Carmen Lee and the Tomorrow River Two / Press

"Carmen Lee has a sweet voice, awesome style and well crafted songs that fearlessly pull from many musical genres. Beautiful songs from a beautiful entertainer...what more can you ask for?"

El Demento - KAOS Radio Austin, TX

"Carmen Lee has an amazing and unique voice. She is authentic yet she is an original. In my opinion she is the Queen of the Hillbilly Crooners!"

Blake Clayton - IBWIP.com

“Carmen Lee has a way of singing hardly to be compared with anyone, which gives the Tomorrow River Two their very own sound.....pure and original country/rockabilly music.”

“A talented singer, good lyrics, and memorable melodies, the influence of country and rockabilly, -- that's Carmen Lee. Upbeat tunes, lonesome country ballads, dark/sad tales, and reminiscent of Patsy Cline....her dusky voices captures many moods and you'll want to listen to them all. You can't go wrong with Carmen Lee!”

“BIG STAR ALBUM REVIEW: Thirteen songs on Carmen Lee’s debut album “Big Star”. All written by Carmen Lee herself and some by guitar player “Orlow”. Doghouse base and acoustic guitar is the basis of this semi acoustic trio. They’ve created an album with songs in various country, bluegrass and rock and roll styles, even using a hammond Organ and a Toy Piano. The album opens with the title song: Big Star, which is about … well becoming a big star and the other person staying his own simple self. Carmen Lee has a way of singing hardly to be compared with anyone, which gives the band their very own sound. If you like rock and roll (who doesn’t now?) you’ll like Jukebox Baby. And for blues balads lovers there’s Confusion and This Old Town with beautiful slide guitar. This is an album you’ll have to get used to, but the different styles keeps it interesting to listen to... worth the attention. ”

“CARMEN LEE~SOLO~ ALBUM REVIEW: A talented singer, good lyrics, and memorable melodies, the influence of country and rockabilly, -- that's Carmen Lee. Her dusky voices captures many moods and you'll want to listen to them all. There's the upbeat "Big Star" and "Jukebox Baby". "Bittersweet Dream" and "Baby Steps" are reminiscent of Patsy Cline. "When You're Gone" and "Don't Fall for the Desperado" have that lonesome country feeling. But my favorite is the "The Butcher" -- it's dark, sad, and totally original. Reminds me of one of the characters from Studs Terkel's book "Working" -- with the addition of a honky-tonk piano. You can't go wrong with this cd! ”

“CARMEN LEE~SOLO~ALBUM REVIEW: "Carmen Lee hails from Amherst, Wisconsin and still lives in that state, far away from the big towns and country pop. It was the purchase of Elvis' Christmas album at age 12 that led her towards country and rock'n'roll. After singing in various groups, she formed a trio 'Carmen Lee and The Tomorrow River Two', a right formula for both her favourite musical genres. But here, she sings solo, just with her piano, which gives a stripped down style to her 12 original songs. A lot of ballads, with often a pristine vocal, like on 'Lonely Bird', 'Falling' or 'Don't Fall for the Desperado'; a somewhat gospel mood on 'Labors of Love' ; a hillbilly bop tempo on 'Baby Steps' ; and my three favourites, the waltz 'When You're Gone', the light rock'n'roll 'Jukebox Baby' and the superb teen ballad 'Tomorrow River' which is about the river that runs near her home' ”
