Norway Rock Magazine
“Tora has an incredible talent and is the most courageous guitarist I have ever met – throws herself fearlessly into a jam session with the likes of Jennifer Batten and Paul Gilbert – just like that.”
Larvik Guitar Festival
“The band surprises with own tracks and solid, raw blues/soul/rock performances. It is incredibly liberating to observe that the genre is subject to recruitment of such excellent quality and – on top of that – In a highly male-dominated genre, it is a delight to witness that the tradition is brought forward by a talented young lady.”
“Tora is something as exceptional as an incredibly talented and soulful blues–rock guitarist, aged only 24. I cannot imagine a better example of what the blues tradition needs than her.”
