“REVIEW OF MALYSSA & LIBERATORS EP RELEASE Acclaimed singer-songwriter Malyssa BellaRosa...sultry vocals remain intact, but this debut five-track EP is best served cranked up...BellaRosa’s dynamic vocal range is pretty damn potent, even while sleeping until 3 pm and drinking a fifth of gin on “Lover Undercover,” and she and DeNardo harmonize well on the closing track, “Me Without You.” Bella-Rosa continues to play out as a solo singer-songwriter, but the promising early returns on this EP assures that we’ll be hearing plenty more from Malyssa & the Liberators. The band has recently shared stages with a wide array of acts, from founding Parliament-Funkadelic legend Bernie Worrell to local slayers Olneyville Sound System and Lolita Black.”
“Lead singer of Providence rock & roll band Fall & Bounce and an extremely talented individual in her own right, the lovely Malyssa Bellarosa went up next with her beautiful voice and rhythmic guitar while everyone basked in the greatness. "Shine", "All My Love", "Never Be", "No Reason", "Of The Girl", "Right From Wrong" and "Out Of Time" encompassed a magnificent performance that exuded brilliance. **Live show review - Fete in Providence - 12/22/12”
“BellaRosa shares Taylor Dayne's vocal power, and is as alluring as Neve Campbell would be if Neve got sexy on ecstasy...She is a first-rate talent. **review of Fall & Bounce show 12/17/12 at the Trash Bar, Brooklyn NY**”
“Speaking of sultry sass, Malyssa BellaRosa leads FALL & BOUNCE (reverbnation.com/fallandbounce) on its 2012 debut Knickknack Avalanche. F&B bob and weave through hazy '70s rock and blues numbers, while BellaRosa shines on "Words Fall." (Fall & Bounce took Best Breakthrough Act of 2012 in the BMP.) Read more: ”
“All My Love” leaps into a Heart-Pat Benatar mode with an acoustic-electric guitar mesh. Bellarosa gets 1970s style belty in her chorus. She kicks scratches, and claws her way through this tough mama vocal approach. Listeners will like the way she sings this song while at the same time becoming afraid to run into her in a dark alley. This one could be a bad ass hit single.”
