"One of my all time favorite guitar heroes Steve Purcell - not only Nashville's finest, but one of the best in the business and an amazing dude
- Ron Keel (Steeler, KEEL, Black Sabbath)
I hail from a long musical family line, including my late first cousin Denny Purcell,
owner and mastering engineer of Georgetown Masters Studios,

& my Cousin Tommy Roberts

; also my grandfather William Cecil Purcell
, who played banjo with Red Foley.
And, not to forget Henry Purcell
, the famous 17th century composer who composed many songs for the court of Queen Mary.
"Steve Purcell has hit a homerun with Ample'tudes. From the first roar of solid cranked guitar in Hammer Down to the Acoustic swing sounds of Bit's & Piece's. Steve takes us on a six string journey
."- Jimmy Warren, Guitar Talk Radio
"For Ample'tudes Purcell doesn't hide his serious chops or eclectic influences, from blazing satch shred ("Hammer Down") to spaghetti-western twang ("Rattlesnake Road")
"- Pete Prown, Vintage Guitar Magazine
"With more than enough guitars to satisfy any fan, Steve Purcell’s debut solo 10-song CD release, Ample’tudes, is a guitar-driven diverse collection of songs with an impressive array of world-class guest musicians."- International Musician Magazine

This is what I call Stupidly Good. Beautifully done!!"- Michael Spriggs
(#1 Songwriter/Producer, "A" string Nashville Session Musician, Eddie Rabbit, Trace Atkins, etc.
"Steve Purcell named his record appropriately. Listening to the 10 cuts he includes in this collection reflects a dizzying mastery of distinctly different musical attitudes, or styles. He connects them all with fun audio droplets of revving engines, church bells tolling and footsteps between songs that somehow work to set the listener up for what they're about to experience."
- Hank Monka ( The Nashville Musician)
"Steve is an accomplished guitarist who has dedicated his life to music. He always distinguishes himself every time we work together.
- Henry Paul (Outlaws, BlackHawk)
