A young composer and singer-songwriter with all the makings of a new British guitar heroine and a style that skips cheerfully across boundaries...impressive - **** -- Robin Denselow, The Guardian, February 4th 2011
Impossible to pigeonhole...that it works as a cohesive whole is down to Holmes's immense talent and joire de vivre, which emanates from everything she does - **** -- R2, March/April 2011

Full of warmth...an absolute delight -- The Observer
She's a world-class player
