"Tracy K’s set at the Memphis International Blues Challenge not only kept my foot tapping but brought many smiles to my face.  Her talent matches her energy on stage, and both are substantial.  Great vocals, great harp, and she seems to genuinely have a ball while sharing her talent with you. That is a tough combination to beat!" Mick Kolassa, IBC judge 2013

"...a million voices seem to be trapped in that tiny little instrument and Tracy K seems to know how to exorcise them in front of wowed crowds every time. It was my pleasure to invite Tracy K to the 2007 'Canada Reads, Ontario Rocks' event where she composed a song that had some in tears! It was again my pleasure to record Tracy for Canada Live, as I hope the rest of the country discovers her talent LIVE on stage."- Alan Neal, host, Bandwidth (CBC Radio One), Canada Live (CBC Radio Two)

"Tracy's blessed with a magnificent voice, raw power and passion tempered by a tender fragility. If there's emotional depth to the material she plumbs it; and given the chance to reveal something of herself, she's mesmerizing; there are moments here approaching the sublime." - John Taylor, MN Blues

" 'Canned Heat' with an honest realism does a very fine job of taking us back to the simpler times of the Blues, and masterfully so from these immensely talented artists. For old time Blues and Beyond, done right, I give 'Canned Heat' my highest rating of 5*****" - John Vermilyea (Blues Underground Network)

"Throughout this release, Steinhoff displays a masterful style of fingerpicking,  Tracy K's vocals are confident and solid while she displays a mean capability on harp."
