Reviews


“Simple and modest-sounding but full of clever musical maneuvers, ‘A Song For You’ by jazz pop marvel Aisling Quinn is almost like a nursery rhyme, bold in melody, but shy and child-like in its sentiment. Gorgeous.”

Celina Murphy – Hotpress 2012

                                                           ……

5*****  the album “oozes songwriting class from the begining…I’m not going to say that Quinn sounds like any artist in particular, because she simply doesn’t. There’s something authentic and original running through this album that is hard to pin down. Reference points are as varied as The Beatles, Laura Nyro, Rufus Wainwright and Ella Fitzgerald. ”

“Small Town Feet recalls one of the greats Rickie Lee Jones. Muted trumpets and a Bossa Nova rhythm forms the backdrop to the gorgeously sultry, Alone Again’…’Not Sorry’ recalls the almost forgotten New York songstress Laura Nyro.”

“Aisling Quinn created a musical score that harmonised with the plays portrayal of mundane daily life …Instrumental music alternated between the piano and the guitar complementing the plays themes of freedom and containment”
