“This French-Canadian Quebec City native delivers a home run on her first effort with the help of expert arranger/musical director Vinny Raniolo, who has breathed new life into many of those old chestnuts, giving many songs an exciting Latin flavor with a pulsing beat and palpable energy. When Ms. Phiro’s vocals, which bear the distinction of sounding sensuously smoky and crystal clear at the same time […] the “Cure” that Porter was talking about has been found. My worries dropped away, and I felt like I was on a vacation to some beautiful villa in France, if not in Paris, at least Bordeaux.” -Jonathan Shade, Nite life exchange
“The versatile yound singer is a pro with a special sound. The talented mezzo mixes her potions well, seemingly an old soul as she sounds ensconced in a comfort zone with these older numbers. Without sounding self-counsciously coy, there’s a playfulness and eye-batting charm about her approach. She is disarming. Best of all, she sounds like she’s well acquainted with the quainter items without sounding overly influenced by or aping those who came before her with the well-traveled classics on Voyages set list.
