“lush pop, layered vocals, rich horn parts and a certain velvety darkness” — Alli Marshall, Mountain Xpress
“Starfruit… brims with lush, sophisticated pop, hip-hop and jazzy atmospherics” — Hector Saldaña, Express-News MySan Antonio.com
Imaginative, innovative songs married to musical arrangements that are as much jazz-based as rock or pop are something that Stephaniesid does unlike most other groups out there these days. It’s something that sets them apart in a world of copy-cat music and makes them interesting and intriguing.” — Bill Kramer, Staunton News Leader
“Their recent appearance in WNCW’s Studio-B debuted some of the danceable delights from ‘Starfruit’ and shows Stephaniesid is a forward moving force in music today.” — Dennis Jones, WNCW
“It’s an incredible album that gets better with each listen… support your ears and your brain’s request for incredible sonic input (what the brain calls “music food”). What we’re saying is that it’s fu**ing amazing. This is our favorite album we’ve heard all year, hands down.” — Tom Scheve, Asheville Disclaimer
