Stimmgewalt wie Stehvermögen  sorgten schon auf Stinas superbem Silberling  „Kissing  Fools“ für ständiges Staunen. An diesem Befund ändert sich nix. Trotzdem ist alles nagelneu.

Review German BluesNews #72

Review – Norwegian translation

Norwegian BluesNews – 4/6

Ei gutsy dame i norsk soulfyrig rock og blues dette her, som fortjener mye oppmerksomhet slik Angela Strehli, Marcia Ball og Lou Ann Barton fikk i Austin på 80-tallet. Noen damer har rett og slett noe av grunnfjellet i seg, i stemmen og den plassen de automatisk gir seg selv når de trer frem påscenen eller med en ny plate.

Review – English translation

Oppland Arbeiderblad – 5/6


Stina Stenerud mener alvor. På Coming Home blander hun eget og lånt og klarer sammen med bandet, der raufossingen Kristian Wentzel, ved siden av å spille tangenter, sammen med Geir Wentzel også har sørget for å få blåsearrangementene vel i havn, å gi ut album med særpreg.

Hamar Arbeiderblad – 4/6

Hamar Arbeiderblad(02.10.2012)

Stina Stenerud med band tar et godt skritt i flott retning med albumet «Coming Home». Debuten var «Kissing Fools» i 2009, og Stina har ytterligere utviklet sin stemme, innlevelse og formidling siden den gangen.

Hun dukker opp i en rekke musikalske sammenhenger og sjangere.
Nå høres det ut til at Stina Stenerud har funnet sin egen stil også.

Hun synger med flott innlevelse og vitalitet gjennom denne reisen i soul, funk og gospel.
