Written about Alicia
"När sångerskan Alicia Carlestam stiger på är ”vi kör” ett av få mellansnack som erbjuds under praktiskt taget hela konserten. Och kör, det gör de. Det är svårt att inte tänka Janis Joplin om den barfota sångerskan med de runda, rökfärgade glasögonen och den otroligt kraftfulla rösten. Att de sedan kör en cover på ”One good man” av densamma känns fullkomligt rätt och Carlestams röst ändrar karaktär mot det vibrerande, hesa som utgör Joplins signum." - PT
"En av många höjdpunkter under kvällen är ”They call me mr. Misfit” (Slidin’ Slim) som sjungs genom en munspelsmikrofon. Den distade, souliga rösten som övergår i ett avgrundsvrål borde kunna ge en sten gåshud. Det är kaxigt, det är svängigt och det är otroligt träffsäkert." - PT
"Den fantastiska sångaren och munspelaren Alicia Carlestam från Nyköping" - Alligator
"Alicia Carlestam sjunger kraftfullt i Irene Caras titelklassiker" - PT
"Just got this sent to me, great version and I love this girls voice.
Enjoy folks" - Paulo Mendonca on his official Facebook page about a concert video where Alicia Carlestam is performing with a cover version of his song "If you ever come back to me".
