- "At its heart, "Underbelly" is an album that runs the gamut between country and Americana.... The result is a very cosmopolitan album, one that does a really good balancing act to ensure that it stays fresh along it's eleven track length. Judson herself appear to get a real sense of the world around her and turn the experiences into thought provoking, well thought out songs."
- Neil King Fatea Magazine, August 2012
"...reminiscent of Heather Nova... One can tell that Judson has a vast cultural knowledge, and it is present in her compositions."
-LaParadiddle Music Pile May 25 2012
..."a gravitational pull... simultaneously down to earth, yet ethereal sounds, emerge and blend in a shroud in which the audience is wrapped."

"I like your style whether intentionally or not, channeling Elliott Smith." - Sylvia Harris, Indie Country fm
"C'est doux comme une tartine de miel!"
- Benjamin Sertelon, 2 mars 2012
"Underbelly's songs serve as stories where a sequence of characters, male and female, fall, leap, love, lie, argue, explain and hope. Judson brings a sense of hope and humor to these stories."
- Rising Magazine, September issue, 2011
"Cette compositrice venue de Chicago, dont le nom est encore inconnu en France, a publié en ce début de saison un remarquable album de ballades folk. Ce disque, baptisé Underbelly, séduit par sa grâce et sa douceur."
- Pierre De Boishue, Le Figaro Magazine, 16 Mai 2011
"Hannah Judson's music is gorgeous and her vocals have a sturdy yet melancholy inflection that suits her well. "Human heart" has a lovely tune and a pensive lyric that she handles very well. "Cheater at hearts" is soft but carries a sting in its tail. Judson's gorgeous vocals carries the tune well. "All about love" is wise and sensitive, Judson's singing at its best. It's a stunning album." - The Ectophiles Guide review of "Underbelly," 15 Aug 2011
"Judson's vocals are dead on, thready when the music whispers by on spidery legs and strongly carrying the songs when it should.”
- South of Mainstream
“It's a real joy when tracks like this show up. Understated and elegant in every way, Hannah Judson and Kite Club are worthy heirs to bands like Cowboy Junkies and Innocence Mission". - Joe Taylor, Indie Music Club
"I loved your songs last night. I will listen to the poems or images in your songs again. So much to appreciate or get insight from. You have a beautiful voice, simple, full, real."
- message from fan after Les Déchargeurs show 10 juin 2011
"I have to admit I got a bit teary-eyed as I watched her performance. It's as if she understood me....and we haven't had a decent conversation yet...Alongside the lightness of her aura comes the lightness of her voice, like a feather tickling your emotions. And the lyrics...disguised as simple words but deep in meaning-messages that pierce through." - Maria Limjoco, Paris Talents a Vendre, 25 juin 2011
Un filet de voix
En chute libre.
Guitares, par trois,
Joie de vivre,
Comme au bowling."

“Une Américaine à Paris. Un folk rock. Ou l'inverse. Poétique et tendue, cette beauté blonde ne vous laissera pas de marbre!”
- Les inRocks Lab/cqfd 15 mars 2010
"Hannah Judson's expressive, versatile voice tugs irresistibly. The song will either float lightly high above, or pull you with the power of a stiff gale. I am absorbed by the simple, unexpected twists and turns of the music & lyrics. A direct connection to something beautiful & eternal."
