"Rolling Hills Radio New Season"

"I was in Rochester and went to an open mic to check out acts," said Hardley. "Just before leaving Suzi came on and was bigger than life, so we had to stay to see what it was about. She hopped up on stage and captivated the room, so we booked her and her husband Don immediately. They just released a new CD, and it's first rate." - The Post Journal

"CD Review"

“I don’t have enough fingers to count how many bands have said to me over the years, “Oh, we play everything.” No, they don’t. Rochester’s Anonymous Willpower does, however. On its new EP, “No One Will Ever Know” the band is all over the map without being the least bit scattered. The compositions are fresh and dynamic. Anonymous comes from outta nowhere on “Love Is Crazy.” The cut “Angel in Control” kicks off with a good, bad, and ugly nod to famous film composer Ennio Morricone and boy, that’s cool. And when Anonymous Willpower digs into a cover, The Sweet’s “The Ballroom Blitz,” they turn it upside down and inside out during the verses but leave the refrain intact. Whoa, mama. At times, the music can be intensely exuberant, but Anonymous Willpower saddles up and rides capably and cocksure.

"Blog Review"

"The band slams down hard, a mysterious, stone faced man in a top hat on piano bench tickles some lines that fall somewhere between Professor Longhair and Ben Folds... With an explosively charismatic and life affirming delivery reminiscent of soul-powered heavyweights like Etta James, Janis Joplin, and Sharon Jones, Suzi Willpower wants you to get down, but she's also 100% serious in her mission to bring us a message from the furthest reaches of the galaxy." -Saby Davis, Jr. -

"White, Hot and Blue"

"...Don Anonymous (keyboards/top hat) - lays down a funky, irresistible r&b shag that'll rock your ass. But it's singer Suzie Willpower, that fine female found at the band's front end, that's a solid sender. She's a powder keg of pulchritude that sure doesn't sound blonde and white. Uhn!"

"Rochester Arts Blog"

“Anonymous Willpower has emerged as one of the most interesting bands on the scene. "It is at heart a soul band, especially early '70's," Anonymous says. But, he concedes, the band is quite a bit else as well: a knowledgeable yet natural cocktail of soul, jazz, funk, and blues, delivered with the punk and Goth of some of Willpower's past bands.” - Democrat and Chronicle
