“Rony’s insomnia’s work is just absolutely beautiful… sublime even. These are some of the most gorgeous pieces of music I’ve had the pleasure of listening to. Acoustic, chilled out dreamy folk / rock ballads that will enrich your life. Rony, if you’re reading this, please come to England and play some shows.”  John Colson, Vents Magazine.
“Israeli-American Rony’s Insomnia is clearly a rocker and a raw talent.. Watching her run her beautiful Les Paul through a series of pedals was something you rarely see at Banjo Jim’s… knows her way around the fretboard and has real command of a surprisingly diverse number of styles.. understatedly intense… poignantly soulful, incisive, amazingly precise blues runs… Her originals put a harder-rocking spin on inventively jazz-tinged, late 70s Joni Mitchell styling, along with a big, crunchy, hypnotic rock anthem that she artfully assembled layering, singing and soloing…exploring a whole slew of styles..somebody worth keeping your eye on.”
