“What a terrific band with each member doing a beautiful job on his or her instrument!  Mary Michelle is a wonderful singer and Loren Jay plays truly excellent guitar throughout. Frankly, I'm pretty jealous of Loren Jay's guitar work!  The original material is so well-written and radio-ready, it's hard to imagine they won't end up getting a record deal soon.  I can't wait to see these folks perform live. They're decidedly one of the finest acts I've heard in greater Houston and should be selling out rooms all over the place!”

Stumbled across a band a couple of years back. Immediately they captured me with songs well written, melodically enticing, rtistry that excites and the vocal Talents of Mary Michelle Brown - which are superb. This particular group of musicians are what good bands are made of - They have it all. I predict a bright and long future for the Band That is Sawdust Road.

The songs are delivered with great lyrics and emotion. When you hear the music you will soon forget the crazy things around. This is what music is all about. This is the first Country Band to be featured on our show, so you know they are special.”

“It was incredible being introduced to Sawdust Road this weekend on stage. They are not only a talented group, but are also caring and inspiring individuals. Of all of the bands that got on that stage, I was most touched by the attitude and drive of Sawdust Road and I am so glad that the group offered their time and energy to this endeavor. I am doing all I can to promote them to all people I know. I know that this was not the last time I will see them live. WOW! What a group!”
