Check out Rich Larson's (editor of Southern Minn Scene) review of Darker Than Blue. In it Larson says; "On her sophomore effort Darker Than Blue, Meyers has assembled a backing band worthy of Emmylou Harris or Loretta Lynn. Featuring guitarist/vocalist David Huckfeldt, guitarist Erik Koskinen, bassist James Buckley and drummer Jeremy Hanson, along with a host of special guests, Meyers has the cream of the crop standing behind her, allowing her to present her music in the best possible light. The results are spectacular. Let’s be clear, Barbara Jean is in this company because she belongs there. A true triple threat of instrumentalist, vocalist and songwriter, Meyers’ talent stands as tall as anyone else you’ll hear. She’s a virtuoso on the fiddle, the viola and the banjo. She’s been writing music since she was 13. And somehow amid all of that, she has developed an impossibly beautiful voice."
