"If you're searching for the best representative of traditional country and blues sounds in Guatemala, seek no more. Mercedes possesses a piercing, but at the same time subtle and elegant, voice, which recalls the greatest singers of pure and raw roots-blues. I have no doubt she has a brilliant career ahead of her."
-Gaby Moreno, Winner Latin Grammy Award for Best New Artist / Grammy-nominated artist 2017
"Mercedes Escobar is one of the finest singers it's been my pleasure to play with. In the tradition of the great singers; Ma Rainey, Bessie Smith, Koko Taylor, Ruth Brown, through her contemporaries, Mercedes 'tells it like it is.' Watch for her!"
-Tony Maimone, Studio G Brooklyn
