"Christina LaRocca's These Are My Whiskey Dreams is a vocal tour de force for an artist with only her third two full length album and two EPs. The evolving songstress is restless, relatively genre agnostic, and courageous enough to vary her palette confident that her strong, soulful vocal pipes will carry her through." - Jim Hynes, Glide Magazine
