“Jill Porter is the real deal in a time when rock and roll is often smothered by high-speed rap and bubble gum pop. This straight-shooting, raspy-voiced “lady rocker” gives us hope that rock and roll with never die. Long live rock and roll! And long live Jill Porter!”
“One of the provinces most daring female artists…”
The Newfoundland Hearld
“Jill Porter has a voice like a smoky whisky on a gravel road….”
The Beat, CBC television
“Upon the first 1 or 2 listens of Jill Porter's promising debut one hears the strains of the raunchier side of Stevie Nicks, the attitude of Lucinda Williams and the rock n roll spirit of the Rolling Stones circa 1972.
“Porter's rock n roll heart is worn like a personal tattoo. This guitar driven record is a success.
“It’s a big record, strong all around. Music, voice and lyrics, Porter’s put together a record that’s great to listen to, beginning to end”
“Porter’s voice is like a partridgeberry-flavoured, soft-serve cone from a highway service station-smooth and delectable but with a wild natural kick.”
“By combining the smoky undertones of Stevie Nicks with the lustful cheekiness of Liz Phair, Porter's attitude is reminiscent of the early '90s riot grrrl scene. Lyrically, the petite brunette sings her diary scrawl, gushing on about forlorn love, rock 'n' roll and sipping tea”
“Porter is known for her dynamic songwriting, strong on-stage presence and dedication to her musical career”
“Jill Porter is sassy and smart-a contemporary newfoundland performe of incredible potential”
