“Isaac Frankle is a musical wiz kid.” - Christa Martin, The Goodtimes Santa Cruz, 2006

"Shovelman's music would be playing on the radio if Tom Waits and Les Claypool ever went on a road trip together ......and were lost." - Chip, 'So Wat TV' Santa Cruz

"The results are in and the decision is final. If ever I'm looking for a lead shovel, or if anyone is for that matter, Shovelman is the first and only logical choice." -Klaus Flouride, The Dead Kennedys

"Now and then you think you've seen all the shoot you're going to see...then, out of the ether, comes Shovelman and when he's got the slide on those strings and he's singing those old time songs, he's bringing you back the days of LPs and a decade old needle on the living room floor..." - JJ Schultz, Host of SF Bay Guardian's best open mic - The Hotel Utah Saloon

"Isaac Frankle -'Shovel Man' Is not just a Guitarist, Singer, Lyricist but a Percussionist Harmonica Player Instrument Inventor Artist/Scientist & Sound Sculptor 'Shovel Man' will, without a doubt, blow your mind away, and then some! UNREAL Is his talent! I, literally, think he's from The Future and has a Time Machine tucked in his back pocket which he uses to travel back & forth from the 30's Missisppi Delta Blues to early & current Tom Waits to Appalachian Roots Music to 60's & 70's Funk & Soul 80's Experimental Synth & Punk back to the Contempory Nashville Folk scene & Underground Loop Artists of today Exploring the boundless nature of Earth's Eclectic Music and perhaps introducing us to the future of it, as well Summoning the likes of Les Claypool, Beck, Leonard Cohen, Nirvana, Bob Dylan and a host of influential sound makers of old & now Blending them all into something that resembles A Young Unassuming Chap & A Wacked-Out Antique Shovel What follows the assembly of this One Man Dimension Hopping Troubadour is nothing less than astonishing!!" -Jonathan Siegel, San Francisco's 'Poetry Mission'
