POPDOSE

"...everything about this album is right; she has the gift of constructing memorable songs; quality melodies and smart (probably beyond her years) lyrics"  

— Rob Ross

INNOCENT WORDS

"..Lyrically, comparisons to folks like Dylan and Kristofferson are warranted as she has a way of taking relatable topics and making them come off as fresh and original."

 — John B. Moore

WASHINGTON POST

"At Iota, she made Bob Dylan’s 'Isis' sound like one of her own longer, more conversational compositions...the most exhilarating moments of the Iota show entered uncharted territory...her dynamic set traveled beyond both Egypt and Americana."

— Mark Jenkins

 START NASHVILLE 

"...reminds us of an Egyptian Patsy Cline with influences from Elvis Costello and Presley both."

 

STEREO EMBERS MAGAZINE: Lightning Strikes

"...all of it draped in a sound that’s countrified lush but intimately sincere, attributes that, while surely the result of all that patience meeting all that talent and converging in the trailing wake of Ms Said’s pen, will regardless ensure her of a lasting and rewarding future. √√√½"  

— Dave Cantrell
