"I have had Electric Blue Dandelion on loop since I first heard it. The female vocals are so clear, so bold, right in the pocket, and such a perfect vessel for the thoughtful and unique lyrics...This album from start to finish is expertly produced, and the melodies are so well written that they are instantly familiar. Something about Ms. Raveis as a vocalist reminds me of a more classic-sounding Liz Phair...The accompanying instrumentals are all so expertly played and mixed... I loved the whole album...my overall favorite has to be Electric Blue Dandelion. Genre-wise I hear tones of rock and blues with a bit of Americana that is at times a nostalgic throw back to your favorite production styles of the past.
Buy this album! You will be so happy you did."

"Raveis Kole exemplifies all that is beautiful about music -- love and compassion with thoughtfulness and imagination. I love this album!" -- Matt Smith, Internationally Acclaimed Educator/Producer from Austin, TX
"5 out of 5 stars. This album has become one of my go-to albums in a very short time. The songs are extremely infectious with highly thoughtful and insightful lyrical content" -- Cheryl Hodge, Winner, "Best Jazz Song 2013", Hollywood Music & Media Awards
"The lead singer does an excellent job on this song (Electric Blue Dandelion) and the arrangement is put together very well. I was very impressed. Her voice is dreamy and demanding at the right moments. I'm very impressed with the arrangement (Wicked Game). I compared it to Chris Isaak's version and this version is more upbeat, creative and possibly better than the original. I gotta say its one of the best covers I have ever heard. The lead singer does a fabulous job." --Art Durivage, Program Director, WIDE
"The Rave is Raveis Kole" - Julia "Joules" Martin, artist
