Musically, she reminds me a little of Jennifer Trynin, but bluesier and definitely a better singer. (email@example.com)
Writes her own stuff
I've completely flipped over Between the 1 and the 9 by Patti Rothberg. Listening to her sing turns me into a big molten pile o'goo. She has a really lovely, sweet, pure voice. Musically, she reminds me a little of Jennifer Trynin, but a little bluesier & she's definitely a better singer. She doesn't bat .1000 on the songwriting, but there are still several excellent tracks, and the album shows tremendous potential in my opinion. If you like things on the slightly poppier edge of the ecto spectrum (Elastica, Aimee Mann, Liz Phair, etc.), by all means, check it out. (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Comments about live performance:
She put on a very entertaining, varied, rocking show. The music sounded a bit derivative, but catchy anyway. I kept picking out odd influences that don't necessarily sound appealing, but were fun anyway (like Aerosmith, and Johnny Thunders). (neal)
Recommended first album:
Fairly wide availability

I like her a lot, but I don't hear much similarity to Jewel, she doesn't compare in range or depth. But if you like "Inside", you'll probably like the rest of the CD. She does good pop, the songs are melodic and catchy. She has a unique quality to her voice that sometimes doesn't wear very well for me by the end of the CD, but it still has a spot on my "current favorites" shelf. (email@example.com)
Contributed a neat cover of "Kung Fu Fighting" to the Surf Ninjas soundtrack.
