Strong reviews for both her recorded and live work have given her a profile that is beginning to attract attention not only at home but further afield. Nashville's Gary Allen puts it succinctly: "This Canadian chick rocks"!
Blurred Lines Reviews
(Babe) Gurr is totally on the mark on this new recording. As Gurr purrs the vocal, Paul Pigat's slide guitar slices through and it sounds like a brilliant night at the Troubadour in its heyday. The material is varied, inspired and pensive. Excellent work from a consistently on-the-mark writer.
Stuart Derdeyn, Vancouver Sun
Blurred Lines is as fine a collection of contemporary songs for grownups as is out there - anywhere by anyone - a set of finely-cut jewels, each in a distinctive matching setting. The boundaries may be blurred in a dozen delightful ways; Babe Gurr's vision is 20-20.
