"If human auras were visible, Elkin would have had a blue buzz of electricity surrounding her body, and sparks would have been flying. If she hadn't been anchored to some veteran side men...her feet might have left the ground... If Elkin can come across with the kind of stage presence she showed Saturday night on a regular basis, she's going to achieve widespread acclaim....she is a serious songwriter and a gifted vocalist...Elkin is going places. Just wait and see."
Tom Ross Steamboat Pilot
"Very few people in this world can captivate an audience with just a voice and a guitar the way Carrie Elkin can."
Matthew Toledo Athens Musicians Network
"Live, Carrie Elkin displays one of the most powerful female voices in the area, and her charming, unaffected stage presence nicely offsets her vocal mix of husky alto underpinnings and piercing soprano overtones....This is definitely a star to watch...."
