"It's been over 10 years since I've seen someone as naturally talented as Taylor Tote."

- David Ivory

Grammy nominated multiplatinum engineer and producer

“Tote’s career has been on a steady ascent for the better part of the last decade and she has matured into a genuine star.”

- Chris Spiewak

"“She is dominating, empowering, strong, soft, sexy, and insanely fun.  Her attitude and stage presence is smooth, sweet, and controlled. However, it can be flipped like a switch to a rock and roll, hell-stomping diva. Her range is one of a rock ‘n’ roll vixen that will send your music senses on the ride of your life."

- The Aquarian Weekly
