”Her compositions reveal an adventurous mind... A confident and seasoned performer who engages her audience from the first moment” Charles Alexander, Jazzwise

“All the basics, true intonation, crystal-clear diction, an alert sense of phrasing and line, can be absolutely taken for granted in what she does, which is of purest quality..... A singer-composer of very great promise” Sebastian Scotney, LondonJazz

“Smith's vocal has a perfect mix of technique and emotional engagement... Smith comes across as a confident and mature artist and composer, a precocious talent who has produced an exceptional debut album.” Bruce Lindsay, AllAboutJazz.com
