“It's Tupelo, honey ~ the songs blend N'Awlins-style blues w spare Appalachian acoustic grit, Southern rock grooves, 60s flower-power dreaminess & rootsy rock. Ricky's dobro is slick & juicy as a ripe peach & Micol's voice is both steely & delicate, a cross between Bonnie Raitt & Emmylou Harris'”

Tallahassee Democrat

“Like a meal of homegrown vegetables ~ fresh, authentic, lovingly cared for & hand-crafted. Earthy, gritty, celebratory. It's a slurry of sound from a grab-bag of Southern soil. The sound of 2 people not afraid to get that dirt beneath their nails...”

Steve Wildsmith - The Maryville Daily Times

“Some just cannot be kept down, they're irrepressible. Years of traveling southern roads, playing anywhere, writing & performing some of the best tunes that 2 people can possibly put together eventually will show the best critics & record labels that they're a force to be reckoned with.”

Gary W. Miller - BluesSource.com

“BMT cuts a free and endearing swath through Southern roots music - the best part of the enthused instrumentation is that laid over it like psychedelic moss are the duo's harmonic vocals, which resonate as though the two had somehow been amiably married forever.”

Joey Guerra - The Houston Chronicle

“I mean what happens when you have a former Delta Baptist preacher's daughter and hook her up with an East Tennessee country lovin musical hoss? It's like the soul-blues of the Mississippi Delta meets the Appalachian Old School Country-Grass and created a little village of music all their own....”

Cecil Abels - The Carroll County Market

“... Blue Mother Tupelo creates just the right balance of impassioned vocals and controlled rhythms. It's the confluence of a turbulent, cool mountain stream and a warm, sunny river—that eddy where the water's just right. Dive in.”
