“Claire Anne Taylor is a rare kind of singer. Her extraordinary voice comes from some deep elemental place and audiences can’t help but be touched by it.” – Sista Mary, Bay FM Byron Bay
“With husky sounds reminiscent of the deep south and swelling rhythms. Devil is a song that pours wickedness into a shot glass, and slams it down like a punch in the gut.” - Christie Ots, Blank Magazine.
