Reviews:
“She has a soaring, angelic voice that does Joni Mitchell justice. I almost forgot where I was!” – Lauren Lucille “An awe inspiring tribute.” – Joy Yates, TheMusic.com.au

“Really, of all the covers of Joni, no one does Joni better than Joni. Until now… In one of the most successful “tribute” performances I have ever seen, Australian-born singer-songwriter, actress and writer Rainee Blake is offering a recreated 1976 concert — including joyous monologues and introspections in Joni’s iconic Canadian accent and mannerisms… Do not miss this stunning achievement.” Tony Frankel, StageandCinema.com

“As the iconic Joni Mitchell, Rainee Blake’s performance succeeds in transforming the stage into a time machine. A perfect homage in every way, earning a Platinum Medal.” Ernest Kearney, TheTVolution.com
