Laurie Morvan Band videos

"The stunning California axe slinger has seen the doors of recognition open up to her exhilarating electric blues guitar style. Laurie found out the hard way that it often takes time for a female blues guitarist to be taken seriously. But ultimately, unbiased listeners have come to recognize the true authenticity and devotion in her music and in her guitar playing. Laurie’s fluid licks, incredible tone, and the emotion she exerts in her songs are evidence enough of just how serious she is." Modern Guitars

"Morvan is a flashy, fast-fingered picker that recalls Stevie Ray Vaughan to my ears. "Wiggle Room" is a cousin to SRV's "Scuttle Buttin". I kid you not - testosterone-dripping Blues fans will riff off Morvan big time. Dig her solos on the slow blueser "Keep On Believin". Fitting is "Where Are The Girls With Guitars", a hit-worthy roadhouse stomper all those Country-Rock wannabe women wish they'd written. " BluesCritic.com


Fan Testimonials

"Loved, loved, loved the show at O'Riley's in Grover Beach. I went on all of my guitar forums the next day and raved about it. Such a talent! Best of luck - not that you need it." - Rick, Grover Beach

"You shore kin play that g'it-tar! I saw you yesterday afternoon at the Clarion in Sac and when you started playing, I fell out of my chair. Wow! You got it. I haven't seen a guitarist generate that much excitement in a long time. I'm a garage band blues guitarist and was overwhelmed by the tone you coax out of that guitar and amp. Keep on rocking. You're going places fast. Your new fan. Hope to see you again soon." - Rod, Sacramento

"I heard you at Gator by the Bay (in San Diego). I was dancing with my friend Teresa. She had her eyes closed when you were leaning against me back to back while you were playing. Incredible! Thank you, darlin' for a peak, peak experience! You rock!" - Chris, Seattle, WA

"That show with the Legendary Rhythm and Blues Cruise last night at the Coach House was AMAZING! You took it up another level! I had seen your band a few times and knew you were great, but last night was just magical. I think Tommy Castro and Ronnie Baker Brooks expected some nice local artist to play a few licks, and were pleasantly surprised to get Laurie Morvan, Guitar Goddess. They seemed to really enjoy your work. And the crowd did, too! It was AWESOME!!" - Nancy

"Great meeting you, your band and your mom in Memphis. Thanks all of you for being regular downhome folk. Your public will love you for years to come because of that. Wishing you continual successes in the years to come. Your music is off the charts OUTSTANDING!!!" - Sweet Claudette, Detroit, MI

   "The IBC in Memphis was wonderful in so many ways. The music, the food, the friendships, the historic sites...it was just all wonderful. But Susan and I bring back with us wonderful memories of times spent with you guys. We love your music, but we love that you all have a heart for the music...as do we.
    You had our vote from day one of IBC. You still do. As a band, you guys are sensational. As people and musicians, you have no equal.
    Thank you so much for spending some time with us, allowing us to have your pictures and autographs...and friendship. You were so open to us, and we were so proud of you. Please come to North Carolina. I'll be there!!!" -Doug & Susan, NC

"I was the older grey haired guy who spoke to you a couple of times at the IBC including in the lobby during the finals -- but come to think of it, you probably spoke to a lot of older grey haired guys. This one just had the real southern accent. Anyway, you were wonderful both at Alfred's and the Orpheum and got the audience buzz. Later I happened to compare my written rating notes for the 10 finalist with a guy from Detroit and another from Kentucky and we all had your group in the top 3. My friend Wally is a straight older guy like me but admitted he tear'd up hearing you sing the song that began with the acapella intro. He said you reminded him of Bob Marley. Reggae, I asked? But he said he meant you wrote songs about the human condition and overcoming adversity. We listened to your CD driving back to MS and were really impressed -- which was not true of some other live act vs CD comparisons. Great seeing you and the band. Trust me, I think good things will come out of your trip to the IBC." - Ed,
Jackson, MS

"The new album is great, but it makes me drive too fast.. "
Ron G, Placentia, CA

"my friends and i saw your band at Cozys.. you all are rocking.. i actually got goose bumps .. love you all" Dena, Sherman Oaks, CA

"WOW. Although I am not a musician, I have aquired enough of an ear to reconize some thing very special when I hear it.
What a delightful treat to stumple on your music !!!!!!
I introduced my sons to blues when they were babes. It has always touched my heart. And to hear a woman play with such beauty lifts my soul. Thank you.
I am going to ask for all three of the albums(ok I'm old enough to be your mama too) for christmas. But if I don't get them I will order them myself.
I am looking forward to many hours of discovering Ms. Laurie Morvan" Mama Irene

"Laurie (Blues Angel) nice job on your overall sound, you are dynamite on the Guitar, Howling Wolf would be proud of you as a Blues Singer/Player!" Les

"I saw your video on utube was very impressed with the whole band wished you were nearer to minneapolis your band is on my list of bands to see before I'm stuck in a nursing home or worse. laurie's gutar playingis a breath of fresh air I enjoy listening to her play. " Claude from Minnesota

"You're one of the few bands that sounds even better live than on C.D. My son was impressed with your C.D. and he is 18" Michelle
