"Greatly Entertained"

"It’s been a while since I’ve heard a voice as distinctive as that of Melissa Levi’s. It was hard at first to compare it to anyone in particular..."
- Triple El Es - Seattle Subsonic

"Demo Review"

A distinctive frontwoman, singer Melissa Levi ranges from a throaty purr to a soaring trill and back again. Her investment in and commitment to these songs is compelling... - Music Connection

"Music Review"

Songwriter-vocalist-guitarist Melissa Levi uses alternate keys and tunings to produce songs of amazing complexity. - Nusi Dekker - Music Reviews

"Album Review"

Melissa Levi's powerful voice varies between sometimes edgy-mellow dramatic like PJ Harvey to a soft and introspective Dave Matthews on "Crash".
