"Variety says..."

"compelling talent...goth-country siren Lynda Kay with her towering beehive and David Lynchian theatrics." - VARIETY


""Classic country crooner Lynda Kay""

"The remarkable voice of Lynda Kay, whose smooth classic country sights and sounds convey a confident sense of someone used to being onstage and in the spotlight, conjures the ghosts of 1950s country crooners
Patsy Cline and Kitty Wells."
- LA Weekly


"Sumptuously Lovely"

"Lynda Kay has a furiously beautiful voice, fringed with hand-wringing regret, whiskey-soured sustenance, and sanguinary chuckles in the face of struggles. Sumptuously lovely."
- Maverick Magazine


"Billy Bob Thornton says..."

"She's like Patsy Cline and Kitty Wells all rolled up into one!"
- Billy Bob Thornton


""...melancholy of Patsy Cline.""

"Lynda Kay sings with the boldness of Wanda Jackson, the joie de vive of Laurie Collins, and the melancholy of Patsy Cline."
- No Depression


""The essence of this record sends shivers down my spine.""

Releasing her debut album, you would think that Texan Lynda Kay has been releasing records for years as she has created a definite sound of her own already. All I Ever Wanted, a duet with actor Billy Bob Thornton has a traditional country sound that is sadly lacking in contemporary Music Row Nashville. This tune seems to hark back to the days when Roy Acuff was recording his finer works. The pedal steel is remarkable, and not having heard Billy sing before it was refreshing to hear that he sing just as good as he acts. Graveyard Shift has a cracking country-rock opening, and it seems to impress thereon. It has a radio friendly sound not just to the Nashville crowd, but a groove with potential to astound the pop charts across the world.

It normally takes several records to get it just right, but now and then a talent of such extraordinary quality comes along that blows everyone out of the water. Lynda Kay is certainly an example of this, as I wholeheartedly believe that this album will be enjoyed by people not just in her native Texas but in numerous countries around the world.

""Dream My Darling is the pinnacle""

Singer-guitarist Lynda Kay Parker and cohorts have fashioned a reverb-drenched blast from the past that impressively channels countrypolitan torch queens Patsy Cline and Kitty Wells. "Dream My Darling" is the pinnacle of this project, a David Lynchian soundtrack tune that's perfect, from the artist's throaty vocal right down to the ooo's and ahhh's of the of the backup singers. - Music Connection


"5 of 5 Stars!"

"...contender for best album of the year...essential I'd say!" - COUNTRY MUSIC PEOPLE (UK)
