"Stephanie Salvo's beats and lyrics sound as if they are straight from urbania ("To the Top"), but on the second track – the title cut – she explodes with an edgy, noir jazz sound before sliding back into her hip-hop groove ("When I Come Around"). That aspect gives the Lord Ronin-produced Contradiction substantial weight; Salvo's insistent voice and commanding lyrics tattoo it with personal style."
"The last act to perform was the organizer of the event – “Stephanie Salvo”. Now I spoke with Stephanie early on in the afternoon, but I had no clue how amazing of a singer she is. When Stephanie started to soundcheck with Notion, my eyebrows raised and chills went down the back of my spine. This is just another reason why I love Austin, TX. Austin is an endless melting pot of talent, and you never know when or where you’re going to see it. Stephanie had myself and the other attendees eyes glued to the stage throughout her whole set. When she was performing I kept asking myself – why haven’t I heard of this female? I would not be suprised if you see Stephanie Salvo in the company of Christina Agulara, Pink or Gwen Stafani one day. Steph Salvo is very talented, undiscovered, hardworking, and down to earth. Be on the look out for her fam."
