Laura Bernay


RTEmagicC_Laura_Ellington_eyes_open_01.jpg“Laura Bernay is one of those jazz singers who respects their audiences. She knows that apart from being loyal to the beautiful jazz idiom she performs with her éclectique repertoire she is expected to entertain people as well. This she does to the max and superbly! As a result she fills the venues in which she performs with her quartet.” (Victor Zappner, Devonport Jazz Festival Musical Director)

“Laura is certainly a versatile vocalist-equally at home with jazz as well as standards and other genres. She has that great quality of reacting so effortlessly with her audience and in doing so, bringing us the audience almost on stage with her…..”
(Murray Lavelle, Devonport Jazz Festival)

“Congratulations on your CD! The packaging, photo’s, layout are all first class, as is the standard of the recordings from a technical viewpoint.
The nice thing about this CD is that it takes a few plays to really start appreciating all the work that went into it, in other words even after playing it more than 5 times I hear something new the next time.
Paul Millard is great on Night and Day, and Mike Nelson is always good, Murray Wilkins and Peter Evans, world class!”
Peter Wakeford-presenter of “Jazz Swing and other Good Things” Capital Radio Perth for 10 years.

“It’s fantastic!”
Paul McIntyre, ABC Radio Hobart

Subsequent listenings made me appreciate why you chose those songs and how vital it was for you to be content with your arranger. You guys are a great team and the musicianship is second to none. Your voice is better than ever–what a range! Thank you again for providing me with such great pleasure–you are so gifted.”
Bruce Lizotte U.S.A.

“I can hear the enormous attention to detail and nuance, your warmth, I love the French songs, the reassuring nature of the ones I know, the challenge and stimulation of the ones I don’t. Your musicians sound really good. I’m interested in your scat sounds, in the breathing – in the whole thing really! I like you in the lower register though your higher voice’s sheer beauty is a given. Your voice is wonderfully young – a foil to the maturity and musicianship of its interpreting.”
Susan Hamilton, Sydney
