Kind words:

Ear To The Ground - "Reminds me of truly classic folkies like Dylan and Seeger. We don’t throw that around much, so when we do it the sound is deserving. Heifetz is the genuine article."

Impose Magazine -  "Blessed with a powerful, room-filling voice, Heifetz has been writing his own chapter into the folk lexicon."

The Southern Sounding - "There’s both a minimalist storytelling arch and a complex emotional grandeur filling every second of resonant sound and lyrical intuition that Heifetz offers."

Atwood Magazine - "A first-generation American, Heifetz straddles worlds of the past and the present with wide open eyes."
