"The Staveley Project; a fierce, heartfelt and technically superb performance. Staveley's incomparably expressive vocal work is backed by one of the tightest and passionate rhythm sections I have heard. Her songwriting is raw like road rash and hits you just as hard.

"We came here for a night of Power-Pop...and the stavelEy project delivered!"
- A Very Intoxicated Man at The Silver Dollar Room, Toronto, ON, Jan 30/09

"I don't know what they are putting in the drinking water in Peterborough. There are roughly 75-100,000 people there, but they seem to have more than their share of talented musicians. Enough that Radio Free Peterborough gets by playing only Peterborough artists.
"If the name Jill Staveley doesn't mean anything to you (it will soon just wait) then think the Burning Hell. As I've said, I know that Mathias Kom is the Burning Hell even when he's alone, but I've never seen him that way and can't imagine him without Staveley backing him up...."
