The best kept secret in music


"The Jori Costello Sound"

Although Jori Costello has been compared to Joni Mitchell, one had no doubt that in the near future, such comparisons will be forgotten, as the "Jori Costello Sound" takes solid hold in the region. Her strong voice takes commandof her audience and refuses to let go; her jazzy tones mingling with an equally strong blues background never fails to impress those listening. - Ozark Mosaic: Richard S. Drake

"Armed With Her Guitar"

"Costello usually takes the stage armed only with her guitar and her voice. Typically placed in the folk category...although her powerful voice is more reminiscent of an acoustic Fiona Apple or Ani DiFranco." - Northwest Arkansas Times

"Seamless Performance"

"....gutsy singing voice as she belts out... a wide range of voice and instinctively knows how to deliver a variety of songs with tons of feeling and inflection. Her guitar playing- infectious, melodic, precise... seamless performance." - Ozark Gazette

"Any Stage, Any Size"

"...Costello is big sound. Her talent and crystal clear voice and delivery could carry her to any stage of any size." - Fayetteville Free Weekly

"Living Proof"

"Jori Costello is living proof that music is an integral part of each of us. Through the magic of her music, ...She inspires healing, action, and provokes serious reflection about our lives and the choices we make everyday." - Ozark Gazette

""Home Grown""

"Home Grown" reveals a surprisingly diverse performer..." - Northwest Arkansas Times

"Fusion of folk, rock, blues and jazz."

The music is a sophisticated fusion of folk rock, blues and jazz, and Jori seems comfortable traversing it all. Jori has a richness and smoothness of voice that is best heard in "My Favorite ride" and "Testimony," though showcased throughout the entire CD. "The Mother Song" still has the power to bring tears even after all this time. Tradionally, "My Least Favorite Things" is always a clear favorite amongst fans, a twist on the more well-known song titled "My Favorite Things." - Ozark Gazette


"A glance at the cover of the new CD is deceiving. Costello looks like an innocent, fledgling folk singer, however, when you listen to the CD, you'll hear a voice as rich and powerful as the big names whom Costello has long admired." - Fayetteville Free Weekly
