Some recent press for Laura Benitez & the Heartache's debut "Heartless Woman" (Nov. 4th, 2014 Release Date):
"A wonderful album in which to wallow and resurface from; Heartless Woman is an Americana/Country classic in the making."
Ian D. Hall -- LIVERPOOL SOUND & VISION
"This is an album full of genuine Country songs which should appeal to all lovers of this type of music and others beyond. It has real quality and improves with each new listen." Rory Stanbridge -- FATEA
"Benitez said that she enjoys when fans mistake her original songs for covers. 'The biggest compliment is when fans tell me they love one of my songs and ask, 'who’s that by?' It tickles me when people can’t tell the difference between the covers we do and the original songs I’ve written.'” --Guitar Girl Magazine
