"This is quintessential heart-music by a vocalist who seems to have connected with the deepest recesses of her being emerging into brightness again with songs of haunting beauty." 

World Music Report 

"An exquisite singer-songwriter" 

****Downbeat Magazine

"London-born vocalist and composer Joanna Wallfisch produces a towering achievement with this new album of (mostly) bittersweet songs and rich arrangements, using a large sonic palette to dramatic and highly musical effect."

London Jazz Review 

"Put quite simply, Blood & Bone is both the sound of a broken heart laid bare and 

the sonic summation of a journey toward its reconstruction. It's an album informed by the gravitas of naked truth, finding vocalist Joanna Wallfisch creating and delivering a singular blend of poise, pain, and passion with startling clarity...(her band) provide a rasied platform to stand on... all join in solidarity with Wallfisch to help produce musical beauty of a many-colored sort that speaks to straight to the human condition." 

 **** All About Jazz 

 

"Her tales have not only a reflective, poetic quality but a directness too, venturing into acoustic country-pop that has echoes of singer-songwriters such as Carole King or Glen Campbell... her songs, with their intelligent craft eschew MOR clichés" 

*** Jazzwise Magazine
