“Celeigh Cardinal is totally friggin’ metal. Her songwriting is both honest and sublime; it hits me in the head AND the heart. And just wait till she starts to sing. You’ll wake up in the middle of the night with a cold sweat, jonesing to hear that voice just one more time. Oh yeah, and she’s kind and hilarious to boot... Gross. ”
— David Landreth (The Bros. Landreth)
