Dreamy, rootsy and passionate, the 5-song sampler Expecting to Fly is for long-time fans and neophytes alike.

"Hunter possesses a pure, unornamented voice right out of the 60s folk revival, but often sounds like a 90s indie rocker - more in the lineage of Exene Cervenka than Joan Baez. In her writing she tends toward oblique melodies over chords that could have come from Led Zeppelin III. Add her unique vocal phrasing and jazz-tinged arrangements reminiscent of Tim Buckley or Fred Neil, and Hunter's understated music is the stuff of folk-pop dreams."
- Derk Richardson, Express on Headlights and Other Constellations

"Low-key but upbeat, a heady cross between a back-porch pickin' n grinnin'session and a tightly knit excursion into a new folk revival...Finders, Keepers is, ahem, a keeper."
-Fred Mills, Magnet

"Hunter makes music that is both elegant and hypnotic, weaving tales of urban frustration and mixing word-play with wisdom...Sonya Hunter may be one of the best kept secrets in America."
-Hap Mansfield, Utne Reader on Peasant Pie

"Geography is a stunning collection of stripped-down passion."
Greg Cahill, Pacific Sun

"Sonya Hunter is a regular Ms. Songbird, her glass-smooth vocals frail but worldly-wise, ...on Favorite Short Stories, the personas of urban folk-diva and barnstool yarn-weaver are melded."
