"Suzy Williams, whom I once called "L.A.'s Diva Deluxe" in the L.A. Weekly because of her unsurpassable position on the top shelf of red hot mamas, continues to belt standards, the blues and her originals - 24 new ones in the last ye ar alone! I'd also add that she's funny as hell and a heart-melting gorgeous dame." -Michael Simmons, Huffington Post, 5-08 and http://www.laweekly.com/2008-10-30/music/music-picks-orphics-roky-erickson-madonna/3
"Suzy is too cool. Not only does she cover music from bygone years with gusto, but she breathes new life into an aging genre with a flair few can match." - Daniel Archuleta, Santa Monica Daily Press
"What makes Suzy Williams so remarkable is her loyalty to the lyric and musical sensiblities of an age she cou ldn't be old enough to remember. She executes her ecclectic originals and incendiary interpretations of standards recalling the 1950s Central Avenue juk e joint, jump tune, dark bar blues b ites with stylish aplomb and high octane lyrical deliverance." - Poet Michael C Ford.
