 "... Their Southern Fried blues / Outlaw Gospel and Southern soul sound will go down well in the Derby City, with a Mississippi Delta feel and tight vocal harmonies. Micol Davis grew up with her preacher daddy singing Jimmy Reed songs for lullabies; Ricky Davis had a family that played country and rock 'n' roll. Both waded through the American musical canon on their way to the current group, so you might hear echoes of anything from the last hundred years." - Louisville Music News 

"Super songs played by super musicians. It's soulful/bluesy with Southern Rock, classic country, gospel and even a bit of adult album alternative (AAA) influences. This album will win them awards." - Planet Weekly 

"I can honestly say it's been a while since I have been as entertained with an album." - Music News Nashville 

"If there’s one thing Ricky and Micol Davis (the husband-and-wife team behind Blue Mother Tupelo) know, it’s their harmonies. 
Their latest record, HEAVEN & EARTH, showcases the duo’s ability to play off of the other’s voice and their combined skills on everything from piano to banjo. 
The 14 songs are brimming with delta soul and Appalachian energy. "Tupelo" and "Always Lookin'" are back-and-forth duets that fall somewhere in the space between Johnny & June and an uncontrived version of Sheryl Crow and Kid Rock. 
On the gritty "Give It Away /Hard Times", Micol’s voice brings to mind Bonnie Raitt and then Shawn Colvin or Patty Griffin on "Wandering Soul". Like a chameleon she blends with Ricky’s leads beautifully and can change styles on a dime when she takes a solo as in "High In The Sky". The traditional "I Wish I Was In Heaven Sitting Down" shows the pair’s shared roots in the church. As for guests and friends on the album, "Hand In Hand" was co-written with Craig Fuller (Pure Prairie League, Little Feat), Molly Thomas adds violin to "The War" and "Gustard Bellue" includes Robin Roller (banjo), Sarah Pirkle (fiddle) and various members of the Davis’ extended family, and even the song’s subject, Gus the dog."  - Uncommon Music
