"Heather Rice. The vocal love child of Patty Griffin and Celine Dion"
Carly Wolfson, Creative Entertainment Group

"Like an exquisite piece of vintage oil painting, there are splashes of folk-country, dashes of New Orleans blues, splurges of New Age-y jazz, and gallops of old school gospel." This is one of the most enjoyable and colorful albums in a long while."
Timothy Yap, Hallels Magazine

"A singer-songwriter known for her unique vocal interpretations of material in the jazz and pop realms."
Orlando Sentinel

"Opening (for Joan Osborne) was Heather Rice, another strong-voiced woman whose piano ballads soared."
Jodi Duckett MusikFest
