Lorraine Conard Band / Press

“Hailing from Waynesville, Lorraine Conard Band brings “progressive Americana” to the mountains in the form of her own original songs. With influences from a variety of music styles, Lorraine appeals to many different crowds, playing tunes offering bluesy folk, Southern rock, bluegrass, ballads, and a “wee bit of jazz.””

“In newer songs, Conard’s sultry voice still occupies center stage, but energetic bass lines along with Kelly’s adept mandolin playing create a pleasant pared down sound.”

“Don't mistake the title of singer/songwriter Lorraine Conard's recently-released disc: There's no adult contemporary sap here. "Have mercy on me. .. oh angel, let me be," she pleads on the country rocker "Angels Are Following Me." Conard's lyrics are instantly comfortable yet avoid cliche; her vocals are dusky and hint at bad-girl inclinations. Fiery woman-wronged numbers like "Sitting Tight" and "Train A' Coming" deserve bad ass boots and line dancers; the darkly driving "Heading Down to New Orleans" confirms that Wings is devilishly good”
