- "The voice of lead singer, Danielle Minch, from the band Behind the Façade, thrashes against the bubblegum pop songs dominating music today. Minch brings forth an edgy, rock sound that can be described as “in your face,” from the moment one of her songs plays. The powerful songs of Behind the Façade sting you with their screaming melodies at one moment, and in the next lure you with their emotional lyrics." -WAXWIRE
