"Live Review"

"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." - Maryland Music Monthy


"What the Industry is saying about Patty Reese"

“The feeling that Patty puts in her music,
her soulful, bluesy voice and her personality
make her a staple at the Chesapeake Bay
Blues Festival. I get hundreds of demo
CDs a year. Patty’s new CD is my favorite.”
—Don Hooker, Producer
Chesapeake Bay Blues Festival
“The uniqueness and flexibility of her voice,
combined with the maturity, polish and
professionalism of her songwriting...make
her a triple-threat—une chanteuse
extraordinaire. ...one special talent on
the verge of a breakthrough.”
—Musician Magazine
“With a voice like honey & sand, Patty Reese
can hold her own with any other soulstruck
singers. Her sense of dynamics brings out
the drama inherent in any good song -
and she can write them, too.”
—Michael Jaworek, The Birchmere
“It’s no secret that Patty Reese possesses a
stunning voice that knows no limits. Still- it
takes something more to move an audience
these days. Of course, there is no shortcut
to the sound of honesty - Patty Reese sings
it like she’s lived it because she has. While
anyone who has seen her perform live can
attest to the searing power & tender mercies
of a Patty Reese performance, Strong
Medicine showcases a complete & original
artist doing her best work yet.
“With guitar wizard Dave Chappell alongside
to conjure up the changing weather, Patty’s
excellent band follows her effortlessly as she
eases her way between driving rhythm and
blues, gorgeous folk-pop, and soulful rock
and roll. She’s a master song interpreter as
well- Listen to the way she stretches out the
title line during the coda of Warren Zevons’
lovely Keep Me In Your Heart For A While.
She sums up and captures all of the songs
yearning with one achingly beautiful
moment of improvisation. They can’t teach
you that at any school but Patty Reese will
show you how its done.”
—Ronnie Newmeyer, BandHouse Gigs,
Concert Promoter/Musician
“Patty Reese a truly gifted rock vocalist with
an amazing voice,who definitely deserves
success. Her song, “ Just Friends,” is a classic,
along with her version of Keep Me In Your
Heart and While My Guitar Gently Weeps.
Masterfully produced by the excellent
producer Marco Delmar, the album “ Strong
Medicine, is a testament to the great ability
of this supreme rock vocalist and shows the
versatility of her eclectic repertoire. A very
enjoyable album.”
—Fred Cannon, Senior Vice President,
Government Relations, BMI - Producers and Talent Agents


"Here and Now"

It is as if she were a female Dylan, and the setting is unrefined Blonde on Blonde-period from Glen Workman’s (CTS and CZEH) keyboards, with Mr. DeSanto’s best and crying guitar lines. Ms. R’s summation of the finale with her vocal and acoustic notes is, quite simply, timeless. Captured timelessly, as well, is the vast majority of this album, with exemplary ensemble work by the entire production and mastering team, including Ms. R, some of the guest artists, Marco Delmar, and Bill Wolf. Those previous three consecutive songs make the strongest grouping of local or regional tunes I’ve ever heard, demonstrating the purity and variety of Ms. R’s many gifts. Alone, they would make a CD worthwhile to own. They kick the already-high energy into the stratosphere. Coupled with so many other notable songs, they fly just the same. They make this a moveable feast. The uniqueness and flexibility of her voice, combined with the maturity, polish, and professionalism of her song-writing, alone and in collaboration with John Tracey and others (note: please include printed lyrics next time), 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.
She is more than ready to break out. “So up again I go/From the ashes below…” Her special fire burns bright in the eyes and crackles in the ears like finely-aged wood. As an artist, she is just hitting the peak of her power. Here and Now is the place and the time, a singular variety of moods, arrangements, mixes, and productions, as self-actualized and multifaceted as its mistress. And what is actual is actual only for one time/And only for one place/I rejoice that things are as they are…


- Jim Nash


"Wammie Winner Patty Reese"

FirstTime Wammie winner Patty Reese (she took Female Vocalist Rock-Pop honors) has been working on her second album during the past year. In between recording sessions with co-producers John Palumbo and John Tracey (members of Baltimore's "Crack the Sky"), Reese says she's been "all over the place" doing duo shows--with Dave Chappell on guitar--and full-band gigs, "working like a mad dog 'cause that's how you get good." Talk is that 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..."--Maria Villafana
