  4 out of 5 stars Rolling Stone Magazine
‚Äú‚Ķeven when she‚Äôs on the floor of ‚Äėthe bathroom of regret‚Äô, Ziller offers a poeticism that lifts the album into the realms of soulful refection‚Ķ‚ÄĚ ‚ÄstJessie Cunniffe (Rolling Stone)

‚ÄúShe possesses an emotive tone that can soar like a country diva, holler like a blues singer and serenade with the sweetness of a soul temptress, making Queen of Boomtown a world class Americana debut.‚ÄĚ ‚ÄstChris Familton (Rhythms)
