"When Akron native M. Scott Horn attended a guitar camp hosted by Jorma Kaukonen of Jefferson Airplane, the legendary artist pulled Horn aside to let him know he shouldn't waste such a talented and unique voice. Taking Kaukonen's advice, Horn immersed himself further into acoustic blues. With his debut, Fake as the Blue, Horn showcases nine acoustic tracks (four originals and five covers) with Jim Ballard adding keyboard and bass on a few of the original songs. Horn's voice is powerful and in-tune even when Horn travels into the lower registers and nearly whispers some of his words. The guitar work is also fantastic with Horn's influences shining through. The two covers that stand out are Dylan's "She Belongs To Me" and Robert Johnson's "32-20." Not only does Horn pull off the covers brilliantly; he also adds his own unique sound to both."
