Vice Broadly: When Riot Girls Meet Goddess Warriors

"She has a voice that carries echoes of every respectable eccentric female singer going -Georgia Anne Muldrow, Kate Bush, Lou Rhodes, Chrissie Hynde, and Bjork.The juxtaposition of her soulful voice makes her stand out as an artist."
Will Georgi - OkayPlayer.com

"Honeychild Coleman - Halo Inside "
She's already the hardest working woman in show business, but then she turned around and made this pop-rock gem. "
Earl Douglas, Contributor & Executive Director of The Black Rock Coalition - Boldaslove.us

"From middle-of-the-road alternative “Friend", hip-hop influenced “Headlock” and Massive Attack-y ambience “Callus,” the album’s cohesion is the gumbo of her adopted Brooklyn. Fans of Georgia Anne Muldrow, Res, Bjork..would be well served"
Damien McPherson - LEO Weekly

"Forensic dissections of the human heart so raw and acute she immediately sets herself apart from the shoegazer-singer-songwriter pretenders.Embodying the dark confessional spirit of The Cure, twisted beauty of Kate Bush, emotional honesty of Roberta Flack,and snake-like sexual funk of Sade.(A+)"

"Honeychild Coleman-guitarist and vocalist evokes for me an early Liz Phair.Though her lyrics on "Halo Inside (Come la Luna 2008) are far from Phair's risque "Exile in Guyville," Coleman's flat vocals with carefully pitched highs are at once
charming, catchy, and smart."
Jen Williams, Top Ten of Sistas Who Rocked The Decade (In No Particular Order) - BoldAsLove.us

“What makes this an indispensable, essential purchase is the enigmatic vocals on four of the tracks by the under-recorded, underrated Honeychild. Honeychild unquestionably deserves her own album..there is a psychedelic loneliness and
melancholy in the vocals. This is eerie dubwise at its best.”
Professor Barnabus - Reggae Vibes

"Thrash diva Honeychild brings to mind Miriam Makeba meeting Bjork in the Sex Pistol's basement."
Greg Tate - VIBE

"Evoking images of Kate Bush and Sarah Vaughn battling it out in a mosh pit."
Teresa Wiltz - Washington Post
