"Vinnick's range of professional activity is more than matched by the vocal range found on Live At Bluesville where she teases out meaning from lyrics using a repertoire of a half dozen or so voices. On Willie Dixon's 'You'll Be Mine' her vampy vocal you're so sweet morphs effortlessly into a full Joni Mitchell keening as the melody's notes range higher. A little later a newfound gut-level urgency to the day that I die, she's singing becomes deceptively cosy and devilishly cutesy as she insists, you'll be mine in a way that makes you want make sure your wallet is where you left it...."
- Peter Goddard, Toronto Star
