„Powerful, challenging pop music with ambition and multifaceted artistry.“ - Downbeat
‟I was absolutely bowled over by the engaging quality of her voice, her imaginative arrangements and the wonderfully controlled energy of her delivery.” - Jazz Journal
‟Her voice flitting from purist acrobatics to electronics-filtered extremes. All of her vocal perversion is in real-time, as she resourcefully knits a construction of rhythmic repeats, or flicks on a horrific distortion effect, often snapping back into something profoundly unsettling in its depth of contrast. Meanwhile, she’s back at the piano, marrying voice and keys in a completely symbiotic existence.” - All About Jazz
“Kadri Voorand is always restlessly flying off into abstract vocal improvisation, or reciting Estonian poetry, or creating an imaginary intercom announcement.
