JC & Laney Press Releases

SEPTEMBER 2015

Wouter Kellerman - Grammy Award-winning Composer
Delectable Fare! Here’s the whole package; exceptional vocals, awesome harmony and very pretty guitar parts plucked with precision. When It Comes To Love and Hard Road To Easy Street are a vocal treat. Will You Be There makes easy listening and the words just sink in; same goes for Together We Can and How Love Is Supposed To Be. A must listen to record!
 

James Cowden - Singer/Songwriter
May I say... unequivocally. They do have a righteous sound. Thanks for capturing the magic moment. But when do these two ever NOT have a magic moment. Some folks call this chemistry. I called it fabulous. Lightning in a bottle..

Andy Hurlbut - Singer/Songwriter
Lon (Austin) and I went to see JC and Laney Greynolds last night at the Highlands Center in Prescott - OMG!!! Their performance was incredible, and the new songs they are doing are masterful - JC's writing and the arranging and performances. I feel so blessed to know them, and enriched every time I hear them play. Catch them when you can, they're playing daily up in Williams till the end of the summer, and they have a web site: jcandlaney.com that has their full calendar. It will be worth the effort, I promise!!!!!!!

Doug Dickens - Mixposure Radio and Showcase of Independent Artists
My personal favorite of JC and Laney's wonderful songs is 'Why'. You will know why when you listen to the impeccable lyrics of JC Scott and Laney's celestial harmonies. This is nothing but a class act.


AUGUST 2013

J. Miller-Concerts In Your Home
This powerhouse singing duo held the audience in the palm of their hand. The surprisingly tender love songs written by JC Scott were well received. Their banter was spontaneous and fun. JC's guitar playing was outstanding and their singing is some of the best we have had in our home. Charming guests.

Tony-Flattened Squirrels
With Irish-type Folk, master uses of minor chords slurred with unexpected major chord tie-ins...A Lindsey Buckingham style playing and some of the best harmonies I've had the pleasure of hearing in years, JC & Laney stand alone...Clever and story telling writing in the lyrics..I'm in awe..."Follow Your Shadow Home" is one of the best songs I've heard in a long, long, time. http://www.reverbnation.com/jcandlaney

Darrell Elmer Rodgers' Weblog
Of course, with 130 acts, there were plenty of outstanding shows to see, and I would be remiss if I did not tell you of the superb job my friends “JC & Laney” did on the stage at La Cocina – Old Town Artisans. That’s my favorite of the festival venues. Even though they can sit well over 100 people, it still feels intimate and the audience is close to the stage. JC Scott & Laney Greynolds were joined by their producer Steve Wood on piano and it really “filled out” their sound. Not that they needed it. Their vocal harmonies blend like golden honey. And JC’s songwriting is excellent (“Every time I feel my heart on fire, You’re at the end of the flame”). Good stuff.

APRIL 2012

The Garden of Ezen - Scrolling Stone
"Surprise! The Xtreme Bean offers many pleasant surprises, but earlier tonight was the topper for me thus far, by far. My intention had been to just stop in long enough to grab a decaf, but when I heard these two people I changed my order on the spot to an espresso. I knew I’d be there listening to them for a long while, and now I’m here at home writing about them for a little while longer, still listening to them on their latest CD, Heartbreak & Paradise. Find this blog post at: http://0317d24.netsolhost.com/WordPress/?p=4406

During a break Laney told me that she and JC have only been performing together for a couple of years, but I told her they sound like they’ve been together for a lot longer than that. JC said I should hear them in a more acoustically friendly venue, and I certainly plan to do that, but they could make a wrecking yard sound like a backup band. Their individual voices are very good, but in harmony they’re… well, heartbreaking, and as for paradise, we Zensters don’t necessarily believe in that. But we don’t necessarily rule it out either, and JC & Laney have now become part of the reason I personally don’t.

JC invited me to give them a call anytime, and I’ll probably do that tomorrow (actually, later today). I have many questions to ask them, and will no doubt be updating this post after the interview.

You can listen to their music yourself by going to their website, which has streaming audio throughout. All three of their albums are available there, and some other stuff as well. Their CDs are temporarily out of stock at Amazon, and that doesn’t surprise me in the least.


DECEMBER 2011

Live Music Phoenix - Jim May
"This is the best local songwriting duo we have ever heard!!! Don't miss this one!" Live Music Phoenix.


NOVEMBER 2011

SPM Acoustic - Arizona State University
JC and Laney have been in the local music scene for some time — mostly apart. JC caught up with Laney through the musical grapevine relatively recently and the duo hit it off instantly. It wouldn’t be tough to guess that if you sat in for a performance (like, say, the one here): Their harmonies are reminiscent of classic Fleetwood Mac or Simon & Garfunkel, beautiful and masterfully done, while JC’s guitar-work provides the perfect accompaniment.
