Praise for "Blues Keep Knockin'" 

"She appears to have found a home with Connor Ray Music and an excellent band led by harmonica ace Steve Krase, and she just blows the doors off on this album." 
- Friday Blues Fix, review of Blues Keep Knockin' 

"Lynn is over seventy years old but sings like this is her debut. With a voice like hers, it would be easy for her to coast on natural ability alone, but each and every performance on Blues Keep Knockin’ sounds like she’s putting every ounce of herself into the track." 
- American Blues Scene 

"Trudy Lynn has been making music for a long time, and Blues Keep Knockin’ is her thirteenth album. This is a damn fine blues record. Seek it out." 
- Fervor Coulee

"It’s great to know that the hard-chargin’ deep soul blues style that is vocalist Trudy Lynn’s signature shows no let-up on her newest offering." 
- Roots Music Report, review of Blues Keep Knockin' 

"Trudy Lynn knows the “Blues Keep Knockin’ on my front door” for a good reason—she’s gotta keep spreadin’ the gospel of good times and bad men to all us fans!" 
- Sheryl and Don Crow, The Nashville Blues Society 

"The songs Trudy Lynn selected to cover on Blues Keep Knockin’ and the song she wrote for the album speak to her experiences with love and heartbreak.  
- Rock and Blues Muse

I love singing the blues! The blues knocks on my door, on my window and my heart. I must sing and I sing only what I feel and I sing to make you feel exactly what I feel!”

Blues in Britain reviews "I'll Sing The Blues For You" 

Trudy Lynn has long been a staple of the Texas blues and R&B scene, and, with this, her 12th album, she shows the true depth of her talent as one of the premier blues divas on the blues scene today.

Backed by a crack band that features guitarist David Carter and harmonica virtuoso Steve Krase, Lynn gives full rein to her talents with vocals that are imbued with the power of Big Mama Thornton, the raw blues feel of Memphis Minnie and the emotiveness of Mary Lane, to deliver a set that literally drips with the blues. 

Lynn opens with Big Mama’s ‘Alright Baby,’  her raunchy vocals underpinned by Krase’s West Coast harp which is permeated with a Rice Miller feel, segueing into a melancholy rendition of Lowell Fulsom’s ‘Black Night’ with more of that Sonny Boy inflected harp allied to Carter’s Broonzy inspired guitar.  Her rendition of Memphis Minnie’s ‘World Of Trouble’ is fuelled by plaintive harp and more Broonzy guitar, with her passive/aggressive vocals conjuring up a vision of a female T-Bone Walker – Johnny Copeland’s ‘Down On Bended Knee’ is a tour de force of deep soulful blues replete with moaning harp and a catchy guitar hook – whilst ‘Still My Angel Child’ is a funky stepper replete with strutting vocals. 

I consider this to be Lynn’s finest album to date, which considering the quality of her previous releases is high praise indeed.
