"Swift gets both dramatic and slyly witty, taking on sexism directly with her unrestrained makeover of 'How Lovely to Be a Woman’…” — Glide Magazine 

"It’s as good a job of reconciling the past and the present as I have ever heard, and goes a lot further than anything else I’ve encountered in the past 12 months toward making sense out of a world gone wacko.” — Wall Street Journal 

“Veronica Swift is a woman of many voices, and she uses every one of them to refract a dizzying kaleidoscope of moods on 'This Bitter Earth...'” — DownBeat 

"'This Bitter Earth' is more universally-minded as she tackles sexism, racism, domestic abuse and other social issues via carefully curated materials.” — Jazziz 

“...recontextualizing decades-old lyrics has led the Charlottesville-bred jazz vocalist to a point of historical confluence, one where classic songs now take on a renewed relevance.” — The Daily Progress 

“...it takes an artist of sure and rising stature to curate one hell of a coherent protest album.” — All About Jazz

“...a jazz lioness with a pure tone, large lungs, a knowing sense of repertoire, and sure swing style.” — JazzTimes
