"Reminding me of some of the great music that I've heard from the Projekt label...the female vocals/harmonies are especially great...definite ear candy... " - Tim MacAleese, Canadian Rawk Network
"This music instantly brings up images of the Smiths meets the Cowboy Junkies. It is part sixties folk and part twenty-first century rural meets urban adventurism..."- Chris K., Pro Critic Radio
"...A prismatic and charismatic performer with many unique and important things to say." - Danica Nolan, Indiemark
"Rusticated soft rock with finely meshed female vocals.. will make listeners think of the tradition- steeped melodies of Kate and Anna McGarrigle and the October Project." - Listen
