What others say --
- People Magazine
"With a voice like hers, pyrotechnics are redundant."
- Denver Post
"...Soulful sparkplug Nina Storey might well be called LA NIÑA …can stir up a storm when she belts out her self-penned
soul-funk tunes. She's starting to build an out-of-state audience and her album, "Shades" (on Colorado label Red Lady Records), shows she has what it takes to become a national story."
- Performing Songwriter
"Formal training and theory aside, songwriting is at heart a mysterious process that's probably driven by as many different creative impulses as there are composers. In the case of Nina Storey, the desire to write songs was a natural outgrowth of her extraordinary gifts as a vocalist."
- Santa Cruz Sentinel
"With a voice of fire and quicksilver, Nina Storey is preparing to announce her arrival."
- Monterey County Herald
"The last time she played on the West Coast I described her as 'packing gale-force winds,' now I have to upgrade that storm warning to a level-t hurricane. She puts so much energy, verve and soul into her shows that she can barely whisper when greeting well-wishers after a performance …if there's any justice in the world, she should become a huge star."
