“Crownover’s voice is a joy as always, and the program offers a nice assortment of torchy soul, uptempo blues, classic soul, and even a little bit of trad jazz. Very fun.” – by Rick Anderson CD Hotlists
“Sunny Crownover is mostly known for her scorching interpretations of classic swing, jazz and blues tunes alongside Duke Robillard, who produced this album. With Right Here, Right Now, she broadens her sultry appeal. She has a voice that works as well with new material as it does with the classic material that she’s known for…this album is full of surprises like that, whether it’s Sunny Crownover’s ability to phrase unpredictably, or the stellar blending of her vocals with the supporting instrumentation, the balance of which is always perfection.” - By Greg Victor Parcbench
“…Crownover steps up to the mic with a load of blue eyed soul …Here’s a white girl that has real soul that goes deeper than just performance. Well done by a crew that can’t deliver any less.”
– by Chris Spector Midwest Record

by Sheryl and Don Crow Nashville Blues Society
“..Sunny didn't just change up labels, though, she also made a rather noticeable left turn into soul, r&b, and contempo blues…This becomes really evident in the second cut, One Woman Man, a melodic, slo-burning, relaxed, torchy number with satiny work from Robillard and Sunny's own well modulated vocals, cool but direct and subtly smoldering.” by Mark S. Tucker AcousticMusic.com
“There is a strong consistency to the performances throughout… on this excellent album. Sunny Crownover’s earlier recordings displayed talent and promise. On Right Here, Right Now, she has certainly arrived.” By Ron Weinstock DC Blues Society / In A Blue Mood
“This is a really good cd of contemporary blues that includes, in the best blues tradition, music about life, love, joy and heartache. ..Her stunning vocals simply knock this one out of the park. I love Duke’s guitar tone throughout the recording… and he expertly produces her latest and she uses both him and his great band to provide the punch behind her beautiful vocals.” By A.J. Wachtel The Blues Blog

“Sunny Crownover is a revelation – a soulful blues chanteuse who, backed by Duke Robillard and a stellar cast of musicians including Bruce Bears, Mark Texeira, Doug James and Sugar Ray Norcia, delivers a wonderfully diverse set of blues that showcase her burgeoning talent… fired by lowdown piano and harp, and you have a set guaranteed to highlight Crownover’s prodigious talents “Right Here Right Now.”
By Mike Rainsford Blues in Britain
“ The warm golden tone befitting a singer named Sunny has been lighting up blues joints from Dallas-Fort Worth to Boston...Sunny’s edgeless phrasing takes full advantage of it’s glow to curl teasingly around all that steaminess with an impish wink of the eye. But she’ll just as freely soar up with the horns sculpting out “Oh Yes I Will” or flex some muscle bawling out the harp-and-slide thumper “Trust Your Lover.”
By Dennis Rozanski Bluesrag CD review
“Right here, Right Now” is an excellent CD, by a great singer and some incredible musicians. Hopefully next time Duke comes to town, he’ll bring Sunny Crownover along!” by Conrad Sewer Suncoast Blues Society
