'For me, she is a modern female Beethoven. I know that is very high praise, but I think many folks will be looking back many years from now and she will still be current. That is what makes her music stand the test of time. Her albums play so smooth like a good book you just can't put down, and yet before you know it, it is over' Dave Wilson AudioAficionado.org.
