“Her vocals pack a powerful, penetrating emotional wallop…”

The cup of music albums floweth over
By Paul FreemanFor – San Jose Mercury News

“Wow! Comnes, a San Francisco-based singer, songwriter, fiddler and guitarist, dazzles on her new album. Her vocals pack a powerful, penetrating emotional wallop. Instrumentation is impeccably textured, perfectly complementing Comnes’ vibrant voice and artful songwriting. Elements of rock, country, bluegrass, folk and Celtic music mesh in marvelous style. She’s riveting on rip-it-up numbers like the searing opener, “No Hiding Place.” But Comnes is equally compelling on tender tunes like “Lie With You Tonight” and the heart-wrenching “The Day Love Dies.” Brilliant co-production by Jeffery Wood (Penelope Houston, Luka Bloom) and the great Bay Area guitarist Gawain Mathews accentuates Comnes’ tremendous strengths. The album will be released in April, but you can preview it on her website, pre-order it on Amazon and catch Comnes live — Lucia and Her Rockin’ Irish Band play Slim’s in San Francisco on St. Patrick’s Day, March 17.”
