  1. Brian Lush says:

    “[This band] sound is the combination of Kim’s impressive command of that indefinable voice that goes from gospel, to soul, to jazz and to rock in a seconds notice; and the dexterity of guitarist and partner-in-crime Steve. Who knew such sounds, textures, and imagination could come from just six strings.” – Brian Lush, Rockwired

  2. Michael Heyliger says:

    “[This band] revives the spirit of the golden era of bands from the 70’s & 80’s criss-crossing rock, jazz, and soul into a sound that’s both contemporary and timeless….an air-tight band and a bewitching front woman.” – Michael Heyliger, RhythmFlow
