Lakeisha Benjamin: Sydney Morning Herald – John Shand ★★★★

“…the more potent the music grew, the more her personality softened. It was fascinating to witness a musical encounter that began so tentatively and reached such heights.”

Veronica Swift: Sydney Morning Herald – John Shand  ★★★★

“Remember when music exploded with the shock of the new? It was miraculous that sound could be so thrilling, moving, mind-expanding and even life-defining … it was almost like hearing jazz for the first time, again. “
