Bird Call In The Press

“...wisely sparse orchestration that allows Chiara’s soulful soprano (reminiscent at times of Kate Bush) to shine and charm...” – The Deli

“...bluesy piano rhythms with a touch of Bob Dylan and Rufus Wainwright...” – Wears The Trousers

“Her vibrant, soulful wail at times recalls the romance of Billie Holiday or the sideways grin of Macy Gray, while challenging young contemporaries like Adele and Duffy.” – East Bay Express
