"The bossa-flavored 'Smile' comes on like a breezy ballad but Tamara's vocals are hardened with a steely sheen, and she negotiates the song's complex chord changes and harmonic structures with disarming ease."

Liner Note Author: John Stedman.
Blues guitar man Lucky Peterson spent years establishing himself as a powerful singer, but on DARLING FOREVER, he cedes the vocal spotlight to his wife, Tamara. Fortunately, she proves more than able to take the reigns; her throaty, soulful voice fully inhabits tunes that mix contemporary blues, R&B, and funk. Her husband speaks mainly through his guitar here, but he does pitch in with vocals on a couple of tracks, and the pair's gifts make for quite the musical marriage.
