“I got home after the Kari Lynch show thinking it was one of those rare and precious moments where I felt I was part of something really special.” - guest review from sold out show (Ann Arbor, MI)
“Spend some time with her latest releases. Listening to Cigarettes, I was immediately struck by Kari’s golden, smoky voice coming across so clearly. This song offers a chance to peek inside that creative brain of Kari’s, and also her hungering heart. She sings, “I would give anything to feel something burning inside me again.” I was right there yearning alongside her.” - Sue Clements
“Now living in Nashville, and recording a new album, the entertainer impressed the near-capacity audience (Kalamazoo State Theater) so much that they gave her a well-deserved standing ovation. Her music was certainly a big hit as fans lined up to get autographs after her set. My favorite song of the night was one she wrote while in Nashville called "Sweetheart," a song about making sure you don't grow up too fast. It sounds like a hit to me.” - John Gonzalez
