"Seeing and hearing Lauren perform was a treat. I'm only sorry that I had not done so sooner. She sure has it all together - good guitar work, good singing and good songs. I'm looking forward to hearing more of her." (Allan Shaw, President, Folk Era/Wind River Records)
"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)
"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.)
"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)
"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)
