Alicia Marie / Press

“She handles a guitar like someone who's been playing for 40 years.”

“As a music educator, guitarist and performer, it is so amazing and so refreshing to see a youngster drawn to this fleeting art form. It always is such a downer for me to visit big named music stores and see the tons of kids chunking powerchords or simply riffing these redundant rhythms with no real desire to "learn" the guitar. Like has been said before, keep on doing what your doing young lady. You just might be the next Emily Remler. That would be a gas, for real. I applaud you.”


“What a talent. One of the best musicians in the US. Right here. Love you sugar. Keep playing. You inspire all us old guys. Can't wait for the latest.”

Milton Nowell

"Bluesbaby8" Alicia is a fav of mine, and a personal friend for about 3+ years. She is a tribute to classic American Blues....not fiery, flashy, demonstrative or ego-fueled, just a reverent, smooth player with no need for banks of effects pedals and smoke bombs.

“I'm a rock guitar player, but I love the blues, and you sound fantastic!”

“Well, Alicia, I gotta tell you--I am completely blown away. It's so gratifying as a blues fan to see the next generation getting into it, but you go far and beyond. You're not just playing the notes and replicating what you hear. You're feeling it, heart and soul, and it comes out in your playing and singing. You are truly carrying the torch! The spirit of The Blues is channeling through you. I see more great things in your future and wish you every happiness!”

“I really admire her reverence to an old school genre, she's quite a musician.”


“She's awesome!! She plays so understated!”

“Blues Guitarist Alicia (Bluesbaby8 on Youtube) from Illinois has to be one of the most well rounded blues musicians I have seen in awhile. Her playing and singing just fit so well to the styles of guitar music that she performs.She has been posting vids of her playing since age 13, and a lot of them of her performing solo live. Just incredible playing, singing, and probably someone who we will be hearing a lot more about.”

“Linda Freeman and I were talking this week about Alicia Marie from Ann Arbor, Michigan. At eighteen years old, we figured that she must be channeling Bonnie Raitt to get these great sounds. This lady is definitely a prodigy of the blues. Wonderful guitar work and great vocals are the key and she has it all.”

“Having been a fan, follower and friend of Alicia for...hmmm...coming up on 4 years (wow!) I cannot say enough good about this talented young woman. Impressive on stage and in video, with a respect and reverance for the greats in her chosen genre (I can't say for sure if she chose the Blues or if the Blues chose her), she can step up and play riff for riff with any of "the big boys". But it is her offstage persona that so augments and ennhances her music. She is grounded, humble, gracious, appreciative, and always responds to accolades with such gratitude. In our numerous correspondences over the years she unabashedly credits her parents for providing her with good guidance and a moral foundation. If there is a hint of ego in Alicia (and she certainly has every right to it) it does not captain her ship.”

“Alicia, a 17 year-old phenom! Really. You have to hear her. She plays great jazz as well. She's the real thing, and is probably the next Emily Remler. Look for great things from her.”

“Your work is great. Enjoyed every second.”

Charles Ray Thibodeaux - Accordion Player for Charles Ray Thibodeaux And The Austin Cajun

“Alicia, a guitarist exhibiting her superbly mastered talent, was amazing.”

Richard Petroski

“Taste is everything, and she got it!!”

“I really like what you're doing. If you're ever in Nashville we'll play some. OK?”

“Very good. Clean like Texas Johnny Brown.”
