"Becky Boyd, a singer of such strength, she could make a lot of 'No Girls Allowed' signs get ripped off the clubhouse doors... She possesses a powerful blues/jazz voice that’s forceful, sensuous and as clear as spring water. If there’s a jazz buff in the Cleveland area who hasn’t heard Boyd sing yet, do something about that. She has got the art of scat singing down cold. Becky Boyd is a local talent to watch." - Steve Byrne, Scene Magazine

"Becky Boyd is a local pro, who makes the magic happen." - Harmonica Blue, Strange Brew Magazine
