“The continually arresting playing on Vilddjur makes the case for Risberg as an original voice. Technically impressive and emotionally  persuasive, Risberg is above all an exciting guitarist who dares to plot her own course. With Viddjur, Risberg is truly worthy of inclusion in any discussion about important contemporary jazz guitarists.” - Ian Patterson, All About Jazz 

“The bandleader brings an expressive life and tonal depth to the clean, dark-leaning sound of the mainstream jazz guitar tradition with  nimble fingers and an agile creative force in her solos. Compositionally, Risberg taps into various subgenres but defies strict allegiance to any one style. Odd meters and beguiling melodic fragments abound, and song structures can take unexpected twists. ….. Her guitar sound might be traditional, in jazz terms, but her approach is awash in contemporary concepts, both cerebral and heartbased.”  - Josef Woodard, Downbeat Magazine 

”One of Sweden’s most interesting jazz guitarists.”  – Johannes Cornell, Dagens Nyheter 
”Jazz guitarist Susanna Risberg’s new album (Vilddjur) is modern jazz at its best… Risberg’s technique is brilliant and she uses this ability for the advantage of the tunes instead of “showing off”. This is one the things that makes Susanna Risberg a great guitarist” – Lennart Götesson, Dala-Demokraten
