She has discovered a lode of the rarest commodity in contemporary music: joy.New York Magazine (Justin Davidson)
She changes gears so quickly and so easily, and every turn is so unexpected and so full of joy. And it’s in such a convincing and cohesive manner that you could never doubt the sense of architecture and the sense of premeditation.Jeremy Geffen (Carnegie Hall)
