"Johnnie kicks her Bluegrass up a notch by creating sonic textures and atmospheres, resulting in songs that are felt as much as heard. You’ll dig it if you dig: Michelle Shocked rewriting the American Country Songbook with Daniel Lanois producing the session."
-Brian Baker, City Beat (Cincinnati OH)
"Johnnie Ninety-Nine was a toe-tapping splendour."
- Robin, Texting Mackenzie (Guelph ON)
"Johnnie Ninety-Nine's voice is one of those that catches you off guard. Her youthful, smiling, slightly awkward stage presence disappears the moment she starts singing, and is replaced by a maturity and confidence that makes you sit up and take notice. She has a timeless quality that is as rustic and "old-timey" as it is fresh, young, and contemporary. The kind of voice that connects up the present with a line that draws back into the distant and dim past. It's a voice that demands attention, and then rewards the effort." - Adam PW Smith Live Event Photography
"Very powerful... extraordinary." - Ali Amri, proprietor, Montmartre
Cafe, Vancouver BC
