HI Lorijoy!

It was so nice meeting you when I was up in May. I thoroughly enjoyed talking with you and spending time with both you and Kaolin. The night before I left, was a dream, something I would have done with old friends. Dinner, Ice Cream, guitar playing, laughing....ended all to soon, with a new friend and dear old friend. I'll treasure that memory. Sorry it's taking me this long to visit here. Crazy times....I love your work, beautiful writing, beautiful biography, very inspiring. I hope you are blessed with a long and deeply satisfying life of music making~dianers6t2y

Took some time to listen to you music on myspace. Made me miss you and the summers insanity. Awesome!


October 19, 2013

Thank you for sharing yourself thru your music at Napis. I only caught a portion,I suppose the part that was for me, and it moved me.

Keep doing you, you do it supremely. What a journey.

All the best,

Nothing is better than listening to you jam on the streets of P-Town. Surrounded by a family of fans jamming to the sweet sounds of you and your guitar. You rock! my soulful sista!

Love from Kansas City,

Just a thank you. We love both CD's. You convinced us to buy both even though we were skeptical that "Airplane" wouldn't deliver what we experienced of you as a solo performer. Well, you were right. Your energy and essence come through on both CD's and augment the memories of seeing you live, which is still our favorite way to experience you! No matter what, please continue to put yourself out there! Thanks, again.

The 3 Montrealers from last night!!!

We were lucky enough to stroll down Commercial Street in Ptown and catch your wonderful show that night. Damn Gurl - you made our night! Wonderful, wonderful!!


August 10, 2012

Hi Lorijo,

You were fantastic last night in P-Town. Like I said, you play a really sweet guitar! Wish I could have stayed and listened longer.

Looked over your website. Hope your grandmother got to celebrate her 101st birthday and wish her many more. I'd bet that the transit cop who ticketed you in NYC loved your music, too.

I'm putting myself on you email list and I'll watch your calendar for your visits to the Big Apple.

Peace, success and happiness to you!

I woke up from a dream this morning in which the name, "Harry Yanthis" was spoken. What it meant, I don't know, but Harry, Marie and Carol were no strangers to my family who are also from Rome, NY. Some of my family are still there. As a child, I'd been in the Chatham St.(?) house. The dream caused me to google Harry's name as see what I'd come up with. I was led to the article about your Grandmother's hot air balloon ride. WONDERFUL! I remember that they always made you feel like "family". I'm happy that what they nurtured in you was the freedom to express your art. It is no surprise to me. All the very best to you, Lorijo!


June 13, 2010

I saw you playing at night on Commercial St. in P-town in May, you were amazing! I would love to go to your show sometime. Seeing you there in the darkness of the evening, playing and singing the melody of your soul, was truly the highlight of May for me. Thank you!

Maya Evans

Nice to see you're still making music. It's a long time since the Heartland Cafe/The No Exit. Keep on goin'! =)


October 19, 2009

Really enjoyed listening to your beautiful voice and haunting chords warm the chilly night on Commercial Street in Provincetown. Thought to myself, "She wants it bad enough to do it in the cold rain. She'll do it." And you will. Are you gonna record that version of that Stones song you were playing? (Never did learn the name of that song, but you do it up right!)

Back in the day (Northwestern University)I met an enchanting young guitarist named LoriJO Manley. She impacted me so much that after meeting her, I was never the same person. Lord in heaven, could this be the same LoriJO? I remember Orion being her favorite constellation of staRS. HaS destiny crossed our paths once again?

Bill Ovca

July 14, 2009

Remembering the good old days when you were playing weekly gigs at the restaurant on the north side of Chicago. Never got to record the magic but still remember "whatca doing"
Yea, what!
Hope all is well.
