"This young singer/songwriter writes beautiful lyrics that are poetic and swift with a packed punch. Her words dance in front of us from the cast of her sweet and heavenly divine voice like flames on candles through a gust of wind. Lisa gives her music life through this brilliant orchestration. Her music is a form of storytelling following a similar artistic technique used by Billy Joel throughout his body of work. Hearing stories in this controlled medium was an extraordinary aural experience that was like a cup of chicken noodle soup that soothed the soul. Lisa’s talents are equally matched by a superb auxiliary behind her to whisk us away."

Lisa Gentile shows she's got it. Backed by a great band, singer Lisa Gentile showed why one year ago she walked away with the Sammy for best country CD. On the very stage on which she accepted that Sammy, Gentile displayed that she's the proud owner of fine original songs that sound as great live as they do on CD. "Sweet on You" is as catchy a love ballad as most of the stuff on contemporary country radio these days. And live, Gentile's got plenty of it-factor. She charmed the fans who were crowding into the shade in front of the stage with an easy way. - Syracuse Post Standard

Lisa Gentile, country singer-songwriter, performs asoul-searing set during the Sammys’ day of musical acts. Local pop-country afficionado and winner of 2007’s Best Country award, performed a genuine, heartfelt set that featured the airy “Sweet On You,” a tune from her EP 3 (Padre Music). Gentile’s performance also included an impulsive rendition of her tune “Tell Him How You Like It,”a feminine call to arms that describes the methodology women should use to instruct their man in sexual matters.- Syracuse New Times

"A tuneful, toneful singer with a smile as big as her voice."
- The Eagle, Syracuse, NY

"She is one of those artists who is writing songs that say exactly what we would say, if only we all were poets and troubadours." -Rambles Cultural Arts Magazine

"The beautiful Lisa Gentile has come up with 3 songs that are decidedly crossover country, on the same trail that Shania blazed, with at least as lovely a voice. By the time you're through with that 2nd song, you'll seriously wonder why you've not heard of Lisa. Perhaps you have. You should. She's super - and luckily not just by voice. The recording of this single is crisp and professionally produced. " -Music Dish E- Journal

"Lisa has a strong classy voice with the songs to match. Just listen to "I'm Over You", "Crack Me Open" and "Here It Comes" for further proof of this womans appeal. With the current musical climate swinging more to the singer/songwriter I think that we should be hearing a great deal more from Lisa if this CD is anything to go by."-Poweplay Magazine

"She's a tender storyteller who weaves tales of life as a woman finding her path through the experience of what it means to live, love and be loved while being bold and feminine at the same time. Staying true to her moods and close to her roots, Lisa inspires quite effortlessly with a stunning voice that soars and takes you along for the ride." - Time Out, New York 

"The smooth flowing cowgirl in her will lasso your soul in rapture." 

"A great pop artist from New York who could very well give the likes of Tori Amos and Shania Twain a run for their money. Killer vocals and foot tapping arrangements that hook into you from the first listen." -Aor- 

"Becoming is chock-full of gems. As a singer, Lisa sneaks up and plants melodies in the listener's head, that stick in the brain hours after hearing them. As a songwriter, she's not afraid to flex her musical muscles and still maintain her femininity." -CNY Music and
