"Mondi’s deep and soulful voice moves the songs on from their traditional form, and unusual arrangements with a fantastic backing band captivating the crowd... A highlight is the title track Devil’s Door with its swing rhythm, fantastic horn section and brilliant backing singers supplementing Mondi’s smooth vocals... Break My Heart would not sound out of place during Mardi Gras in New Orleans." 


Ralph Blackburn, Hackney Gazette

"Devil’s Door has a meandering jazz groove and a soulful heart and the pop approach brings an accessible, not to mention commercial, vibe to the proceedings. Throw in some classic 60’s girl group harmonies and Francesca’s own sensuous tones and you have the perfect meeting of musical minds."
