“Rising star” – Brian Ferguson, The Scotsman

“Iona’s voice displays incredible confidence and maturity… Even without accompaniment, Iona’s voice is as finely tuned, precise and eminently enjoyable an instrument as you’ll find… Utterly haunting.”   – Folk Radio UK 

“A testament to the strength, endurance and adaptability of the tradition.”  FolkWords

“When it comes to folk music, she has one of the most stunning voices on the circuit today.” – Artree

“Most very excellent”  – Mike Harding

“Vocalist and pianist Iona has graced many stages across her native Scotland and in Europe with her portfolio of haunting ballads and upbeat modern fare. Here her debut CD just sweeps from the speakers.” – The Musician, The Musicians Union

“An indication of the strength of what lies in the Scots tradition. One also which represents a record of the fledgling flight of an artist whose own story could run and run.” – Bright Young Folk
