Lauren Lee is one of the new breed of singer songwriter. She has all the bonafides of a traditional jazz singer and pianist, but she needs to do things her own way. As a singer and composer, she gives her own imprimatur to cross-cultural experimentation, off -the-beaten-track forms of vocal expression, never straying far from the post-bop mothership.
- Suzanne Lorge, All About Jazz
Lee- in her voice and at the keyboard- is, in a very balanced way, presenting a unique approach, but one grounded enough to support the contrasting moods and musics, which really is what makes 'Windowsill' so engrossing
- Anthony Dean-Harris, Downbeat
What is most exciting about the record, I think, is how Lee uses the voice..... the whole thing is comfortable and delicious (translated from Dutch)
- Jan Granlie, Salt-Peanuts.eu
Lauren Lee is a talented pianist and composer, and a singer with a flexibility and sense of adventure in her voice which give her music a light, optimistic feel, although repeated listening reveals it has surprising depth and complexity. She brings elements of art song into the realm of pop-jazz as if she were Meredith Monk invading a Steely Dan recording session
- Jerome Wilson, All About Jazz
