"Wilber James is a fantastic musician, writer, singer and bluesman. H e is  a triple threat -- amazing  guitarist, vocalist and harmonica, all at the same time. He  puts his heart and soul in every song and tells the story with true feel straight down to his soul . He owns whatever song he chooses to do."
Don Francks, TV and film star, recording artist
 "I could have listened to your band all night long. I  love the tunes and the musicality, the dancers  were evidence. You  guys were awesome. I personally want to thank you for your support of the Rock for Dimes."
 Dennis R Ullman,  Assistant Director for  March of Dimes  Canada

"....I had no idea of the fire that burns in your belly, you ROCK. I was initially impressed by your soft charm, graceful  presence and your command of your instrument.  I was not ready for the all out fury and passionate guitar playing on your Tall Drink Of Water CD, In the context of our Circle of Players you were a wise voice, the consummate storyteller, you make every song you do your own, but this CD  regardless of a few minor technical things, you expose your heart and soul, your writing,  singing  and  unforgettable passion with your guitar playing."
Dennis Drew, keyboardist with 10,000 Maniacs, broadcaster,

Wilber has also attracted the attention of, and earned accolades from, such noted musical promoters as Seamus Shinners, Thomas Hemsdale, Rick Crogan and  Dan Morrison.
