"Hey...just wanted to let you know how much I'm lovin' your CD 'Strong Medicine!' 'Trust This Heart Again' is a crossover hit, 'Buckets Of Rain' is beautiful, strong cover of George Harrison's 'While My Guitar Gently Weeps' and love the title track 'Strong Medicine' with Dave's amazing guitar work. Not a surprise that you won WAMA 'Album Of The Year'...Rock It Up!"

an amazing voice,who definitely deserves

Musician Magazine
"It is as if she were a female Dylan, and the setting is unrefined Blonde on Blonde-period... exemplary ensemble work... a CD worthwhile to own.....a moveable feast. The uniqueness and flexibility of her voice, combined with the maturity, polish, and professionalism of her song-writing, ....stirred in the cauldron of personal and performance experience, make her a triple-threat—une chanteuse extraordinaire...one special talent on the verge of a breakthrough"

"...her performing presence and Patsy Cline-meets-Bruce Springsteen sound have matured into her own style, causing the roots-rock and rock-pop community to show its acknowledgment when casting its votes..."

Maryland Musician
"Equally at home with the bluesy growl of Janis Joplin, the bowl 'em over dynamics of Melissa Etheridge, and the smooth grace of Bonnie Raitt."

Chesapeake Bay Music Guide
"a critic and fan favorite..... When Wammie Award
-winning artist Patty Reese takes the stage,
it's immediately obvious why she receives the critical
acclaim that she does. She's a very talented songwriter and guitarist, as well as a powerful and soulful performer. ...able to float effortlessly between genres of pop, blues, folk, jazz, and rock with a style that is both dynamic and original."
