in a class by itself. A masterpiece. The music is Lionel's unique brand of acoustic folk eclecticism. It is authentic and organic. The performances are stirringly memorable and unique with contributions from tuba, violin, two accordions, harmonicas, flute and various percussion instruments. This is real talent that does not need to be disguised. Our favorite tracks are the wildly hypnotic "Dancing With The Moon" and "The Greatest Thrill of All," which features an exquisite guitar/piano/accordion accompaniment. This CD captures the essence of friends creating music together and invites the listener to become a part of the experience. This CD is a classic for your collection!
