“Guns Under Water is all over the place, yet Numbers And Letters never sounds scattered or unfocused, thanks largely to the band’s charismatic frontwoman. She brings the house down.”
"With Numbers And Letters setting the tone for the night with their raw alt-country set, singer Katie Hasty flattened the audience with her vocals. The crowd already could hardly hold on to their beer cups..."
"[F]rontwoman Katie Hasty made me a believer from the moment she opened her mouth. It wasn't her affable Midwestern charm that changed my mind (though the fact that she gave away home-made cookies didn't hurt) but more the unwavering conviction with which she sang... She reached down deep and poured emotion not just from her lips but from her heart, her guts, the tips of her fingers and the soles of her feet."
“... the band's back porch sound evokes a place much different than the Brooklyn it calls home, with front-woman and Kansas City transplant Katie Hasty's emotion drenched voice recalling the best Memphis chanteuses of the past.”
"Brooklyn quintet Numbers and Letters spins rich roots pop shaded with the sort of Southern-gothic vibe that we're told comes only from, you know, the South."
"A new act that's worth checking out for some authentic feeling americana/folk..."
"Numbers And Letters may have taken up residence in Brooklyn, but they're Americana all around..."
“Between sending out CDs, playing live and writing for Billboard, band leader Katie Hasty took some time to answer a few questions. See what she had to say about Red Lobster, Bryan Adams and the reason she was cut from the third grade talent show.”
"Katie's got a great set of pipes, whether cooing in her jazz-inflected encore, ringing out in falsetto for a song about Jesus or digging in for a from-the-gut M. Ward cover. I'm eager for the upcoming EP; they're a fast-rising band with a gifted singer-songwriter at the helm."
"Numbers & Letters music is a musical hybrid of new americana, alt-country, boozy death ballads and more."
"A nice and wailey sort of alt-Americana, reflecting Kansan roots—which seems to make people a little angsty."
“M@N!C MOND@Y M!X!”
