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

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

nursing home or worse. laurie's gutar playingis a breath
of fresh air I enjoy listening to her play. " Claude
"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
