"Armed with a big sound and a smoky timbre, Jessi Teich has learned the subtlety and refinement that many gifted with big sounds never learn. She can lull you to sleep or blow you away; or wrap you up in a sound so sensuous that the walls start to waver."
- Wildy Haskell, Wildy's World
"You hear a bit of Ella Fitzgerald, and a smattering of Etta James. Jessi Teich possesses the attitude of Amy Winehouse, but without the baggage. There’s the dark mystery of Sade, but with more swing. You’ll even detect a whisper of Alicia Keys’ next-gen modernity."
- Nick DeRiso, Something Else!
“Jessi Teich came to the stage first with a five piece band featuring both a trombone and a saxophone. Y’all know I gave her a vote of confidence immediately upon that sight. But what I did not expect was for the petite white girl to come the stage and grab the mic and wreck it. And I don’t mean ‘wreck it’ by doing a bunch of riffing and running and screamin’ and hollerin’ like we’ve come to expect due to the image the mainstream industry pumps down our throats via some other white girls out there doing soul music. But what she gave her listeners that night was a sense of vocal honesty that’s extremely rare. No pretenses, no unnecessary vocal acrobatics, just a woman who sang her heart out. When she did riff it was always perfectly placed and never overboard which made it easy to listen to.”
