"Her songs go so far beyond what I tend to expect from young singer/songwriters (a cliched take on the angst of young love/loss, etc.) Her work has a mastery and an emotional depth that is impressive, and her songs convey real emotion. I had tears listening to her album of stories" (Section36)
"Whitlock has established her own unique style and positioning as an artist who has found her own spot for creative expression with down-to-earth honesty. She is always in motion on expanding her catalogue of music and content, and is a unique and impactful songwriter" (Performers on the Go)
"Whitlock's emo influences shine on her raw take on the heart- broken singer/songwriter role" (BuffaBlog).
