"When people discover Heather Thornton they will give a quick nod to her obvious vocal gifts. However, when they see her LIVE (be it as a soloist, a duet or an ensemble), a new fan is born. She is beautiful and witty, warm and thought provoking and always great fun. I never tire of watching audiences get turned on by Heather Thornton."

- William Saunders (recording artist, producer, and president of Saunders Street Records, LLC)
