“Much of the new album’s brilliance radiates not only from Hughes’ glowing cello playing, singing, and songwriting, but also the smoldering heat from Bottom Heavy, the band she’s been fronting for four years..” – JOHN MURPH, DOWNBEAT MAGAZINE

“Marika Hughes makes a joyful noise at the intersection of classical, jazz and experimental avenues on her solo outing . . . In her hands the sound melts with the warm tones and disciplined approach . . . her varied arsenal of sound, textures and approach is on display here, as is her voice . . . she croons an infectious blues” – Mark Corroto, All About Jazz
