Ann Armstrong & Steve Hughes / Press

“-“Ann Armstrong writes intriguing songs, plays a mean guitar, and delivers blues and folk in a voice that sounds like it’s flown to Hell and back on its own wings.””

Buddy Magazine

“Compares Ann Armstrong to “both Mary Chapin Carpenter and k d lang in the sensual swelling power of her singing – but with a wicked blues twist, bottleneck belters alternating with yearning love songs, rawness and delicacy memorably counter-poised.””

The Scotsman of Glasgow

““Ann Armstrong’s music runs the gamut from love songs to deep blues. If you’re looking for a peg on which to hang the music of Ann Armstrong and her band, here’s a clue – you’ll need more than one””

San Antonio Express-News

““Armstrong, the premier vocalist of Texas.””

Phoenix, AZ, New Times

““Beyond the blues.” “On stage, Dallas’ Ann Armstrong is forceful when she pulls out her acoustic bottleneck slide guitar to play the blues. Ms. Armstrong’s furious, down-and-dirty rendition of Robert Johnson’s ‘Come Into My Kitchen’ – the highlight of her live set – is downright flammable. Ms Armstrong also shares some genuinely catchy pop hooks on original songs such as ‘Stars Go Out” and “Think About the Rain” Why, at times backed by a ticklish flute and her own stellar acoustic guitar, dangerous Ann Armstrong comes across as sweet as sugar. Ms. Armstrong’s live sets are so substantial – extra grit, extra grease, extra sassy slide guitar.””

Dallas Morning News

““Armstrong’s lilting, heartfelt voice gives life to warm and gracious tunes. This is unaffected, beautiful Texas music.” “This is acoustic music with rhythm, steeped in light-hearted moodiness and Texas highway angst. Their gifted songwriting has created original tunes so simple and solid that they sound like standards.””

Players Magazine

““Ann Armstrong exhibits her powerful voice and unfailing grasp of basic blues sensibilities in fine form.” “Armstrong’s practiced ease on guitar disguises impeccable technique and her original songs – are sturdy vehicles for her emotionally charged vocal stylings.””

Pulse Magazine

““Ann Armstrong exhibits her powerful voice and unfailing grasp of basic blues sensibilities.””

Blue Suede News

““Ann Armstrong the powerful blues shouter-cum-folkie from Texas.””

Dirty Linen

““Armstrong’s blazing blues guitar and sensitive ballardry make for real Texas folk blues.””

Ft. Worth Star Telegram

““Ann Armstrong’s talents, both as a songwriter and blues performer, are deep and diverse. Armstrong’s music, whether recorded or live, is solid, sincere and roots-conscious. Her constant companion and musical partner Steve Hughes spices up the proceedings with fine harmonica and flute work. If you haven’t caught her act (check-out her blazing bottle-neck guitar work), you’re way behind the times in keeping up with the Texas blues scene.”
