    There are good shows and there are great shows, but once in a blue moon you’re at a cabaret and you know something extraordinary is going on.
    - Beverly Creasey, CABARET SCENES

    Found Treasures CD
    Although the title of Brian De Lorenzo's Found Treasures refers to the songs it contains, the cabaret singer is one himself. Possessing a clear tenor which he uses with earnest emotional intensity, De Lorenzo sings with complete commitment.
    - Max O. Preeo, SHOW MUSIC

    Found Treasures CD
    Emotional honesty is a cabaret singer's stock in trade, and De Lorenzo has it. He makes every song sound like an account of his own experience and emotions, and he conveys each one with a directness that makes the experience the listener's as well.... De Lorenzo...is a talented music theater artist with an easy- to-listen-to voice, an engaging, emotionally honest style, and an uncanny knack for picking great, little-known songs.... Ask your record store for it, and if they don't have it, tell them they should.
    - Jon Lehman, THE PATRIOT LEDGER

    When a singer has a voice like Brian De Lorenzo, musicians like to say, “He is a songwriter's best friend.” Schooled in musical theatre since he was a child, De Lorenzo brings to the stage an instrument that is not only well-trained but strikingly beautiful. He has one of those rare voices that make first-time listeners stop and say, “Who is that?”
    - Chet Williamson, WORCESTER MAGAZINE

    Found Treasures Cabaret Show
    His vocals place him among the best currently appearing on the New York cabaret scene.
    - Stu Hamstra, CABARET HOTLINE ONLINE

    Found Treasures Cabaret Show
    De Lorenzo has a very pretty voice, he's especially good at making eye contact, and he's very likable. His “Tonight at Eight” is exuberant, he performs “My First True Love” with considerable personality and charm, and his rendition of “Giants in the Sky” has vitality.
    - Roy Sander, BACK STAGE

    The 12th Annual Mabel Mercer Foundation Cabaret Convention at Town Hall, NYC
    And now, please embrace us with your forgiveness for not having given you the highlights of the convention till this moment. In no particular order, they are: Best Dramatic Performances:...Brian De Lorenzo...
    - Scott & Barbara Siegel, BACK STAGE

    CabaretFest! Provincetown
    De Lorenzo had the audience alternately swooning and cheering in an unconventional version of “Who Will Buy” from Oliver, then had them mesmerized during “A Trick of Fate,” by David Friedman. The trio's sensational reprise of “Fun/Stuck on You” demonstrated the shear joy of cabaret for both performers and audience. It doesn't get much better than this.

    It's GI Jive - 1940s USO Tribute Show
    De Lorenzo has the ability to jump quickly into the feeling of each song, conveying emotion with every phrase he sings.
    - Jim Dorman, THE PATRIOT LEDGER

    Found Treasures Cabaret Show
    Lesley Alexander's Cabaret Roundup Welcome to the Club He knows how to get to the heart of a ballad... He builds moments with a sweet earnest quality in both his voice and his demeanor... Well worth a listen.
    - Lesley Alexander, WVOX/WRTN RADIO, NEW YORK

    Made in America: Vaudeville Songs - A Tribute to the Gumm Family, New York Cast
    A fabulous CD, worthy of it's topic. Beautifully produced. It reminds me of the days when Judy Garland dominated American entertainment.
    - Joe Franklin, WBBR BLOOMBERG RADIO, NEW YORK
