URBAN BEAT- “If your tastes in pop music run slightly askew of the norm, you would be hard pressed to find a better practitioner than Houston’s own Laurie Foxx ….memorable melodies, off the wall lyrics that reflect vulnerability without wallowing in victimization….having seen her perform live…she also plays a mean piano.- Count von Teleke
CITY LIFE LAS VEGAS- “Bridging the gap between Ben Folds Five and Rufus Wainright with a n occasional guitar pop song for good measure.”
POP-NORMAN TRANSCRIPT- “Rocked like a star…Begged comparisons to Sarah and Joni M. with infrequent flashes of Bette M.”
MUSICDISH- “ Laurie Foxx brings home an adult contemporary, singer/songwriter, progressive pop approach to the world.” “Vocals are exquisite…passion poured into every song…with complexity and power…an album of songwriting superiority…with a beauty I have yet to hear until now….”
