"Letitia VanSant's honey-kissed voice embodies a rare earnestness and empathy. But behind the pleasantness is a protest singer with a keen power of observation. The beauty in VanSant's music and persona wins over the most hardened of hearts."
Erik Deatherage, Prairie Public Broadcasting
"...a brilliant female artist with a bright future, a catalog of new songs to relish, one for nearly any mood in which I might find myself. VanSant’s raw talent is undeniable and, paired with her master songwriting skills, allows VanSant to hone in on many of a wide range of emotions with remarkable musical precision."

“VanSant’s voice is the most striking aspect of the record. It is part Iris DeMent with a little Dolly Parton (and maybe even some Rose Maddox) thrown in. But after repeated listens, the quality of her songwriting begins to come out. She’s a clever woman with a lot to say. She claims that much of her music is motivated by a cross-country bike ride she took as well as her Quaker beliefs, but you don’t have to be a biking Quaker catch the drift. And she doesn’t try to write like she’s living in Tennessee in 1933 either. The outstanding opener, “Macy’s Parking Lot,” makes the eponymous landscape sound as high and lonesome as the riverbank of any murder ballad.”
