Her 2008 album, Dawn of the New Day, was the highest charting album by a full-blooded indigenous country artist (in the SoundScan-era).“Crystal Shawanda puts down some serious heat on her new album, Midnight Blues.”
–Rock & Blues Muse“If you’re a fan of those hard-hitting female blues stars of the past, you’ll be a fan of hers too. In a word, this album is exceptional.”–American Blues Scene
