"Review of These Days"

Jan/Feb issue 91 2006

".....Bluehouse paints with pastel colors, soft strokes and beautifully blurry harmonies. Acoustic guitars recall early Mazzy Starr,as electric guitar and Dobro add well placed accents. In opener "I'll Find You", lyrics promise an eventual meeting with a soul mate.... Instruments all but drop out on the songs third verse, drawing attention to the words and interwoven voices. "What's Been Going On" is another standout track; Lyrics lament a lost relationship while still keeping a peppy beat and sense of humor."

"The epic "Fishy" delivers over 2 minutes of instrumental acoustic guitar work before the vocals kick in- a delightful mix of acoustic and psychedelic, like a happier Pink Floyd. With a little help from producer Ben Wisch, the Bluehouse has created a delightful album. Extra percussion and instrumentation is kept light throughout the album, letting the lyrics occupy the spotlight."

"Lesley Sly"

(Bluehouse) have been winning rave reviews.... they write powerful radio-friendly tunes and twist them with a quirkiness which keeps them outside formula pop."

Bruce Elder - Sydney Morning Herald

As one of Australia's premier independent bands, Bluehouse have stamped out their own unique style by combining folk-flavored pop melodies meshed with powerfully intricate harmonies and inspired guitar and bass playing (along with healthy doses of sardonic wit thrown in between songs)! The dynamic duo, Jacqueline Walter and Bernadette Carroll, met in a pub in Melbourne in 1995 and moments later were singing together on stage. They have since forged a successful career, by honing their performance skills through beautiful singing, clever thinking and near constant touring. They have consistently received five-star reviews from critics and created a loyal fan base all over the world.

Bluehouse have independently released two EP’s and four full-length CD's --"big", “6 Minutes of Breathable Air,” "These Days," and their latest "One More Kiss." After performing sold out shows all over Australia, they moved on to play to audiences in Europe, including spots at WOMAD and the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. Beginning with their first tour of North America in the summer of 2002, they have wowed audiences at many prestigious music festivals and showcase venues including California WorldFest, the Philadelphia Folk Festival, the US National Folk Alliance, Kerrville Folk Festival, the Ann Arbor Folk Festival, Berkeley's Freight and Salvage, The Birchmere near Washington DC, the Cactus Café in Austin, the House of Blues (LA) and many more.

Bluehouse has shared the stage with Neil Young, Cowboy Junkies, UB40, Elvis Costello, Tommy Emmanuel, Neil Finn (of Crowded House) and other artists. They've also played to an estimated worldwide listening audience of 200 million on the 'Mountain Stage Radio' show based in West Virginia and have appeared on the nationally syndicated Woodsongs Radio Hour.

The Sydney Morning Herald recognized the band's essential eclecticism, terming their music "delicious folk-pop...tinged at times with sweet gospel soul, before plunging into raucous guitar riffs" and "exuberant, sad, wise, harmonically dazzling...a lively display of both instrumental and a cappella with attitude and polished pop."
