“Striho writes gorgeous psychedelic pop songs that come from the silver edge of midnight.” — All Music Guide
“Carolyn Striho is the personification of Detroit Rock energy, charisma, beauty and talent. On stage, she is a force of nature, but this collection of her poems and lyrics allows us to experience this dynamic artist in a more intimate and personal way. Carolyn Striho is long overdue for a book just like this!” — Ann Delisi, Host, Essential Music, WDET-FM
“Warm and intoxicating, here’s a singer who means it! Striho needn’t have bothered naming her new album Honesty. It should be apparent to anyone who listens to the lovingly constructed record there’s barely a note played or sung that Striho doesn’t mean.” — Brett Callwood, Detroit Metro Times
