"I really enjoyed the show. First off, the energy was fantastic! I think you've got a really unusual and compelling stage presence. The boldness, the choreography, the somewhat androgynous (?) carriage, the audience participation— it's all great performance."
— Evan Murphy, founder and CEO of SightReading Mastery.com
"BARREN LOVERS challenged my aural universe."

"[Barren Lovers] sounds how I imagine Depeche Mode and Freddy Mercury doing a collab."
— Nigel Jones
"Your set was great: I was pleasantly surprised by your music (not that I wasn't expecting it to be good, just that I had no idea what to expect). I thought it was fresh, galvanizing, and very entertaining. And this is coming from a girl who grew up in Music City USA and who has been exposed and become accustomed to amazing amazing musicians. I was sadly disappointed when I left Nashville to find that it was hard to match the quality of live music I found there."
