Alex Vissia Introduces Audience to Original Folk Pop - Richard Amery, L.A. Beat - November 16, 2011
"[Alex] reminded me a lot of Serena Ryder with her beautifully warbling voice. She showed some superb vocal range and played some catchy guitar as her band kept step behind her. They took five for a spell as she donned an acoustic guitar and showed she could carry things on her own."

LIVE! Alex Vissia at The Artery (Pics & Tour Dates) - Michael Senchuk, www.NewMusicMichael.com - November 11, 2011
"I love [Alex's] attitude, by the way. She’s got this sweet, soulful voice, she’s an amazing songwriter… folk rock I suppose you’d call her (she didn’t even touch an acoustic in the first set), but yet it seems like there’s a ‘rocker chick’ inside her somewhere, maybe just a swig of whiskey away. I absolutely loved her music, and am definitely psyched to listen to the album in the coming days."
