"We have been mesmerized listening to this singer with her very unique voice" (Rootstime Magazine, Belgium)

"I LOVE Travelin' Fool--both the original (I call it the "country version") and the new one! I could just see Dolly Parton up there singing it. (No offense to Lauren’s considerable singing skills…)" (Ken Nagelberg, WHYR DJ, Baton Rouge)

"We were glad to host a concert with Lauren Heintz at Trinity House Theatre.  Lauren has a stunning voice and a bunch of great songs to share.  I was also very impressed by her skill as a guitar player.  She delighted the people that came out to see her and we look forward to having her back at the theatre.  She came highly recommended to us . . . and after hosting her for a show we can see why."  (Bill Keith, Trinity House Theatre, Livonia, Michigan)

"I met Lauren Heintz only last week, and I just couldn’t wait a year or few to host her. Her ear-opening fast finger-style guitar took many years to master . . . I noticed Lauren’s guitar work first and then her mellow round voice which brings to mind Joan Baez (sans vibrato) and Kate Wolf."  (Tom Yeager, Songbird Sanctuary House Concerts, Houston, TX)

"To compare Lauren's songs, voice and guitar playing to any other performer would be doing her a disservice. In our travels it is rare to find a voice that is truly unique and Lauren's voice, to us, is like a piece of exquisite dark chocolate rum cake served in Grandma's gold-rimmed china teacup on a platter lined with the finest velvet!"  (Donna and Kelly of Still on the Hill)

"The music of Lauren Heintz will transport you to another plane of existence. Her guitar playing is unbelievably beautiful and entrancing, like listening to a waterfall on a pool of bells.  Her voice is rich and caressing, enticing you to hang onto every word.  She can mesmerize, tantalize, hypnotize and melt you, and then she tickles your funnybone with her delightful humor.  Lauren is one of the best and most original entertainers around, and not to be missed!"  (Judi Neal, Good Medicine House Concert Series)

"Lauren Heintz is an awesome guitarist with a voice that comes from deep inside the songs she shares, but it is her grace onstage that connects her to her audience. And, for the time she is onstage, they are hers. Her concert at our series ended with a standing ovation and calls for more, and we'll welcome her back anytime. (Mike & Maggie McKinney, Lucky Mud/Americana Under The Stars/Americana Cafe Sundays)

"Distinctive and masterful guitar style; compelling, engaging, and profound songwriting; one of the most intriguing and unique vocal talents ever. There's nobody I am more excited to book again than Lauren Heintz." (Ron Holm, Musical Program Director and All-Around Music Dweeb, JustGoods Friday Concert Series.)

    I love Lauren's voice and her beautiful guitar playing. Most of all, though, I LOVE her lyrics! Never just fluff! She has keen observations of today's world with deeply emotional responses and expresses them beautifully.
