People need to hear Jessi's voice. She is an artist who sings with a sincerity that will melt people's souls. Mine did. - Solo Artist and Long-Time Guitarist for Sting

Jessi Hamilton is a young artist that shows great promise. ‘I’ll Cry For You’ is a passionate song, beautifully produced and meticulously arranged. We’re proud to have bragging rights, discovering her early in what is sure to be a great career. - Editor in Chief, RockRGrl Magazine

"Narada Michael Walden"

(Jessi Hamilton) has a really beautiful voice, with a lot of vibrato. It is reminiscent of both Stevie Nicks and Madonna. My favorite tracks were (‘I'll Cry For You’) and (‘Watching River’) because of their hooks... - Grammy Award Winning Producer / Musician for Aretha Franklin, Elton John, Whitney Houston, Mariah Ca

"John Bungey"

(Jessi Hamilton) has a fine voice and the material is strong. She's obviously a talent… - Mojo Magazine

"Michael A. Cimino"

Her classical background has paid off, because what you don't hear in any of the other contemporary pop stars is any musical back ground. It's all production value. Jessi Hamilton seems to know what her vision is already and that's half the battle. There are few young artists here in America that have the kind of grasp on music history that Jessi Hamilton shows here. - Cottage Views Rock News

"Vince Marino"

Don’t be fooled! Jessi Hamilton is not some gorgeous fashion model who wants to be a singer. Ok, the gorgeous part is true, but trust me, this girl can sing! And she’s a quirky, intelligent songwriter too. You’ll be glad you were introduced to Jessi Hamilton. - ABC Radio Network

"Tony Infantino"

Jessi Hamilton's voice is innocent, sensual and needs to be heard. - CBS Radio

I am honored to be working with Jessi Hamilton. These are great songs with very strong melodies. She is a remarkable talent. - Lead Singer of Foreigner
