"...the brilliant British chanteuse who inserts sticks of emotional dynamite into songs of every vintage...Empathy is her game, and few singers in any genre extend themselves more deeply into the lives of others." (Stephen Holden - The New York Times)
"This pensive collection hits its stride from the outset, with a brave rendering of Once in a Lifetime - it's as if David Byrne had fallen into the hands of a Sondheim heroine."
(The Sunday Times - UK)
