“There’s been buzz about Sophia Shorai for some time. I think I heard Leigh Kamman rave about her a while back on his radio show The Jazz Image, and Tanner Taylor wants to record with her, and she’s versatile, singing jazz standards and pop tunes and Latin classics … I like Shorai’s voice a lot. It’s very pretty, sometimes little-girl, sometimes breathy, sometimes tough, reminiscent of Stacey Kent but not derivative.” – Pamela Espeland, Bebopified
