Philadelphia City Paper -- full article
"Strummy guitars with Latin accents blend and bend with a plucky mandolin and a swooning violin. It's the perfect platform for Jokisch's stormy vocals and socially conscious lyrics."

Creative Loafing
"A trio led by a female vocalist with a serene sensibility. There’s country, folk and just a hint of bluegrass, and the songs are akin to a mellow country drive on a cloudy day.”
"A three-piece original troupe of rootsy multi-instrumentalists who played quiet yet intense music ... a mix of tasteful folk with pop sensibilities and some bluesy, almost jazzy influences."

The Phoenix, Swarthmore College
"The fluidity of the lyrics and the ease with which they matched the music impressed me, mostly because the lyrics are particularly well-written. (The performance) was excellent and provided unwavering quality entertainment, both musical and comedic."

Album Reviews - take what you will

David Enna, Senior Producer, (Charlotte Observer)
"Honestly, this is the best CD I have heard, of any type, in at least a year. Just lovely. And I personally loved the minimal production, pure and simple."

Jamie Chvotkin,
"Add this album to add to your collection! NOW! This is a record that will take you out of your stressful environment and put you in a relaxed, carefree world."

Seth Kallen, Musician
"This CD is a must-have! The songs are well-crafted and executed with a sweet and touching elegance. The arrangements of the violin, mandolin and acoustic guitar beautifully accompany Vale Jokisch's soft and heart-warming vocals."

Live Performance

David Enna, Senior Producer, (Charlotte Observer)
"You have a unique sound, and your songwriting is superb. Seeing you live, I realized how complex your songs are, building in waves to an emotional release. And your stage presence is perfect (three nerds who make no apologies). I could tell how much you were grabbing the audience."

Cammie Collier, Owner, Sawbriar Acoustic Stage, Pilot Mountain, NC
"What ellipsis shares on stage is fine art: creative, and one of a kind. With Vale's sensual vocals and the magical harmonies and melodies of Matt and Joel, they tap into the beauty in the emotions that connect us all. We look forward to their return to our stage."

Skip Hicks, Owner, MJ's Coffeehouse, Annville, PA
"ellipsis is one of MJ's most popular bookings. What a responsible, cooperative, friendly group of young, gifted musicians! This very talented musical trio, in a very short time, has developed a local core of fans in the Central PA area. Beyond music, ellipsis demonstrates a most entertaining stage presence. We eagerly await their next appearance."
