"For a UK blues album, Southbound Train is something of a killer..."
Blues & Rhythm Magazine
"A stage presence that gets your attention and a voice that has the full range of qualities to serve whatever song she sings..."
"Cherry could well be Britain's answer to Bonnie Raitt, no mistake!"
"Cherry can undoubtedly sing the blues like they used to be sung -down on the levee..!"
"As Cherry shimmied and strutted her stuff I was reminded of the compact power of early Tina Turner and, dare I say it, Suzi Quatro, but with a controlled vocal nod towards songbirds such as Emmylou Harris..."
Shetland Blues Festival
"...one of the Mewis trademarks - that belting voice - gutsy, tough and with more than a small nod to Blues shoulders, even including Janis Joplin... "
"...hearty, emotive and inventive singing of Mewis..."
Blues In Britain Magazine
"..she abounds in passion and power. DEFINITELY worth a listen."
“excellent singer...with a soulful voice that will blow you away.”
“When Cherry's on stage you are never short changed, every ounce of emotion is rung from every note and at the end you can be sure there was no more to give”
Review from The Stables
“Gutsy and definitely bluesy, there is no other way to describe it”
“The previously reserved audience warmed to Cherry immediately and within a couple of numbers she had the crowd chanting and stomping along...”
“Although only 23 years old and five foot tall, Cherry Lee dominated the stage from the moment she strode on, with an assuringly confident yet unaffected attitude.”
