“Every one of those five stars is justified.”
-Jazz Journal, Nic Jones
“From the hymnic ‘Brighter Days’ and monumental ‘More Than Just A Fairytale’ to the modal inflections of ‘Blinded’, vocalist Lauren Kinsella’ delivery is starkly beautiful, with each song’s expressive arc working its way under your skin”
-Jazzwise Peter Quinn
