"Tupper has performed all over the world. Her candlelit, sultry voice evokes Joni Mitchell and Norah Jones, having a base in jazz and pop and drifting to folk. Her subtle nuances, both melodic and sung, pull you into each song."
“There is a lot of subtlety in Lara Tupper’s performances. This is much more than a CD of good songs well sung. Attentive listening will be rewarded.” – Chris Brown, Owner, Bull Moose Music
"When Bobby Sweet and Lara Tupper team up, we’re talking musical heaven." - Lisa Kristoff
“Steeped in jazz and singer/songwriter tradition, Lara Tupper and Bobby Sweet weave melodies into a tapestry of complications that sound so easy. It's not easy to do what they do. And they do it so well.” - Nate Eldridge, Producer and Creative Director, 207
"Together, Lara and Bobby complete the sounds of their admired singer-songwriters with a twist. Their music is at once soothing and invigorating." - Robert Mitchell
