"Zombie Lover represents a diverse array of songs with different genre-defying tunes that incorporate a number of instruments, arrangements, and sounds for an interesting listen. All of the songs are worthy of airplay, despite a somewhat incongruent mix of genres and sounds. Solveig & Stevie find a way to make it all work without sacrificing melody, rhythm, and quality. This is a top recording for fans of Americana folk/rock or bands such as Evanescence, Cranberries, Nina Gordon, and Jace Everett."

Matthew Forss, Inside World Music

"Zombie Lover from Solveig and Stevie is a strong release. That strength comes from the different backgrounds from Solveig Whittle and Stevie Adamek and it is those backgrounds that help add plenty of variety to the duo’s music. The variety in Zombie Lover makes the release strong and entertaining from the first track, making it one of the best albums of 2013 so far."

Matheson Kamin, Matheson’s Entertainment Blog

"Solveig & Stevie’s Zombie Lover is quite an enjoyable record. With 7 wonderful tracks, this will make you crave more of what they have to offer in the years to come. Their debut proves to be successful and captivating as well. Here’s to a job well done!"
