— WFMT 98.7 Chicago - The Midnight Special

Be Brave, the latest release by ace songwriters Catherine Miles and Jay Mafale, is an all-around homerun! Excellent writing, over-the-top vocal performances & musicianship, complex arrangements, with every track a listening pleasure. Diverse tempos, melodies and subject matter, this record is top-notch start to finish, and I highly recommend giving it a listen, preferably with head phones! Two thumbs up for this stellar release!” - Tom Tranchilla
