Steve Dilling, member of the mega hit bluegrass band Russell Moore & IIIrd Tyme Out said, “THE BLU-DISC is a wonderful collection by a young band who sound like they’ve played together for years! As always Carolyn Routh’s vocals are outstanding, and the supporting cast around her are stellar. This is a must have CD!”
Henry Paul (Blackhawk, The Outlaws) recently heard THE BLU-DISC and said, “People often ask me what kind of music I enjoy listening to. String music is my first and foremost love along with celtic music and native American flute interpretations. This group of talented young people is spectacular. The vocals are high, clear, and beautifully in tune and the instrumentation is truly inspired. I’m giving Nu-Blu Five Stars.”
Radio is also loving this new single, “Other Woman’s Blues” and album, THE BLU-DISC
“Great songs, carefully chosen, beautiful harmonies, and subtle instrumental backing. Nu Blu’s new CD is chock-full of wonderful musical surprises, with the added potential for a breakthrough to the mainstream Country Charts. This recording will stand the test of time. My favourites, so far, are Look at You and Guitar Case, and everything else!” Niall Toner/Radio Presenter/Roots Freeway/RTE Radio One – Ireland
“Well, I logged into Airplay Direct for the new single download…. just listened to it…. nice!!!!! The production quality is very good and your vocal performance is beautiful. On first listen, I thought that maybe you had Dolly Parton singing backup but then found out that it is Christy Reid. She did a beautiful job.” – Michael Browns – BluegrassMix.com
“Looking forward to the CD release. Other Woman’s Blues is Awesome!” – Roy Blackman – The MSB-Show
