"New music review by Peter "Blewzzman" Lauro, Blues Editor @ 2011 Keeping The Alive Award Recipient "Our River" is where Lisa intends to one day reunite with those loved ones who have given her comfort and guidance before departing from her life - her parents and grandparents. If those words sounded beautiful and emotional when you read them, just wait till you hear the song. I've listened to it so many times now and each time had me shaking my head in awe. Everything about this song is perfect: the inspiration; the lyrics; the way it's being sung; the way it's being performed; the heart pounding rhythm; the soothing and hymn like sounds of the organ; the angelic sounding backup vocals; and the fierce, yet spiritually influenced guitar leads. Unbelievable! This isn't just song of the year material, it's song of a lifetime caliber.""
