"Ferdinand's Ball Packs the Muhammad Ali Center"

“Musical entertainment was provided by Louisville’s own Southern Sirens, who played a mix of classic hits and folk numbers. They were excellent, and helped lend a great atmosphere to the event.” -

"Southern Sirens to Play Ferdinand's Ball"

“Think Spice Girls with folk and bluegrass, Dixie Chicks without the controversy... Southern Sophistication” - WHAS 11 Great Day Live

"Ferdinand's Ball to Benefit Old Friends Equine Retirement"

“Featured vocal entertainment will be provided by the all-female folk trio Southern Sirens. I admit having so many distaffers prominent at the event warmed my heart. Over 600 guests are expected at this year's Ferdinand's Ball. It just keeps getting better.” - MaryAnn Myers

"Southern Sirens, The Belles of Southern In"

“Get this: A self-described "folk-Americana-backwoods" all-female group -- think violin, guitar, organic percussion and meaty vocals -- covering Bonnie Tyler's disco romp "I Need a Hero" and killing it... Southern Sirens band sure to mesmerize listeners.”
— Elizabeth Beilman & Jason Thomas, So In News and Tribune - So In New and Tribune

"Southern Sirens to perform with Carlene Carter and Bruno Mars"

“Local group, Southern Sirens, has been making quite a name for themselves. With a multi-state fall tour coming up in October and two big shows on the horizon, these ladies should be on your watch list.” - Jenna Foster
