Bob Weir (UK), Jazz Journal: You have a very expressive voice and you write exceptionally good songs. I also like your interpretation of the E. E. Cummings poems. Congratulations on an excellent album!

Her voice is wonderfully expressive. And she’s also got some genuine chops, as illustrated by «Tiny Bombs.» I like very much her interpretations of Cummings.

Django Bates (UK): Tanya’s voice is very beautiful. There is no doubt about that!
