MusicPlayers.com says that “Fans of instrumental guitar in the vein of Eric Johnson/Andy Timmons/Prashant Aswani/Steve Morse will find something to like in each of these tunes. Showing off a keen sense of melody, there is an underlying mastery of the guitar that is apparent in each track. Bluesy, hard rock and smooth jazz type melodic themes do not struggle for space, but coexist harmoniously. This is a great sounding recording, with excellent balance, depth and polish.”
“Bold Horizon” has been reviewed by MusicPlayers.com, Drew interviewed about it in the Pittsburgh Tribune review, and is being played on major FM radio stations 102.5WDVE and 105.9QWIK-rock.
Billy Hibbert- “I listened to Bold Horizon without knowledge of style. Drew’s tenacious desire, hours working his craft and love of creating jump off the disc.
From the start Drew sets you at ease with a melodic introduction. Within a few measures a powerful shift. Tremendous technique, soft, tough, rock, jazz, blues. Music to put on and leave on.
Great production, great balance.
Players: Scott Anderson-Keys, Brian Edwards-Drums, George Elliott-Bass
10 well crafted instrumentals. You’ll ride along as the music plays.

Jill- “An amazing friend in the most hard-working musician that I have ever known, Drew Bentley has dropped his solo album, after years of diligent recording hours. For fans of a true masters, this is pure artistry for the ages. As beautiful as it is complex, it will take you back to a time when the word “musician” was reserved for lifelong students of a nearly extinct craft. I hope you’ll give it a listen and indulge in this incredible work of art. Amazing job, and congratulations on a job well done Drew!!”

I listened to it twice last night!!I can’t wait to listen to it again.This is a fun disc!There’s a lot going on and it makes you want to listen to it over and over. Drew has some of the best musicians in Pittsburgh playing on this release.Among others, he has my favorite Pittsburgh jazz drummer: Brian Edwards.The musicianship from the players on this CD is obviously way above what we all usually hear. I’m a huge fan of guitar gods like Joe Satriani, Eric Johnson and Steve Vai.You can hear obvious influences from these guys, but Drew goes in many other directions as well.The sound textures vary from song to song.Drew’s versatile playing style blazes thru jazz, rock, blues, and much more.This CD is for those of us who like more than one kind of dressing on our musical salad.There’s something for everyone on this record! Well done Drew!!! Message Drew Bentley to pre-order your CD today!! You won’t be sorry with this one!”
