“You've really nailed the rock anthem formula, both in the composition and in the lyrics that are sure to resonate with women in music everywhere, and hopefully men, too. I see you've been honored by fellow musicians and bands, as well as music industry professionals, and it's easy to see why. You've got straight-ahead rock rhythms that will make audiences bang their heads, with catchy hooks and a chorus that will also make them sing along. You've got a unique voice and style that people will recognize, and your delivery is very convincing and "true to the lyric". The musicianship is more than adequate across the board and I particularly liked the tasty guitar work. The production is also of professional quality, with everything being well-balanced and having a good rock mix. I can't think of a thing I'd change. You really are the Rock Queen and there could be a market for you in Europe where they love American music!”
"Emyna The Rock Queens music is full of a chilled energy that still gets the blood running, while delivering positive messages."
“Hottest New Artist Award”
"It was a first class show all the way! This is a show that deserves to be somewhere on the Strip!"
“When the days Barack Obama enters the White House as first black President, imagine how many black female rock singers you know? Apart from the singer from Skunk Anansie or Mothers First there won’t be that much! Emyna is an exceptional artist, writes her own songs, plays a fine guitar and even performs on the keys. She has a powerful rock voice although I never had an idea she’s black as there is no expected soul in her voice. Perfect AOR! She got help from Jon Butcher who also wrote my favorite “When The Real Thing Comes Along”. Fantastic “Play With Me” (like Toronto), “Runaway” or “Run” makes this CD to a AOR highlight you easily have to put into the same league as Toronto or Envy. PERFECT!!”
