"Stunningly sung...Magness is a blues star"

USA Today

“Magness is a bold and potent artist of the highest order, with a powerful, soulful voice...impossible to forget.”

Blues Revue

“Janiva Magness slow-burns and romps heart-first...she never injects contrived emotion, never puts a tear in her voice where one doesn’t belong. She simply sings heartbreak, hunger and humor—sings ‘em with equally great chops and feeling—and lets that speak for itself.”

No Depression

“A superb, powerhouse R&B singer who delivers blues and soul with show-stopping authority”
