"Had Bonnie Raitt and Johnny Cash Shared DNA, the results would produce Sarah Potenza"
“Sarah Potenza and the Tall Boys are such a unique and dynamic force, it’s hard to fathom how they haven’t taken just Chicago but also Nashville, Memphis and Austin by storm. Potenza and her soaring voice are at home in any of the musical genres favored by those famous cities. And if it is true, as Emmylou Harris once famously said, that Lucinda Williams could sing the chrome right off a trailer hitch, here’s betting that Potenza could belt it clear off the Airstream attached to it. The group’s latest album is proof that Sarah and the boys mightily beg to be heard. “A Lifetime Worth of Sin” is clearly worth the consequences. ”
“ "Part alt-country, part blues this band is hard to categorize. Simply put, they play great americana music."”
“ Sarah Potenza started out in Providence and headed to Chicago to start Sarah and the Tall Boys, where they hit the good old country-rock, with an emphasis on country and on Potenza’s outsized, pin-you-to-the-wall vocal chops”
“ "Sensational blues infused vocal delivery. Soulful vocals take center stage. I'm a fan, and I'm very picky."”
“ "She's got the goods."”
“Sarah Potenza brought the house down with her bigger-than-life blues, the epitome of the phrase "man, does she have PIPES!"”
“The Tall Boys have a quiet, rootsy sound that's reminiscent of the Cowboy Junkies.—recommended if you like Susan Tedeschi's more pop-oriented material.”
