"Big bold brassy intro that showcases Kelly's amazing soul drenched voice. Energetic and gritty power driven interpretation with an attitude that makes a powerful statement. Mo Beeks riffs all over this one and man it sounds so very right as this band just nails it. Tight as can be with an in your face attitude the band are fearless in their attack on this song. All in all this will make anybody sit up and take attention. Wow you have me in the palm of your hand Ms. Kelly Z."  - Peter Merrett PBS 106.7

"Appreciated throughout Europe since his album "Live in Brussels" in 2011, it's a safe bet that Kelly Z will return very quickly in countries such as the United Kingdom, the Netherlands, Germany or France. We cross fingers …" - Zicazac Magazine, France

"Kelly Z is calling her new disc a “Rescue” but it sounds as fresh as anything out today which may be it’s real redemption." —Roger and Margaret White - Big City Blues Magazine
