Joanna Connor – Big Girl Blues
On Big Girl Blues, Joanna Connor brings a revved up rock flavor to the blues with a desire to move the music forward, not just pay tribute to it. This recording features twelve self-penned originals, impassioned and inspired guitar work and her strongest and most expressive vocals to date. There is no doubt that this recording will further Joanna's reputation as one of the brightest stars of the new blues generation.

1. AllMusic - Tim Sheridan
The comparison of Connor to Bonnie Raitt is unavoidable, considering the similarities of their vocal style and skill at slide guitar. But Connor offers a more savage guitar approach, akin to George Thorogood, and she comes on as a bit nastier. The album is filled with impressive guitar work, but the bad-girl pose wears thin after a while.
