TRAX - Pasadena Weekly

Blasting forth defiantly (“You say you’re gonna change/ But I ain’t staying to find out”) with the throbbing “Memphis,” the Minnesota blueswoman throws down a gauntlet and sets a high bar of expectations that the rest of this 13-track album generally meets. It showcases her as a singing, songwriting (with guitarist Mark Lamoine), guitar-playing, self-producing, self-aware powerhouse, but the driving force is unquestionably her voice — a formidable instrument she wields with soul and taste. RIYL Shemekia Copeland and Janiva Magness.
