“Meow Meow grabs the audience like a fistful of putty and moulds us into whatever she wants. We are her playthings and she is our mistress.”

Kate Herbert

Herald Sun

“There are not many women who can stun an audience into pin-drop silence with an exquisitely delivered torch song one moment and rock the rafters with laughter the next. Meow Meow… is that rare combination – devilish funny bones and heavenly vocal chords.”

“Meow Meow has a spectacular, smoky voice that wraps its way sinuously around cabaret standards such as Jacques Brel’s “Ne Me Quitte Pas” (If You Go Away) (sung in multiple languages, including a “Vegas version”). When she knocks off the silliness and camp to simply sing, it’s shockingly effective.”
