Shari is a world class vocalist with a voice like no other and as far as I'm concerned, other artists should be compared to her, not that other way around. I haven't found this much soul in a white chick since....well, ever!"”

Shari melds Susan Tedeschi self-taught soul, Bonnie Raitt's country-rock sweetness and just a touch of Melissa Ethridge rasp.”

— Adam Joseph- Monterey County Weekly

If you've been here before, you should have no doubt that Ms. Puorto is a fabulous singer. I've said it before, and I'll say it again, she's right up there with Bonnie Brameltt in my pantheon of soulful blues singers, and I don't give higher praise than that...”
