WHAT CRITICS ARE SAYING

"Tower’s Natalie Merchant-meets-early-Madonna vocals"..."The trio of musicians that make up “The Seekers” is a tight group. Chris Wright is an impressive cellist. Stephen Perkins keeps the beat nicely. Tower plays guitar and has a very unique voice. I could tell that she has a much more powerful voice, but kept it at bay for this folk-rock release." – SC, Insite Magazine, Austin.TX, {excerpt}

"The trio of Havilah Tower (vocals, guitar, lyrics), Stephen Perkins (djembe drum) and Chris Wright (cello) indeed create an imaginative sound with the cello and djembe punctuating Tower's words. Tower has an expressive voice and the Perkins/Wright backing add a texture that's certainly unique." – Jim Beal, San Antonio Express-News, San Antonio, TX
