"...but we would pay money to hear Steadwell just by herself. This is an artist to watch.” -DCIST, 2015
“Not only do their controversial lyrics address issues with the contemporary mainstream music scene, but their spoken poetry also confronts racism and the erasure of women of color from mainstream queer culture. “ -QWOC Media, 2013
