There is always a hint of menace and reservoirs of force haunting the corners of Eliza Rickman’s voice, whatever register it occupies. Her presence on stage—whether she wears flowers in her hair, or stuffed birds; whether she plays a toy piano or a grand piano—is an enveloping, soft darkness, impossible to ignore.
“Eliza’s beautifully unusual voice, accompanied only by the unique tones of a toy piano, is mesmerizing … absolutely exquisite.” – Renee Trinca, President, Schoenhut Piano Company
“Rickman’s winning stage presence and intricately arranged material is a perfect match for her powerful voice… In the hands of a lesser musician, [the toy piano] would quickly become a tired gimmick. However, she knows how to use the toy to construct songs that are compelling and bear repeated listening.” — Bart Mendoza, North Park News
