Today, a mother (single) of two children and the same for which we have been enchanted, desiring a Blue Magnetic like that of Joni Mitchell or Jackson Brown’s Magritte, the Band’s old stuff or the elegant Raccoon of JJ Cale.

Seacoast Online - Chris Hislop:
"If you haven't heard Redgate, then take it from me - start listening now. She's unreal. If you can picture a singer/songwriter that's as much Melissa Etheridge (in the rockin' vocals sense) as she is J.J. Cale (in the rockin' writing sense), then you're beginning to understand..."
Wildy's World - Wildy Haskill:
