Highlights:

The Globe and Mail
November 5th, 2011
“On her affecting third album, Laura Repo wins with lullabies, lovely harmonies and one high-and-lonesome ballad about a city where she can unwind.  Get Yourself Home explores bygones – things missed and things gained, not always in black and white.  Tuneful and relazed, this record never stops.”          - Brad Wheeler

“Canadian Laura Repo’s debut Get Yourself Home landed in my in-box the week I was putting this list together. Repo’s plaintive voice of simple, timeless themes and and the sparse arrangements reach back to country music’s roots and secured her a slot at number 10”


American Roots Music

“The playing is exceptional from start to finish and the instrumentation, whilst much of it being standard for the genre, shows a lot of originality in the way it is used, never sounding derivative of anything else within the genre. Laura’s gorgeous vocals seem a little reminiscent of singer songwriters such as Carrie Rodriguez and Gillian Welch with thatlovely twangy rootsiness that has such an authentic feel, and yet she is still different enough to pretty much stand alone stylistically….”        - Mike Morrison
