Hey Mavis / Press

“..an Appalachian Americana Roots group who take this genre to new heights.”

House of Mercy~London

“Nicely avoiding the contemporary clichés rampant in the genre, this crew could single handedly ignite a whole new folk music scare. Killer stuff.”

Midwest Record

“Hey Mavis scores where it matters — in songwriting and execution. Laurie brings sharp songwriting skills and sultry vocals to the table, while Ed contributes his schooled musical abilities and range of experience. Expanding the core trio with guitarist Brent Kirby and Bryan Thomas on upright bass has given Honey Man some added kick and a greater range of tonal colors. ”

“Produced by Don Dixon (R.E.M., the Smithereens), the band's second album, Honey Man, is an excellent collection of twangy tunes that shows how much the band has evolved from its first album.”

“The eleven tracks of Honey Man were once again produced by the great Don Dixon who also did the band’s first album Red Wine. The record is a compilation of songs that talk about love, relationships, heartbreak, severing ties, parenting, and perseverance. You’ll hear Ed’s “viola profunda” solos and fills throughout, but it’s Laurie’s voice that sets the table on the tempo of the stories behind the music.”

“Laurie Michelle Caner’s honeyed alto and melodies imbue her songs such as the opener, Say Hello to Paris, about the change of lifestyle that having a kid necessitates, with a gravitas that comes when folks are singing their own words.”

““Wrapped in original songs whose styles range from old timey to jazzy to blistering alt rock, Laurie's voice turns from cold steel to melted butter in the time it takes your heart to break."”
