Jazzism Feb '22
… Definitely an exceptional debut - in great anticipation of the next musical “strike"
- (Concerto, Austria)
Respect for this beautiful album.
Jessica plays with us a bit and even seduces us, but her songs help us to think or even dream. Which is rare these days.
- (Sk Jazz, Slowakije)
Her singing is impressive, a great talent. At the same time, she comes across as immensely self-confident.
…the young Dutchwoman shows her talent not only as a singer, but also with loud airy-light original compositions, colorful and disarmingly undogmatic…
…No question: Something is growing here!
- (Hessischer Rundfunk)
…Sparse arrangements, exposed vocals and really beautiful compositions make listening to this album a great pleasure.
...Hard to believe this is a debut!
...How Jessica merges with the ingenious band as a dynamic unit, I could listen
to it forever.
...De Boer has a clean voice, good timing and phrasing that come into its own
in her melodic songs.
... Whether with or without words, de Boer creates a musical universe that goes beyond the immediate meaning of the lyrics
All in all, a dreamlike unity of all participants can be heard, a mood that uses elements of jazz and a bit of pop in a very loose and relaxed way.
...I think Jessica is a great new addition to the musical landscape in the Netherlands: original, involved with the world we live in, big hearted with great craftsmanship and a singing talent to match."
