“The power of a great musician can be measured by the spirit that it awakens, whether it’s a simple tingle on the surface of the skin or a tight grasp on the depths of the heart…local chanteuse Mama Blue is one of those rare voices that throws open the church doors and lifts you up while bringing you to your knees. Her vocals soar in great expanses of stained glass, cathedral bells and the sacred text of struggle, history, pain, and resilience. Mama Blue speaks to you while her music moves right through you.” – Liza Mitchell, EU Jacksonville
“…the highlights of the day were clearly the emerging talent of Mama Blue…That big voice from Mama Blue evoked Billie Holiday, Etta James, and even Aretha as she rocked out classic blues and R&B, all the while chatting up the crowd and working the VIPs who staggered to the stage for a closer look. Her own “Breakaway” … showcased her golden pipes and powerful delivery.” — Nanker Phledge, seeyouattherockshow.com
