"Joni Mitchell’s sly and perceptive confessional meets Fiona Apple’s confrontational doomed romantic, with little hints of Tori Amos’ gonzo earth mother and Carole King’s practical warmth. ...like Joni, she swoops and dives and repeats rushed phrases,..Her voice is expressive, and her lyrics can be engaging..." Offbeat Magazine, New Orleans
"Listen if you like Sara Bareilles...sure to brighten your day with the upbeat piano, Maclaine’s infectious smile..." 303 Magazine, Denver, Colorado
