“As produced by Rich Brotherton, Margo Valiante's blues on five-song EP I Can't Pray favor the Bonnie Raitt/Americana style. That's a comfortable and expressive place for Valiante to be since relocating to Austin. With warm organ work from Riley Osbourn and supple suede vocals, there's an overall soulfulness that buys her a ticket into the ranks of Austin's established female vocalists.”
“It’s a voice like hers that will move you. Valiante’s EP “I Can’t Pray” is a good preview of her forthcoming full-length release…”
"She sings great, she writes great, she performs great, the band's great; it's the whole package. Check out her shows - you'll see."
“Valiante sings the blues high, strong and convincing, her voice rising above the sound of a slide guitar...”
"Valiante seems equally at home with a brooding Gillian Welch song or handling the halting jazz style of the late Eva Cassidy."
"Give her a blues number, though, and you’d better give her room, she can really belt it."
“Valiante gets noticed as soon as she opens her throat. Fronting the local band Boondocks, the Skidmore College music grad can convincingly cover a lot of ground between jazz, country and rock.”
"She is a soulful songwriter with a really beautiful, powerful voice."
