"...With the vigorous commanding energy and charisma of ten Beyoncés rolled into one... her presence on stage was magnetic and electrifying" - Tanya Bonnie Rae (themusic.com.au)
“The girl has charm and presence and style and charisma. Her voice and her personality fill the room. The songs have depth and the delivery oozes soul. Alphamama combines a raw, powerful sexuality with a smart, commanding toughness… She is going to explode and you’ll have to sell a child to get a ticket to see her. My advice is to get a ticket now while you still have the chance." - Benjamin (AMNPLIFY)
"She’s hip, she’s strong, she’s got one hell of a voice. ALPHAMAMA prizes creative expression over digestibility and injects much-needed passion into music." - Antigone Anagnostellis (Purple Sneakers)
