"She has an unassuming demeanor; yet, her unique vocals are soothing and explosive. Her powerful, captivating voice exudes emotion that draws you into her space." Leonard Hughes, Washington Post
"Just when you thought the days of the great jazz standards were gone, along comes Cres O'Neal. One of the greatest assets to Cres' vocals is her versatility -- she easily moves from one genre to another, from classical to rock. Cres has a sound that most assuredly can be compared to that of Ella Fitzgerald and Sarah Vaughn." Steve Getz, Son of Stan Getz Son of Stan Getz
