STRONG PRAISE FOR "LILAC SKY"
Thea Hopkins - 'Lilac Sky' - review (9/10) March 2013 "The first track ‘Might’ve Stayed in Memphis’ showcases all that’s great about this album. It's a country track that gets a bit rockier on the chorus with musicianship that blends acoustic and steel guitars. Thea is an excellent songwriter with a memorably vivid lyrical lines and a fine ear for melody. These abilities shine on the title track of the album, ‘Lilac Sky' . 'Whatcha Gonna Do?’ is a well textured country song which blends guitars and mandola perfectly and lyrically is a spectacular tour de force." --Nick Browne www.WhisperinandHollerin.com
"Thea Hopkins has one of those voices you can get lost in. Whether she is singing one of her original ballads, performing a cover by Marianne Faithfull, or turning on her torch and mysterious side, she beguiles, charms, and sings the heck out of every tune.Lilac Sky, with only six songs to its name, leaves us begging for more. Good singers can cover any tune; only great ones make them memorable. Thea Hopkins is one of the greats. " http://www.acousticmusic.com/fame/

Lilac sky (2013) An excellent left of centre six song country mini album that is well worth putting on repeat play! http://www.americanrootsuk.com/january-2013.html
"On "Lilac Sky," Boston singer-songwriter Thea Hopkins has chosen to release a modest number of songs. Each of these songs absolutely must be heard. " -- www.cntl.altcountry.be, Jan 2013
"The bottom line is that Thea Hopkins knows how to take an audience on a ride that touches the full range of human emotions. The beauty of Thea's voice is matched by the brilliance of her lyrics.” -– Roberta B. Schwartz, The Folk & Acoustic Music Exchange
