“The Kentucky-born, New York-based Hill is a songwriting angel, carved from the mold of greats like Joni Mitchell. With electric harp as the main instrument, Hill and her band produce tracks that fascinate and mesmerize an audience, falling somewhere in between indie rock and psychedelic pop… Her lyrical sensibility is unique, bolstered by her fascination with science fiction…” – Louisville Eccentric Observer (Farrah Johnson, Dennis O’Neil)
“The music is beautiful. Voice exquisite… The instrumental material melds into its required whole with quirky, painted details highlighting the surface. The totality makes a noise that cloaks the soul.” – Radio 3, BBC (Robert Worby)
