“If she were a chef, her spice cabinet would need restocking daily. Brooklyn’s Mary Ellen Bernard seasons her material to taste, and cooks with a high flame…. It’s fun, it’s classy, it’s tongue-in-cheek as all hell.” – Mark Keating, Sound Views (New York, NY)

“… a multi-faceted, personality-infused, urban carnival … held together by a sassy, cabaret-style sensibility, given a dramatic flair that confirms her background as an actress and stand-up comic.” – Seth Rogovoy, The Berkshire Eagle (Pittsfield, MA)

“ [One of] the ten best albums of 1996 that you’ve probably never heard of (but should have): This Brooklyn-based chanteuse follows up her debut album with another intriguing eclectic collection of songs that shows her versatility in a wide range of styles.” – Steve Bornstein, Mixx Magazine Arts & Entertainment (CT, NY & Boston)

“I have no clue how to describe this music. it’s got a bit of big band, some Americana, a nice acoustic feel, and enough humor to keep you wondering!” – INDIcator: Indie Music Reviews (Internet)
