“Heather Hardy shows off her technical prowess on the violin, amazingly strong vocals and a gift for music and lyrics that ranks her with some of the top composers in the field of blues music.” – Good Times Magazine
“Long known as the incendiary violinist of the Sam Taylor Band, Hardy’s latest CD shows she stands in nobody’s shadow.” – Backyard Blues
“Heather was no disappointment…she kicks ass on that thing!! I'm often scared to hear electric violin as the potential for high-end ear-shattering notes is so great. But Heather knows just how to e-q that thing and got a real ballsy blues tone out of her instrument. She even uses a wah-wah pedal, so I could really relate!!"
– Vizztone recording artist Debbie Davies
“Hardy’s solos marry lightning virtuosity with melodic sophistication and unhindered soul. In a more perfect world, Hardy would win the Blues Music Award for ‘Best Contemporary Female Blues Artist’ award hands down.”
– Blues Revue
