“Kelli Rae Powell's sass recalls jazz and country, and her lyrics are kind of adorable.”
“Kelli is a talented folkstress, a great performer and a wonderful entertainer. Particularly suited for all the ones who have relationship problems.”
"Powell has that kind of star power, white-knuckle intensity and raw charisma that you only see once every ten years or so."
"Kelli Rae Powell applies her sweet voice to mellifluous ukelele plucks and brushed drums, as on her album New Words for Old Lullabies."
“(NWFOL #9 on Lucid Culture's 50 Best Albums of 2009) The amazingly lyrical oldtimey chanteuse alternates between sultry, devious romantic stylings and sheer unhinged anger.”
"Powell’s an amazing lyricist...A fearless and charismatic performer, her ceiling is awfully high..."
