What folks are saying………..
“It’s been a while since I’ve been so knocked out by a band and CD that I know little about. You guys are phenomenal!”
Carol Beaugard, WFDU-FM and WAMU’S Bluegrass Country
“Impeccable pickin’ and singing.”
Tom Henderson (WMNF-FM, Tampa, FL)
“Thanks for sending me the music. I really enjoyed it! What a talented, young group. I love the sound and your lead singer has an amazing voice. Echoes of Alison Krauss, but with her own unique style! Best of luck. Keep the music flowing down that River of Love!
Widow of Otha Young. Otha Young and Juice Newton co-wrote River of Love together.
“This extraordinary CD just takes your breath away. It starts off strong and continues that way until the last note of NIGHTS. The vocals by Carolyn are crystal clear. The harmony vocals by the other band members fit in perfectly with the total sound. My listeners loved it! A sure fire winner!”
Al Shusterman (KCBL Radio, Sacramento, CA)
You have a great sound. Easy on the ears, and true to the genre.”
Dan Joseph (CKWR-FM, Waterloo, Ontario, CAN)
Really solid, great arrangements, singing and playing. I’m a Nanci Griffith fan and love your version of “Spin on a Red Brick Floor.” Good originals too!
