"Fine melody, polished musicianship, and catchy vocal harmony...the piano,
bass, and drums are watertight...Morvan’s guitar playing is what the excitement
is all about...dazzling chops and fluid licks..." - Blues Revue
"Morvan’s strength is her blistering guitar..." - Elmore
“With Morvan’s muscular, yet lyrical, guitar lines leading the charge...and
compelling tunes there’s plenty to like about this release.” - Blues Source
"Morvan has all the soulfulness of Bonnie Raitt and
the swaggering, muscular guitar tone of Stevie Ray Vaughan
provided a blistering, high-energy ending to another great
guitar festival at Krannert."

Up! she enters the upper echelon" Vintage Guitar
"Poised on the edge of a major breakthrough...sultry
vocals, imaginative songwriting, and smoldering fretwork."
"Morvan, who opened the show, also stole it...in a
scorching set of original blues rock that left the early
arrivals staggering to the CD sales booth." (Coloma

and her characteristic humor. Laurie Morvan Band concerts feature
the beautiful harmonies of Laurie and backup singer Lisa Morvan,
as well as phenomenal soloing between Laurie, bassist Pat Morvan
