"Sugar Lime Blue take the power and excitement of early rock without dating their songs"
"Sugar Lime Blue packs a strong Americana punch with their CD, "Move That Earth"
"a modern spin on a retro vibe."
"Sugar Lime Blue.....might just trip you back to the 1970's with their ultracool retro vibes, a musical melting pot that oozes a unique blend of country, rock, blues and jazz.....but also expect to be surprised by a group that's practically impossible to label."
“Like a black crow perched on a lonesome Southern wire, Sugar Lime Blue compel attention. ....On the road in the aftermath of their well-contoured new album, “Move That Earth,” Sugar Lime Blue come packed with new songs. They wisely blend Southern roots originals with clever covers.. Country in nature yet more attuned to folk and rock’s jam band element, Sugar Lime Blue sweeten with soul for a mix that blends rhythm with roots. Add a touch of mystery. Spin tight grooves and Sugar Lime Blue results in Southern rock finery.”
“The seven tracks blend contemporary rock, full-bodied blues and traditional country in a truly compelling style, which can more appropriately be described as Americana music at its finest.”
"The band Sugar Lime Blue is a marriage made in musical heaven"
“It is a top notch taste of twangy, yet soulful country rock that is reminiscent of classic Steve Earle, but also draws as much inspiration and feeling from Al Green as it does from Little Feat.”
“What keeps our attention however is Sugar Lime Blue’s talent for writing a tune; spitting fire at rock from the 60s and 70s and adding a special Nashville jaunt to proceedings.”
“Sugar Lime Blue has been praised heavily in the Murfreesboro area, most often for an authentic, blues-heavy song craft and Ashley Beth’s full-bodied bluesy lilt to match. Far From The Tree, released earlier this year, validates both. Twelve tracks of blues range from hot and slow-dripping to gritty and fast-burning. It’s apparent that they know their blues, but they also clearly know the West as they channel the laidback California acoustic pop in addition to Deep South back porch sound; Far From The Tree sounds as if Sheryl Crow moved to the Mississippi Delta after her self-titled debut and went native.”
“Yes, I indeed did mention Nashville. However this is not a country act. Sit back, close your eyes and think about artists like the Grateful Dead, Little Feat, Edie Brickell and even Renaissance’s Annie Haslam. Now mix them in with R & B acts Al Green, Bill Withers, maybe some Otis etc. Ok, now you have the idea! ”
"'Far From the Tree' is one tight and funky blues-rock album with lead vocals by Ashley Beth that would make Edie Brickell drool. Dave's guitar licks often resemble the bluesier Clapton or the less-Latin Santana, with a slight possession by the ghost of Jerry Garcia. The record from start to finish takes me to an outdoor venue with a hazy purple cloud over my head and dancing with some hairy broad for some unknown reason... but loving it all-the-while. Track highlights are the beautiful country-rock ballad 'No Road Back To Texas', the soothing 'Happiness Falls' (serious Jerry licks here with great flashback organ), the funky intro 'Far From The Tree', and the splendid hard-rockin' finale 'One More Tomorrow'. For fans of both modern electric blues-rock and 70's classic rock alike!"
“Sugar Lime Blue takes me back to a time when music was real and raw. This band has no gimmicks or costumes. They are just real musicians with real artistic expression. You can tell this bunch of modern day hippies are in love with recording, performing and overall just making music.”
“The album covers what appears to be a well-aligned style of music that would fit the interests of most jamband fans. The band would probably be well received at any jamband or indie festival stage.”
“Sugar Lime Blue took the stage and the night picked up. This Mt. Juliet based unit are fans of southern rock and jam band music's dream and easily were the show stealers. Look out for these guys because I predict you will hear their names again at some point in the not so distant future.”
“This is the type of music that you cruise down the boulevard with. The top is down, the wind blowing through your hair and radio is turned up loud.......This is a band already on their way to fame. It's obvious by just listening to their stuff. Great sound! ”
“At first encounter Sugar Lime Blue is as refreshing as their logo. The vocalist is unique and vibrant while the music and rhythm gets you moving. Live or recorded these guys are a treat!”
