"Hard to Love" Isn't Hard To Love - Read the reviews!

'Hard To Love' is a  colorful musical tapestry woven by a consummate artist out of the warp and wool of jazz, soul and blues. Parker's passionate vocals deliver what might be one of the best albums of the year so far.”

— Henry L. Carrigan, Living Blues

Joyann Parker is the real deal...a powerful vocalist, an accomplished musician on both guitar and piano, and the writer of songs that hold up over time. This is blues and deep southern soul of the highest order. Joyann Parker is a 21st century blues woman.”

— Bill Wilson, Reflections In Blue

She is immersed in the blues and it is now a part of her life, just like breathing and her heart beating... the shoes are kicked off and she is very much at home here. ”

— Bob Gottlieb, No Depression
