Look at some of the reviews from Hawkins Performance!
"Sophie B. Hawkins is remarkable as Janis Joplin in ‘ROOM 105: The Highs and Lows of Janis Joplin’. The band is exceptional too in this trip down memory lane. It is one of our FEATURED events!” - Performing Arts LIVE
"When Hawkins starts singing, she sings the shit out of those songs. And, even with Joplin’s unmistakably, distinctive voice, Hawkins’ heart colors each note and vocal gymnastic. She really outdoes herself here."
THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER says, "it seems like Grammy-nominated singer Sophie B. Hawkins was born to play Janis Joplin."
“Bringing renewed verve to her [Joplin's] legacy and spirit...brilliant and heartfelt performance by Sophie B. Hawkins... Perhaps even more impressive was the sensitivity with which Hawkins embodied Joplin. Impressively written and directed by Gigi Gaston” - EDGE MAGAZINE
"Sophie B. Hawkins has had one of the sweetest 'Janis Joplin-like' voices in music"
