Indie Voice Blog: "Their blues vibe is universal, and should propel them onto the worldwide stage, as their music is desperately needed here in America. This is a band you would love to spend the night listening to, as their rocking blues sound envelopes you and gets you in the mood for just about anything. The vocals are second to none and reminiscent of the powerful chops of artists like Beth Hart and Tina Turner. You can't go wrong with this one, as every song is powerful and worthy of multiple listens."
Bluesnews: "You can easily get a quick thought of a tight band with great vibes, and especially with the female vocalist on the right side of Beth Hart in Heidi "Bluesmo" Blåsmo. A little rude and expressive vocal with a soul and rock power that also sends some of my thoughts back to 1983 and the Australian rock band The Divinyls. A very good lady behind the microphone here, thundering in with an incredible attitude and who you believe in directly!"
