«Killer axe woman, fab voice and oodles of stage presence […] If UK festival promoters do not grab this lady and her band for spring and summer dates very soon, call the cops as a crime will have been committed!»
Music Republic Magazine
«Tora’s set was a real eye opener […] an excellent guitarist, playing some blinding riffs and fingerpicking her way through some delicate solos. Backed up by her excellent band, it was a top night of high energy. Tora had the audience in the palm of her hand with a mixture of humour and raw talent […] if you get the chance to see her somewhere else I really encourage you to do so. You won’t regret it.”
