“Whose Shadow?” Starts Receiving Wonderful Press

Reviews of my sophomore album “Whose Shadow?” (released March 30) are just beginning to come in (and regularly updated on my Press page). I was floored to receive a truly remarkable review (also the first from the USA!) from Everett. R. Davis at All About Jazz:

“She has emerged from the Canadian scene with a spellbinding voice…with boldly unique style and a vocal attitude of her own. With exceptional tonal control and her mastery of inflection, Lara Solnicki has without doubt, charted her vocal journey, affirming her position as a world class jazz singer.”
