“Jackie totally captivated the crowd. In fact, she got the audience to participate in, not one, but two, sing-a-longs. By the end of her set, the audience was so enraptured that Tohn received a standing ovation that lasted well over a minute.
Summary: This young artist is a star in the making. Jackie Tohn has a special gift and there are not many like her. So, while she's still paying her dues, try to catch her when you can. If you wait too long, it may very well cost you much more.”

“WINNER- BEST MUSIC VIDEO for "What is Love" 2010.”
Hollywood Music in Media Awards
“She is celebrating the release of her new CD, Beguiling, with a performance at the Hotel Cafe. While this album is clear accomplishment-- Velvet Coat and Places I Can Stand are mind melters -- listening to Miss Jackee (no relation) solely on a recording would be akin to watching a Jello commercial and calling it dessert.
Live is this child’s medium. And until she gets a team of NASA professionals willing to take her to outerspace in an attempt to capture the massive magic of her sound, you best be attending the up close and close version.”
“If Jackie Tohn lived on a park bench, she would put on shows for the pigeons.
She can't help it. Some people believe there is no such thing as a natural, but Tohn is wired to entertain.
On stage, she's a cross between Bette Midler (only better looking) and Lauryn Hill.
“This New York native can belt out a catchy heartfelt ballad with an intensity that could knock Taylor Swift out of her pickup truck.
“Jackie Tohn sings with the power of at least four or five human beings, shes a natural storyteller on stage, she’s gorgeous and she knows it, and she writes songs about men clothing and fish. Her music is pretty pop with a twitch; a paradox of vulnerability and arrogance, honesty and exaggeration, swagger and silliness. Sounds like the perfect woman, doesn’t it?
“If you combine the songwriting skills of Laura Nyro, the gutsy earthiness of Janis Joplin, and the cool, bohemian style of Ricki Lee Jones, you'll have some idea of Jackie Tohn. And, tho some may think those references are dated, you have to go back that far to find artistry this good.
Tohn's acoustic rock material is utterly compelling.”

“Jackie Tohn, on acoustic guitar, croons with remarkable vocal dexterity about low self-esteem and love.”
“THIS ALBUM IS AWESOME! I LOVE JACKIE TOHN ON AMERICAN IDOL AND I LOVE LISTENING TO HER IN MY HONDA CIVIC. PRETTY MUCH I LOVE JACKIE TOHN - BUY IT!”
“Jackie Tohn. The Tohnerino. The Tohnmeister. The Tohnster. The Tohnorama. Makin’ muuuuusic. I swear if this girl was a lumberjack instead of an entertainer there’d be no more trees.
To simply call Jackie Tohn a singer/songwriter would be like describing the Rocky Horror Picture Show as a musical. It’s true, but dreadfully misleading. Energy Plus with an affinity for theatrics, little miss facial expressions is a freak for flair.”
