SAN DIEGO TROUBADOUR FRONT PORCH FEATURE, JULY 2016 ISSUE
Back in Action with M. E. Law, By Frank Kocher
m.e. sat down for a friendly interview/visit with Frank Kocher to talk about life as a working musician with a busy and varied career. Thank you Frank. Here's an excerpt:
"Her music is at the same time soft and ethereal and wickedly satirical and clever—with lyrics that have to be listened to. Her melodies may be Bossa Novas or floating folk themes and can change in the next moment into a quirky observational blues or jazz statement about our ever-more puzzling world. M E Law has a uniquely Canadian view on life and music."
By Frank Kocher, August 2016 issue, San Diego Troubadour
m.e. gets well deserved praise for her Laughing My A.O. EP in Kocher's San Diego Troubadour review, "a great listen, from an artist who needs to be heard."

CD review in San Diego Troubador April 2015 issue
Journalist, musician and music collector, Frank Kocher, reviews m.e.'s Peace, Love, death and Chocolate CD with well-deserved praise: "Law, by turns, is a breathy, almost ethereal folk songstress, weaving atmospheric tales that bring to mind a rootsy Kate Bush, then in the space of a track can either get down and bluesy, soar over a jazzy lattice, or play quirky observational pop with clever lyrics." Read the full article, listen to (and buy) the CD, you will agree, m.e. is the real singer/songwriter deal.
