LA WEEKLY boasts “There are a lot of fine blues divas belting it out today, but there’s no one quite like Lawrence Lebo.” World famous McCabe‚Äôs Guitar Shop presents L.A. music scene veteran LAWRENCE LEBO in an evening of Blues and Roots music. The concert follows on the heels of the wide international success of her latest CD release titled THE BEST OF DON‚ÄòT CALL HER LARRY:BLUES MIX.
In his Dec. 10, 2012 review, Ian McHugh, host of “Blues In The Night” from the UK writes;
“Some people are blessed, it‚Äôs that simple. When you hear one note of BB King‚Äôs guitar, you know it‚Äôs him. The same thing goes for Lawrence Lebo, a woman blessed with not just a great voice, high toned and beautiful, but with a sense of musicality that is definitely one of a kind. On her new CD, “The Best of Don‚Äôt Call Her Larry: Blues Mix”, both the voice and the musicality are in full effect. She has a way of phrasing a line that could never be anyone else, her voice sliding into and out of notes in a way that‚Äôs amazingly blue, microtonal in the way that people like Muddy Waters were, it‚Äôs properly spine tingling, and she wisely eschews undue flash. She delivers a song directly, there‚Äôs no mistaking the meaning or the emotion, it‚Äôs patently not false or buried in cod emotional trills and riffs‚Ä¶”
