“..plays solo with enough energy, enthusiasm - and talent - for a whole band. When this Australian is on stage doing her thing, don't try and stop her. She can be tender, refined - but she can also cut loose with an amazing wall of sound that will blow you away.”

“Basically, Locke's kind of a hero for independent musicians. She's gained international success, received awards and has sold an impressive number of albums all on her own sweat and elbow grease. She's and embodiment of DIY.”
