“Francesca is something that comes along once in your life if you are lucky, Passionate and intense, Francesca is spellbinding. She has star quality that can’t be denied…. the passion of Janis Joplin, The moves of Tina Turner, and the looks of a Melrose Vixen. She could make it in ANY median she chooses…As a singer she is awesome, but as a performer, she is a PHENOMENON!” – Bernard Baur - THE MUSIC CONNECTION MAGAZINE "Capasso may be on the track to stardom." Tim Haddock /SANTA CLARITA SIGNAL "Francesca is one of the most electrifying performers we've come across..... tiny in stature (5'2) but incredibly mighty of voice and energy....think Etta James/ Katie Webster/Ruth Brown style vocals augmented by some funky and ﬂat out sexy dance moves. " Josh Urbach UR/UNIVERSITY REPORTER "To call this music the blues would be an injustice, as the talent and material goes beyond a single category. Francescs's obviously bluesy, but crosses over and delivers dramatic pop. funk, and R & B music as well, and it's her out standing ability to encompass other genres that make her so compelling." Bernard Baur/THE MUSIC CONNECTION MAGAZINE
"(Francesca) Reminds some reviewers of 1970's Star Janis Joplin, with her passionate, hard - edged voice. But where Janis's edge was rather rough - hewn, Francesca's is a smooth ﬁne cut. Her original music has a great pop sensibility." Jim Fowler / LOS ANGELES TIMES
".......Capasso proves to be an extraordinary singer as she belts out some big solo blues." - Tom Provenzano/LA WEEKLY.
