  4 out of 5 stars Rolling Stone Magazine
“…even when she’s on the floor of ‘the bathroom of regret’, Ziller offers a poeticism that lifts the album into the realms of soulful refection…” – Jessie Cunniffe (Rolling Stone)

She 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.” – Chris Familton (Rhythms)
