"This handsome , dynamic artist reminds us somewhat of Judy Garland, Elaine Stritch and Marlene Dietrich all rolled into one." Liz Smith
"..Stevens greatest attribute is her ability to turn a song into a profoundly moving story." Bob Harrington, New York Post
"A singer of impeccable diction, Ms. Stevens deftly switches to Brooklynese to Cockney to upper class English accents to add a witty sociological dimension to her material. She has a special affinity for the lyrics of Cole Porter, exquisitely underscoring the brilliant rhymes, naughty sexual innuendo and snobbish wit.." Stephen Holden, New York Times
