BEST AMERICANA ALBUM 54TH GRAMMY AWARDS 2012
"I'm so happy about Linda Chorney's "Emotional Jukebox" album being nominated, since she embodies what recorded music is meant to do-move you! Listening to the tracks of the album you'll feel the passion, honesty and courage of an artist that deserves all the attention she is finally getting.
Listening to Linda's CD is like taking a walk back in time with brand new shoes (Loui Vuitton perhaps?) Her voice is fresh with excitement and intent, the songs ...well crafted and imagined. Audio artistic with a wide range of love affairs... Lovely journey Chorney....."
Tony Pallagrosi - Owner Concerts East
"This is truly an exceptional record from a vastly underrated singer, songwriter and musician. This is not simply a "really good record for a local artist." It is as good if not better than most of what is out in the marketplace today, wonderful original songs plus uniquely interpreted covers displaying great diversity, arrangements and musicianship all the while subtly telling a fascinating story about a day in the life of all of us. "EMOTIONAL JUKEBOX" should be part of everyone's collection. TRUST me, this is a record that you can REALLY dig into from beginning to end, every track front to back. They don't often make them like this anymore"
