"Comparisons are odious, but ...
Katie Knipp is a true original. The closest I can come to a description is a cross bewteen Nina Simone and Mose Allison. Remarkable." -- Mick Martin, host of Blues Party on KZAP radio
“..... serves up a radiant platter of her patented NOLA-steeped brand of slidin’ blues rock — smokey, syrupy and ever-genuine” -Aaron Davis, The Sacramento Bee
“Her version of blues is raw and gritty, and she’s comfortable with a myriad of musical influences in her underlying soundtrack.” -Robert Leggett, No Depression Magazine
"Extraordinary vocals with lyrics that comfort or cut like a knife....delta deep slide and lusty insanity..this is the real deal Katie, brash and unruly, belting out originals from 6 previous releases as the band delivers in stereo- hi-fi tightly behind her." -Darrell Sage, Blues Matters Magazine
"Versatility. That's the word to properly define Katie Knipp's work. She is a gifted musician, able to not only play slide guitar, piano, and harmonica but mainly able to make her singing prevail over the textures of a song." -Marcel Innocentini, Blues Rock Review
“Knipp has continued to build an audience around the operatic intensity of her singing and the emotional whiplash of her lyric-writing, a style that she somehow channels through an experimental, genre-blending evolution of blues, rock and soul traditions. ” — The Sacramento News and Review
“Not only is her band several levels above your average blues combo and her own musical, vocal attributes enthralling; but her songwriting and lyrical abilities deliver humor, complexity and an emotional power that takes her art way beyond genre boundaries.” — American Blues Scene
"Knipp’s bold, impassioned style made everyone take notice. With her musical ferocity fully on display, as an instrumentalist and as a singer, Knipp’s no-holds-barred vocal style conjured audio images of a cross between Ani DiFranco and Koko Taylor." Alan Sheckter, Gratefulweb.com
