"Soul-singer, rock goddess, stylist, personality that blows through your speakers forcing you to listen, all of these are Loralee."
- Stephony Smith, Warner Chappell Songwriter

"Loralee's voice is the embodiment of her spirit... big, lusty, and filled with love. She is a force of nature."
- Jeffrey Cohen

"The first time I heard Loralee sing was about six years ago at a songwriter conference. I was blown away. To this day, I've not heard a voice so distinctive and powerful."
- Stephanie Cox, Larga Vista Publishing, Nashville

"...for female vocals, I called upon Bay Area veteran Loralee Christensen, one of the most professional -- and powerful -- singers I have had the opportunity to work with..."
- Brian Knave, Electronic Musician (February 1998)

"She started singing at an early age. Every night in her crib, she would treat us to a rousing performance of 'Rock-A-Bye Baby,' followed by her own applause, and topped off with a gracious 'Thank you... Thank you very much!' That's when we knew a star was born..."
- Janet and Chris Christensen, Mom and Dad

"Loralee not only has a great voice, but has the ability to own the song. She lends great depth and power to a performance and I have seen her bring the house down on more than one occasion."
- Andre Pessis

"If only we could get her to wear a dress..."
-Barry Schiffman, Northern Lights Recording Artist

“...Dennis and Loralee spooned out a whole lotta auditory sugar and torch for their Latimer set. "The Women Were Hot and the Beer Was Cold," "Betty Jean and Bo," "Insatiable Appetite," and "Slippin' and Slidin'." Vocalist Loralee Christensen arrives with a long list of the famous with whom she has sung and/or recorded with. The same is true of guitarist, composer, singer Dennis Geyer who arrived in San Francisco, from Milwaukee, in 1968. Their song strolls through blues, country, rock and originals are like paddling down some old, heart-felt river where dusted off grown-up memories of all the highs and lows of some really big love shine up like bright new pennies. Don't know how the two hooked up, but wouldn't be surprised if Janis Joplin or Sister Rosetta Tharpe dropped them a hint through the heavens...”
- Jean Bartlett, Pacifica Tribune

Excerpt from an interview that took place with Davey Pattison to promote his album "Pictures" (which is really good, by the way!):

Steve:  Who were the back-up singers? They did an excellent job.

Davey:   On "Judas" there was Loralee Christensen, and my old pal Mike Duke doing  the "gospel choir." Mike used to play keyboards for Delbert McClinton, and  believe me, is a great singer in his own right. Loralee is just fabulous! She just comes in, hears the song, and asks how many harmonies we want !!!  I first met her years ago when I was doing vocals for commercials. Loralee is someone who is so talented, and certainly deserves a solo career. Click here to read the entire interview: DaveyPattisonpicturesinterview
