"Kalliope Jones shines bright with ‘Hand in Hand’"

"With “Hand in Hand,” Western Massachusetts teen-rockers Kalliope Jones have a nice palate cleanser to all that heaviness. The song is a pretty straightforward little blast of rock ‘n’ roll, bass-heavy and loosely structured around alternating vocals. It’s got a vibrancy and youthfulness about it, along with a sense of cleverness that makes the most of its bare-bones structure." - The Worcester Telegram



"Teen Girl Band Writes EPIC Response to Sexist Judge Who Said They Weren't "Sultry" Enough"

"Kalliope Jones is incredibly talented — seriously, we're blown away by this snippet of an original song they performed earlier this summer. (Note that ironically, one of the lyrics is "living in a teenage nightmare." These girls get it.)" - Seventeen Magazine

"Teen Girl Band Critiqued by Battle of the Bands Judges for Not 'Using the Sultry' Enough"

"Kalliope Jones – a Massachusetts-based all-girl band made up of 14 to 16 year olds – was told by judges at their local Three County Fair Battle of the Bands competition that they needed to “use the sultry to draw in the crowd” to take home the top prize." - People Celebrity

"What Your’e Listening To: Mehmet Ali Sanlikol and Whatsnext?, Shira and Kalliope Jones"

"...the reason to get the song is because it’s a great, pop-friendly blast of rock ‘n’ roll — equal parts serious-minded and bubbly fun, with an eye toward fearlessness that shines with each note: 'But when I looked across the water,” they sing, in the song penned by drummer Alouette Batteau, “You and I were gonna be slaughtered/But I don’t mind, I don’t mind If you say.../We’re not running today.'" - The Worcester Telegram

"Teen girl band Kalliope Jones fights sexism after being told to 'use the sultry'"

"Now the teen rock band, Kalliope Jones, is standing up for girls everywhere to make the point that women in the music industry don't have to use sex appeal to be successful. In notes the girls received after their performance on Saturday at the Three County Fair in Northampton, the band earned a score of 3 out of 5 in the stage presence and showmanship category, with a note to "use the sultry to draw in the crowd," adding that audience participation opportunities had been missed." - Today

"Worcester Telegram and Gazette Quote"

“...band’s more interesting tricks is how it utilizes the vocalists’ differing styles to great affect...illustrates how smart these young rockers really are...There’s a lightness here that’s not dampened by downbeat percussion and heavy bass, and it’s that spirit and cleverness that make Kalliope Jones a band worth watching.” -

"Live Music News and review.com Quote"

“With voices almost too big for their ages and drums harkening back to The White Stripes, this young girl band is one to keep your eye on!” -

"Upper Valley Music Festival Quote"

“...a delicious musical treat: Take three young women, pour in a liberal sense of adept musical timing, add hooks sharp enough to catch fish and fold in voices that go together like chocolate and peanut butter you will have the recipe for Kalliope Jones.” -


Still working on that hot first release.
