"I always wondered what it would have been like to be at Club 47 when Joan Baez first walked into perform. Now I know when Alice started singing in our studio tonight. She possesses one of the finest voices of any female singer-songwriter coupled with a warm and engaging stage presence." - Rich Warren, host, WFMT Chicago's Midnight Special and Folkstage
“...I could listen to her sing for hours. Her voice is beautiful as a bell, classic in that Joan Baez way, transporting, wistful…her vocal mastery and musicality are beyond her young years and her songs stay in my head for days.” -Antje Duvekot
"How can a singer-songwriter have a voice like a broken angel's bell and write songs that could be a week or a hundred years old all at once? Alice Howe, that's how." - Vance Gilbert
“Classic emotive folk reminiscent of Kate Wolf, Alice Howe's earnest lyrics and heart-melting vocals might be the musical equivalent of lying in the dark beneath a clear sky of stars.” - Robby Hecht
