Something of an enigma
Sam Stallard, NME
A pleasing, teasing, law unto herself.
Jim Arundel, Mojo
An ambiguous, heady brew of power, politics, pleasure and personality all rolled into one. Redbrick Magazine
University of Birmingham
An extraordinarily gifted singer-songwriter - possessed of an exquisitely wayward, multi-octave voice.
Paul Lester, Melody Maker
Pretty much incredible, a twinkly, twinkly star
Caitlin Moran, The Times
Rachel Mayfield has wit and nerve
Time Out London
Rachel Mayfield is one of the most important women in contemporary music. She is a bruised yet strangely sensuous woman.
A Goddess of Indie Rock - NME
Pleasure with brains
Rachel Mayfield is a true artist and a master of dynamics. With 'Winter of Desire' she has produced an album destined to be the vital soundtrack for anyone who has ever experienced epic love and loss.
Antonia Woodward, Gig Junkies
Mayfield's voice is to sigh for, full of pure, unforced beauty. Whats On
Capable of soul-baring, sensuous ferocity.
Anyone who has not experienced the fragile beauty of Rachel Mayfield's aural aura needs to make it their priority. The lyrics, personal and allegorical, tell the story of an artist who hasn't chosen art; art has chosen her. Lucky us.
Andy Strachan, Rate Your Music
Emphatic, balanced, artistry. Nicholas Manthorpe - Evening News
Rachel Mayfield opens her mouth and this voice unleashes itself in all its just controlled, terrifying beauty.
Sara Manning, NME
The lady has everything; a totally individual sound and personality, with a magnetic, transfixing presence. She dominates centre stage like the innocent but knowing eye of a technicolour hurricane.
Mayfield's voice is infused with an unmistakable and exhilarating passion which sends a shiver down the spine - It's quite difficult to be cynical about Rachel Mayfield - she oozes sincerity from every pore. She clearly has an immense amount of faith in what she's doing, and it's impossible not to be carried along by it all.
Making Waves, Oxford
Caren Myers, Melody maker
A gorgeous, poison honey, soaring voice.
Mike Davies, Brum Beat
Rachel Mayfield's voice is swooping, demanding, pleading but always seductive.
Cornwall College Student Magazine
Raw energy and well-balanced sensitivity.
Leon Burakowski, Dudley chronicle
With an inherent ability to be both vulnerable and untouchable, operating outside of the traditional verse/chorus constraints of boy rock formulas, exploring musical structures and exploding anachronistic girl myths surrounding sexuality in a frank and fearless way, she is as exciting, unpredictable and dangerous as a ten-legged Tyrannosaurus.
Sam Steele, NME
Rachel Mayfield's voice is full of wistful longing and wild abandonment with lyrics that make me want to shout out loud wherever I am.
Mark Baker, Pi, ULU, Union Magazine
Albums of warmth, power and feeling.
The official paper of UMIST Students Union
She is everywhere by Rachel Mayfield
