“Emily Grogan, who may well turn out to be the next big thing out of Boston’s music scene…The singer/guitarist is a Botticelli beauty in a pink dress, with a sweet smile and self-effacing social manner, but anyone expecting a set of wan singer-songwriter introspections about boyfriends and rainy days is in for a bracing surprise.”
- Robyn Vaughn, The Boston Herald

“…well-structured songs with great guitar hooks, catchy lyrics…Much of her strength is harnessed in her distinct and powerful set of pipes, simultaneously aggressive enough to take a bite out of your arm, and the next moment, to be as soothing as a hospital nurse.”
- Keith “Rev.” Harris, The Northeast Performer

“…As a songwriter, Grogan's work is a mix of right-brain creativity and left-brain precision…”
- David Wildman, Boston Globe
