I got your cd's in the mail Savanna and WOW are you ever so good. Great. Fantastic. What a powerhouse vocalist you are. Admittedly some tears fell a few times listening to the moving words of many of your songs. And other times I cried because your voice is just so beautiful. Your artistic abilities are filled with soulfulness, great depth, control and a personality and style all your own. I love listening to the subtle and not so subtle nuances and qualities you have to your voice. And your song choices, well they are pretty great too. My kind of music for sure. I also want to add that I love, love how you packaged your cd's in such a unique and creative way that clearly shows more of your talents and artistic flair. Your covers and content are perfectly you. Thank you Savanna Coen for the gift of your musical talents and beautiful voice. I look forward to all the music yet to come and hope one day that I can actually attend one of your concerts.

The art and soul of Savanna Coen...
You were great at Art and the Vineyard. Several people commented about your talent. We so enjoyed listening to you sing.
That was probably the most enthusiastic reaction I've seen to bringing in a live musician at Crossroads!
Crossroads Blues Fusion
"Your lyrics astound me. They reflect intuitive insight, empathy, and a maturity, which makes me smile. Your voice is naturally evolving and in the span of two years, your range and modulation is pronounced. What follows are more specific reflections on your house concert. I do want to say something about your 'voice.' You have the heart and soul to DO/BE the blues; it fits.
'Breakthrough' is my favorite; the lyrics are real, the emotion and understanding palpable.
'Till It's Gone' shows wonderful voice syncopation. You tell a story felt by all. Universal always works.
'As If; is my runner-up fav! YOU really stand out and once again tell a story, easily understood because it's presented well! I call: 'instant classic.'
The disc-content finished STRONG, with 'Don't Tell Me Goodbye!' You shine and your presence is felt .... I got goose-bumps."
"I would love to share how much your music has impacted me! Ever since I first heard your work, it struck a 'chord.' Your covers are amazing, but the real magic is in your originals! Your voice carries the loving, healing vibrations to deliver your words. Your song 'House of Mirrors' was like seeing the world with new eyes. I played it so often, shared it along with your older stuff, and I swear my coworkers even know your lyrics by heart! Music has the power to give the emotion that sometimes words alone cannot. The understanding in 'Strangers,' the realizations in 'Till It's Gone,' the identification and empathy you give.... Man that's some power! Everyone I have had listen to you has echoed the same as I. You're incredible and are going to go incredibly far! I'm forever grateful and excited for the world to catch on to your amazing abilities!"
"She has a beautiful voice!"
"I want to thank you for what was a memorable evening last night. You are truly a remarkable young woman and your originals touched me deeply. Thank you for sharing your authentic self, baring your heart and soul, and especially for holding the intention to bring positive energy into people's lives through the incredible gift of your music. You have so much wisdom."
"Such a powerful voice!"
"No tougher blues girl around."
"She's an accomplished performer with a gorgeous voice. The crowd goes wild."

"Her voice surprised me, it was amazing!"
"I stopped by [her "Strength" CD release party] and won a free download of one of her songs. ABSOLUTELY PHENOMENAL!"
"I was blown away by your CD...I LOVE listening to it, and it's on constant rotation in my car! The first song on there, "Breakthrough," I think is the one that makes the biggest impression on me, although they are all SO beautiful and full of passion. Your words do such a sensitive job of capturing complicated feelings and experiences in just a few phrases...I guess that's the poetry! I also really loved your guitar playing, and thought the sound quality was excellent."
“Simply put, your CD is fantastic!”
“She is an accomplished performer with a gorgeous voice, the crowd goes wild!”
“Savanna Coen was [a] surprise highlight at the Willamette Valley Blues & Brews Festival. [She] has a scary-dangerous good voice. It’s not hard to imagine that as an adult she’ll put Etta James and Koko Taylor to shame.”
“Savanna impresses me as an authentically inspired and rare, down to earth yet elegant, wise old soul – so unique, so talented and special beyond words!”
“When I first heard Savanna’s singing, I got chills.”

“I recently popped Savanna’s LIVE CD into my player and it just doesn’t want to come out! I put it in, hit repeat and Savanna just sings all day long! Musically, it’s very pleasant to listen to. But the lyrics are the *magic!* When you allow the music to fill your space, you find, or at least I did, that I would be in conversation and one or two words would pop out of the song and fit perfectly into the thought I was speaking about! How often does that happen?! Savanna’s LIVE CD is emotional, it’s creative, it’s intuitive and thoughtful. The melodies stay with you and the lyrics … speak TO you and FOR you in ways you just wouldn’t expect from a young woman who is ALREADY much wiser than those 15 years!! Awesome job, Savanna!”
“Savanna is what is right with the blues today. (She) is an immensely talented girl.”
