“The Flutter & Wow’s self-titled EP (self-released) is a magnificently earthy slice of Americana-infused country music. The dual male / female vocals works perfectly here, partly because of the quality of the four songs but also because of the presence of Tasha Lord, a woman who could be about to take over Detroit.”—  Brett Callwood, Metro Times
 
This exotic and staggeringly beautiful woman has a fierce set of vocal chords that brought her to the stage when she was just a girl... Beauty, brains and bodacious stage presence is a deadly combination, indeed.” —  Travis R. Wright, Real Detroit Weekly
 
“Speaking of ear-catching, Tasha's vocal ability seems so effortless. It is something you have to see for yourself, but when she opens her mouth you would almost think she was lip syncing. She delivers a huge vocal presence… One thing is for sure- her voice has that one of a kind distinction of an Annie Lennox or Janis Joplin. She doesn't necessarily sound like either of these artists, but when you hear Annie or Janis, you know it's them. Same goes for Tasha.”
—  Jam Rag
 
“Tasha’s vocals are strong, ethereal, and womanly”
—  Lana Mini, Filter
