“Dani Wilde is a modern day British Blues Phenomenon… Live at Brighton Road is a treat for the eyes and ears… the overall effect is breathtaking” Blues Blast Magazine, USA, 2017
“She releases a sort of diesel roar from her throat, pierced with little darts of high falsetto. It is like two voices. She sings the old twelve bar blues “I’m In The Mood”, whooping and slurring like an old boy from the Delta. The place goes mad, as if it can’t quite believe what it’s heard.”
