"Elizabeth Devlin is a creative young singer from Queens, with a voice at once strong and ethereal. She accompanies herself on Autoharp, which casts her every song in shades of spooky." -MUSIC: Critics' Picks, TimeOUT NY, Dec. 4-10, 2008 ISSUE 688

Papa Devlin fancied himself a gypsy and traveled the coast peddling his one-man-band street performance; Mother Devlin was a writer, who tended many children & hand sew puppets to sell on the DC streets...pulling these things to her, Elizabeth Devlin combines bitter-sweet, haunting vocals, with poignant lyrical poetry and angelic, cacophonous Autoharp melodies.

"Then think about Elizabeth Devlin, who sings as though her influences are not of this Earth, and who, a scant three years ago, compelled audiences to listen intently through hour-long shows at Sidewalk Cafe NYC, her lilting vibrato accompanied only by the hand-claps she could chide out of the audience. In less-capable hands, an hour of solo a capella songs would be interminable, but Devlin soldiered on and kept audiences interested for a few months, before picking up an Autoharp, and not so much learning it, so much as having the instrument in her bones. This, All Are Relative, is Devlin's debut full-length...it is a testament to her ability as a songwriter, singer and monumentally gifted performer." -JezebelMusic.com, Record Review: All Are Relative, By:Brook Pridemore Dec. 12, 2008
