“Watch Out! They've turned up the heat! The Janiva Magness Band jumps from the word go. Magness connects with genuine passion as the band, with its fat, driving tone, draws it out of her. She enters as one of the best new singers in this genre.” - Rich DelGrosso, Associate Editor, Blues Revue

“...From start to finish, she's a singer who comes off as sexy and smart without ever over - singing or resorting to red-hot mamma tripe.” - Southland Blues Magazine

“...an up and coming blues shouter…Watch Out!” - Living Blues Magazine

“...This woman is the real thang with a powerful Delta by-way-of hollywood voice” - BAM
