QUOTES: (more press quotes)
“Beautiful melodies ... powerful vocals ... creating soulful and heartfelt music. ”
— Guitar Girl Magazine
“What is absolutely certain, however, is at the moment when Laurie Raveis and Dennis Kole first met, a synergy was born that would blossom into one of the most talented singer/songwriter duos around today. ”
- KC Cafe Radio
“'Angel From Montgomery' has been covered dozens of times, but few have done it as much justice as Raveis Kole. They build the song from its origins into Celtic Americana, and further into a modern day canticle, the employment of finger-picking guitar, mandolin, banjo, and accordion laying the perfect foundation for Laurie's soaring vocals. ” — JD NASH, AMERICAN BLUES SCENE
MUSIC LISTENING - "Electric Blue Dandelion Nashville Sessions"
