"Her music is soulful, and her sultry voice hypnotizing." (Muneeza Iqbal, The Villager)
"I've had the immense pleasure of sharing the stage with this amazing young lady, and I cannot properly put into words the impact her brief stay on stage has left in me. If you came to this page under false pretenses, know that you will leave more than content. Her lyrics flow like poetry and are full of literary ingenuity. Her voice is of seraphic quality, mellow, soulful, yet showing restraint, never going far enough as to sound self-aggrandizing. The real hook here is the songwriting. Xenia's pop sensibilities sound as though they've been fed a steady diet of Leonard Cohen and Neil Young, while the music is reminiscent of the latter's more folky material. Though Xenia has clear influences, she utilizes that knowledge while injecting it with her frighteningly acute sense of creativity and melody. This record is not to be ignored." (iTunes Review)
