" Every now and then a musician comes along with just the right combination - beauty, voice, lyrics, and soul blend effortlessly with hard work, dedication, and natural talent to produce a performer serious enough to grab you by the lapels, shake you around and let you drop, astonished but happy and eager for the next shot. Katie Haverly has all of these qualities and more in spades." -Joe Collier, Flagstaff Live, 1999.
"There are singers, and then there are singers - and Katie Haverly''s one of the latter, with one of those spectacularly effortless-sounding voices that reaches all over the scale and explores all manner of sound without ever coming across as forced or strident or technically perfect for technical perfection''s sake. You hear the human being when she sings, not the studio or room or microphone that makes her sound so good, as the warmth and intimacy of her voice sucks you into the place where melody is pure and singing is an expression of a soul unbound." - Metroland, 2003.
