"The voice of a folk queen...Velella has the power to relate to current situations and emotions that haunt us all and touches our hearts...if you have the chance to see her, do so immediately."
“...In a way, she seems to be part Joan Baez, Dolly Parton and Ernest Hemingway...She is embodying the life that many people are seeking these days: a simplification...the desire to be disconnected from the constant drone of the rest of the world"
"...She accomplishes the rare feat of encapsulating confidence and vulnerability in a single performance...the Damien Jurado-esque characteristic of feeling both lush and sparse at the same time"
"Beautifully passionate music."
