”...a range encompassing everything from jazz to neo-soul, Femi says she's simply listening to her own inner voice. She'd prefer to “let the music categorize itself,” Adding that ”as a creative person, you want to experiment with different forms.” --Eric Arnold, East Bay Express (Oct 12, 0005)

Her stylistic versatility extends to her music, a blend of soul, funk, jazz, salsa, house, hip- hop and reggae that she's dubbed “neo-funk.” --Eric Arnold, East Bay Express (Dec 06, 0006)
