"Liz Ficalora"

“One of those rare percussionists who approaches the drum kit as an instrument.
Liz is the drummer your band always dreamed about but never thought existed.”
- C.J. Watson Editor and Chief The Nashville Rant

"Music Row"

"It's a little under-produced, but the song has a cool hook and the wah-wah electric guitar behind her dry vocal is teasing and wonderfully ear-catching.

reviewer: Robert K. Oermann - Music Row Magazine May 2002

"Om Azna magazine"

From the lively title cut of "Out of Nowhere", the funky rhythms of "Get it Together", to the flowing and compelling lyrics in "Beauty" this CD is at once remarkable for its fine musicianship, its originality, and its soul. This is a CD you will be playing over and over again. Check it out!

- Patricia Martin
