“Songwriters who turn their music into stories is becoming a rare pleasure, but Di Gregorio’s whole album is a palette of song and story, as with wistful tracks like Painted by Boldini, a powerful number that showcases her immense vocal prowess and her ability to create emotion with words, melancholy lyrics about a woman’s regrets.

The way she uses image-heavy descriptions and breathy vocals to paint pictures of lost loves and vintage moments turns what is already an enjoyable album into an inspirational call to arms to musicians everywhere. Reminding us that music comes in many intricate designs, The Whiplash Curve is audio utopia.”
