"What's your Tribe? The one who speaks the words of longing you didn't even know existed inside you, or the one that scares the pants off you with the mirror that she holds up that reveals your dark potential. Just perfect..."(James Duckworth)
"Put your hand out, let Cassandra Tribe walk you though this journey. She will be your reflection on this trip to reality. "Angel," Tribe's new collection of poetry explores the human condition, from the painful ebb and flow of love to the uncertainty of living in a world where "Our poets are silent/Our singers drunk." Tribe, spoken word artist and philosopher, lends her audience a didactic and Humanistic view of the world, whether it is through her poetry, essays or her daily blog. One stand-out poem by Tribe, the epic-length "Monster," urges readers to face the harsh reality that comes with being irresponsible in life - the false gods and monsters created by blind acceptance." (Vagner Revol, Poet Tree Magazine)
"The book, "The Greedy Heart". contains all the pieces on the cd and twelve others, including the acerbic title piece. Yet it is her version of Ovid's morality tale, Baucis and Philemon, that takes center stage. Perhaps one of the best contemporary versions ever written, Tribe doesn't bother retelling the tale (except in an author's note) she plunges into the very last moment of their lives and reveals the inner secrets of their hearts. In her hands it becomes possible to have the kind of love that creates a story that will be told until the end of time. The ability she gives her audience to hold her words and listen to them is an experience that begins to allow the layers of her meaning to come to the fore." (A. Baumgarden, New World Review)
