Belle of the West is just an explosion of talent." –No Depression

"An impressive blues guitarist who sings with sweet power" and "one of the genre's most promising young talents."  New York Times

"It's unlikely Fish, or many other acts, will deliver two terrific, yet very different sounding albums in a single year again. But she's on a career roll now, taking advantage of youthful energy, enthusiasm and talent to push outside the blues-rock envelope so many get confined (and defined) by, proving Fish's musical creativity knows few boundaries."   American Songwriter
