“...From her towering opening performance, Heidi Vogel says everything in the right key…. Vogel’s voice is an extraordinarily rich and complex instrument, one that you can easily fall in love with...” – Jazzwise Magazine
“…Vogel’s extraordinarily rich and complex vocal timbre proved capable of completely seducing the senses… such that she can lift the soul while simultaneously breaking your heart” – The Arts Desk
“…It is an approach that intensifies masterworks by Jobim, Vinicius de Moraes, Gilberto Gil and Ivan Lins, better than any interpreter since Elis Regina. Vogel captures an intimacy that is less romantic than conspiratorial – whispered secrets and shared confidences rather than pillow talk.” – Jazz Times

“...But it was Heidi Vogel who stole the show. She bellowed out with a voice made from Mountains and oceans, while every last drop of emotion was wrung’” – The Evening Standard (The Royal Albert Hall)
“…Heidi Vogel’s soaring vocals send goosebumps down the spine…..a standout moment when Vogel takes the stage.” – The Evening Standard (Brixton Academy)

“...Vogel’s brilliant diversity, marks her out as a rarity amongst British musicians, her solo debut dazzles in its meticulous delivery and slow-burning yet resounding bright fuse.” – Sounds and Colours
