"Vocalist Solitaire Miles  sings  with warm highs and holds her lows neatly.  There's a jazziness about Miles's phrasing, but she holds fast to a sound reminiscent of roadside bars where just three people are left near closing

at the pinball machine.”  - Wall Street Journal 
 

"Susie Blue and the Lonesome Fellas includes some of the best Jazz and Roots players. 

and Miles adds a lively vocal style that brings to mind a winning blend of Patsy Cline and Billie Holiday. "

- DownBeat Magazine

 

"Savvy souls know there's a big difference between Roots music and Western music.  Susie Blue and the

Lonesome Fellas were rightfully  honored in Fort Worth at the Academy of Western Artists' 20th annual

Will Rogers Awards for 'Best Western Swing Song'" - Billboard Magazine

"You can't listen to Western Swing and not smile, it's impossible not to smile, it's feel good music. 

Miles' voice is wonderful, what an instrument."  - Michael Feldman, NPR

"Susie Blue and the Lonesome Fellas is a new album of Western Swing which  is popular with many folks, 

and I do think this group does it very well,  it's a lovely album."  - Marie Crichton BBC Radio
