‘The Blu Disc’ is a wonderful collection by a young band who sound like they’ve played together for years! As always Carolyn Routh’s vocals are outstanding, and the supporting cast around her are stellar. This is a must have CD – Steve Dilling, IIIrd Tyme Out.
“Great songs, carefully chosen, beautiful harmonies, and subtle instrumental backing. Nu Blu’s new CD is chock-full of wonderful musical surprises, with the added potential for a breakthrough to the mainstream Country Charts. This recording will stand the test of time. My favorites, so far, are Look at You and Guitar Case, and everything else” – Niall Toner/Radio Presenter/Roots Freeway/RTE Radio One – Ireland.
Well, I logged into Airplay Direct for the new single download, just listened to it – nice. The production quality is very good and your vocal performance is beautiful. On first listen, I thought that maybe you had Dolly Parton singing backup but then found out that it is Christy Reid. She did a beautiful job.” – Michael Browns – BluegrassMix.com.
