"Sweet Claudette (Harrell) has an interesting voice ... low, breathy, but at the same time strong and clear. Like coffee or cigarettes, it's an acquired taste, but one which, once acquired, will have you hooked."
---(Barbara Scott) Blues Review (Detroit)

Sweet Claudette is "an up close & personal" performer.
