This is what "Vintage Guitar" magazine said about Phil.

Phil de Gruy is one of the most astounding talents to ever touch strings. He commands his instrument, the harp guitar, or guitarp, passionately, flawlessly and with a sense of artistry that only a few fall out of bed with. This medley of Who Can I Turn To? and My Romance will have you hitting the repeat button to be sure you just heard what you did. Other artists have used the harp guitar as a concert novelty, and in varying degrees of seriousness, but Phil de Gruy, like Earl Scruggs, George Van Eps, Wes Montgomery and Charlie Christian has taken his instrument into new dimensions.

He's a virtuosic genre-straddler with a flair for solo guitar inventions and a blissful resistance to convention.
    -- Josef Woodard, JazzTimes, April 1995.

The wet & lovely P.d. makes the music of the heavens . . . if it was played by wino angels with light bulbs for heads, freshly seasoned, lightly battered and just back from getting a tune-up at Fischer-Price water house.
                        -- Reeves Gabrels
