“The only word to describe her dramatic interpretations of “Dancing in the Dark,” “Everybody Knows” and “Tangled Up in Blue” is revelatory. Throughout much of the evening, I was open mouthed with astonishment.” – The New York Times
“One of the best interpreters of Brel and Dylan anywhere on this angst-ridden planet today.” – The Village Voice
