“His guitar work echoes that of veterans like Stevie Ray Vaughan and even Joe Bonamassa. But it’s Jocelyn’s vocal ability that karate chops through the mix, grabs you by the throat, and slams you to the dojo floor.”
-Rock and Blues Muse
“When they perform live there is a power-blues component created. Imagine Stevie Nicks meets Stevie Ray Vaughan.”
“One couldn’t help but to just be amazed at her raw, Janis Joplin-inspired voice. Chris Arndt morphed from John Mayer to Eddie Van Halen to Jimi Hendrix and back again.”
