AllMusic Review by

Toni Price has been highly touted on the Southwestern blues circuit for quite a while, and rumors about a hot album surfaced long before it finally was available. Swim Away avoids some traps, especially the blues-rock overload and the crossover formula. Price shows that she's a genuine belter and also capable of doing softer tunes, romantic numbers, and the obligatory 12-bar songs. The title cut, an unaccompanied vocal, provides an outstanding climax to a very good debut release.
