Laurel also interviewed Jesca Hoop & reviewed her show at LA's Music Box Theatre in October. She said:

Her banter was witty and biting, much like her vocal style. She is one of the few artists I've heard who have absolute control over all of the possible sounds their instrument can make. Jesca's voice is as finely tuned and honed as any proper instrument should be, and her ability to rasp and coo as well as she lilts and shouts colors each song more unique and brilliant than the last. I absolutely loved the dark cabaret number 'Money', during which Jesca put down her guitar and used both hands to help illustrate the song's lyrics.
