"Hunter's strengths lie in a vocal tone that she varies to suit the mood of the song while always sounding like the real deal and her ability to project a genuine empathy with the characters she’s singing about." Rob Adams, The Herald Scotland

"It's a beguiling tapestry of sound which leaves you wanting more." Matthew Linley
