“Clean, elegant, tasty playing!!! I watched 3 times!!! Shred on!!!!!” ... Nita Strauss, Alice Cooper’s guitarist
“Lecia loves her 70’s rock, and it shows. But rather than rehashing old sounds and mimicking her heroes, the singer breathes new life into the sound and produces great, hooky rock songs.” ...Time Off, July 2007
“How freakin’ awesome. You rock lady!”, Bilko, Zinc 96 FM, 2015
