Alexis P. Suter has a big voice and knows how to use it. Whether singing about spiritual ecstasy or earthly troubles, her booming contralto, seasoned with raw emotion make every song she performs her own. -Kay Cordtz, Blues Revue Magazine
She's got a voice that could bring down the tower of Babel. She may be the best blues singer on the east coast. She's played the Midnight Rambles with Levon Helm for over two years now, but she should be playing in palaces and kingdoms to kings and queens. -Joe Vignola, Long Island Blues News
It's all about a voice telling stories through music, and big voiced Alexis P. Suter possess the perfect a power. Her fire and brimstone expression is endowed with a complexity and depth that stands up to any musical style. Her profound lyric expression partners with her band to become another lead instrument, turning emotion into blistering music. -Art Tipaldi, Blues Music Magazine
