"her biggest asset, her voice, which has echoes of Dolly Parton and Kasey Chambers and even occasionally the cracked regret of Tim Hardin, is utterly convincing... her melodies are to die for and she looks set to be one of the major names on the Americana scene." - Americana UK

"a gorgeous country vocal and strong melodies with a healthy dose of pedal steel to complete the package...Whitney is firmly in the "one to watch" category" #5 on the Best of 2010 EPs -

“Madison alt-country songstress Whitney Mann has established herself as a smart songwriter with a crystalline voice on 2009's splendid The Way Back Home EP” - The Onion (AV Club – Madison)

“Mann's emotionally rich soprano sound[s] so doggone sweet amid all the sadness and resignation of which she sings.” – Sheppard Express

"A lot has already been written about Whitney Mann and her stellar debut recording, The Way Back Home. It’s been a while since a musician caused such a ruckus and Mann is surely in a position to walk away with the MAMAs’ New Artist of the Year Award." -

"The Way Back Home shines with soul and sass, reminiscent of Jenny Lewis and Kasey Chambers. Mann drapes her bittersweet lyrics with sticky tenderness and wails like a woman scorned but proud. Her singing is wonderfully expressive, sometimes smoky and sometimes high-strung and bent with bluesy insistence." - Wisconsin State Journal

"I consider her one of Madison's must-see artists" … “Madison’s finest country crooner” -
