"Pro Songwriter Emma-Lee had her own recording to do" - SOCAN Words & Music Magazine Article

"Toronto's best female vocalist!"
- NOW Magazine Readers Poll (2013 & 2014)

"Compelling and awe-inspiring. Amazing voice."
- Maverick Magazine UK

"A top shelf songwriter. She's destined for big things."
- The Toronto Star (**** 4/4)

"I'm a fan of Emma-Lee's lyrical work. But then there is the matter of using the voice in a sublime manner, on material worthy of such a tool. Here Emma-Lee thrives."
- The Globe & Mail

"Blessed with a voice that sounds powerful and fragile at the same time, Emma-Lee displays a subtlety and nuance in her phrasing that one usually associates with an older and more experienced singer. On every occasion Emma-Lee’s voice and intuitive understanding of musical dynamics rise to the challenge of the sophisticated arrangements she sings over. The most beautiful voice I have heard in recent memory."
