Looking Through the Blue
"Dameron's playing is a nice blend of old school Jazz Guitar, Rock n' Roll double stops and swing blues. Her Guitar tone is crisp and smooth, giving her just enough bite for when she does her Bluesy Jazz thang..." --Lyle Robinson, Jazz Guitar Life Magazine "Based in Colorado, Dameron has an echoey acoustic sound on her guitar that is slightly reminiscent of Pat Metheny at times. Her music is soothing, danceable (but with subtle rhythms) and pleasing." --Scott Yanow, Los Angeles Jazz Scene "Dameron is personable and enthusiastic, especially with music, much like "Looking Through the Blue" The CD is warm and energetic, offering jazz in the form of her guitar and a few hired guns on flute, sax, drums and bass..."-- Ed Montesano, Boulder Planet "Laurie Dameron performs with a down to earth, sincere passion that makes her music a very personal statement." -- Jeff Linsky Internationally renowned guitarist 'If you haven't seen Laurie Dameron perform, a surprise awaits. Her skills in playing jazz style guitar are just excellent, and with her singing you are taken on a wonderful journey through her original music. We are proud to have Laurie play at the Rock N Soul Cafe every month!' -- Sam and Sheryl Radetsky, Owners - The Rock N Soul Café, Boulder, CO 'Girl - You are Good! Best Lady Guitar Player on earth! And dats da truf!' --Carmen Allgood, owner and producer of The Colorado Wave Radio Singers and guitar players are a dime a dozen - or so they say. Laurie Dameron\'s performances are an exception - they reflect a broad range of creative experiences accumulated since early childhood. Starting at age four one the piano, Laurie was self-taught on the guitar and became proficient by age eight. From then on she was performing for any audience she could find. While attending Adams State College, she attained a minor in music. She toured with ASC Big Band Jazz Ensemble, twice participating in the Annual Greeley Jazz Festival where she impressed jazz virtuoso Johnny Smith enough to receive free lessons.
