“Though her approach has earned her comparisons to Gretchen Parlato and Becca Stevens…and Esperanza Spalding…she’s got her own thing, and it’s very much worth listening to.

Jon Garelick, Arts Fuse

A voice and lyrical ability of great originality.

Matthew Wright, London Jazz

A remarkable talent…Her voice is a bell, a curve of pliant sound, a personality, a vessel for great songs.

Will Layman, PopMatters

A number of the more and most intelligent female vocalists come to mind-Tori Amos, Norma Winstone, Joan Baez, Joni Mitchell, etc.-in Schrire’s work.

Mark S. Tucker, FAME

Wonderful…an acute eye for observation of the small details

Alex Gallagher, Folk Radio UK

It’s not an easy voice to pigeon-hole, which speaks volumes for her originality.

Lance Liddle, BeBop Spoken Here
