“Helen McCookerybook’s lyrics, frank and idiosyncratic, find poetry in the everyday- shards of broken glass in the ice cream.” – David Sheppard, Art & Music: the Saatchi Magazine

“… acoustically led, her songs are of love, politics and quite possibly, the kitchen sink, and her voice is pure as crystal.” – Paul Scott-Bates, Louder Than War

“’The Sea’ by Helen McCookerybook is gentle but scathing, quiet but raging, fierce but melodic.” – Cazz Blaise
