  Country for Lovers cover

"Sultry-voiced nightclub ingenue Eleni Mandell has a thrilling-chilling way with a busted romance ballad, but country & western? That seems like a stretch, right? Evidently not. A preview spin of her forthcoming Country For True Lovers album reveals that Mandell's turn as a honky-tonk hussy is a smouldering success, thanks in part to the tastefully understated accompaniment of country ringers Tony Gilkyson, Kip Boardman, Don Heffington and pedal steel master Greg Leisz, who create a brilliant Bakersfield after-hours vibe...fans of Jean Shepard and bourbon for breakfast will be well pleased."

Snakebite cover

"Less is more they say and this L.A. singer-songwriter does a lot more with less in her third collection...Against stark acoustic backdrops accentuate the raw emotion her voice tranforms from raspy-sweet to sexually hysterical to fervidly scornful, painting rare portraits of mysterious and desperate lives."

Thrill cover

"Long time losers, perennial near misses, angry men and vengeful women - they're all here. It's meaty stuff, but what really catches your ear is Eleni Mandell's voice. Or voices, she has several. And each has the depth to match the range...part cabaret, part blues mama and all good. Very, very good actually."
