"Singer Songwriter Charting Her Way to Hollywood & Beyond"

"...bits of indie charm and a chill, catchy vibe. Clearly r&b, the tune also nods to electro, Top 40 and quiet storm soul. While “Pretty” unfolds over just six songs, the EP represents a huge step forward for Claymore (jumping her career ahead in quick bursts is another recent motif for the singer/actor)...This new side of Claymore will be something we’ll hear more of — when she’s not auditioning for blockbusters or innovative series." -Jed Gottlieb - Boston Herald

"Destiny Claymore is Boston's Next Media Triple-Threat"

Destiny Claymore’s artistic journey is so varied that at some points, it starts to tangle. Where her music career begins, her film career crisscrosses — where that film career starts, a TV career pops up. (Some dance creds are woven into that equation, too)....single “No Fly Zone” perfects an icy kind of R&B. - Vanyaland

"Brockton native sees herself on the big screen in Ryan Reynolds film 'Free Guy'"

"If I could give my younger self advice, I would tell her 'Your weirdness is perfect and don't change it. Don't let anyone else tell you what to do with it.' I let people tell me what to do with my weirdness," McCottrell said.

But the rise to stardom did not come from overnight success as some may think.

McCottrell spent years after graduating high school in 2012 purely working on her art. - Brockton Enterprise

"This Brockton Performer is,truly, the girl with the HAIR"

"And with a big, bold voice and signature do like that, it was only natural that she starred in a recent production of the rock musical Hair, performing on stage in front of sold out crowds over the weekend at ONCE Somerville." - The Enterprise

"Urban Nutcracker Takes Contemporary Leap"

With impressive break dance moves and jangly isolations, Destiny McCottrell is a standout as a Michael Jackson doll. - Boston Globe
