Now Toronto - "Alanna Gurr’s voice brings you inside. It’s hushed and raspy, giving you a sense of secret confidences as she coos her at times nearly whispered tunes."
Rating: 4NNNN’s !
Gray Owl Point - "“Swimmer” is an absolutely pristine album opener. It’s perhaps Gurr’s best vocal performance to date, expressing feelings of wanting to just get away, but also accepting changes as they roll around."
Rating: Proud Hoot(Really Good)
She Does The City - "After the first taste, I was ready to hear more. The whole record delivers the same satisfaction; it is fluid, and saturated with warmth. There is gentle movement present within every track, creating a buzz of soft energies. They can be heard at the forefront, through Alanna’s whispery smooth vocals, or within the supporting instrumentations atmospheric guitar patterns and sweeping pedal steel tones."
Exclaim - " (an) eight-song collection in the form of cooed vocals, gentle pedal steel and spaciously atmospheric folk rock arrangements.”
Listen to This: Alanna Gurr and the Greatest State
The soundtrack to your summer nights has arrived. Alanna Gurr and The Greatest State have returned with their sophomore album, Late at Night, released through the new Guelph label Missed Connection Records. My first taste of Alanna’s new tunes came from the live-recorded Southern Souls video for Hell and High Water. This video checks out with everything I want to see and hear; a serene setting inside a gorgeous old church, captured with sun pouring in through the windows, and a fantastic raw take of a song about the lengths you’ll go for love.
