“Every once in a while...comes an extraordinary singer such as Jill O’Hara, replete with appropriate inflections, superb control, and seamless, thoughtful phrasing.”                                                                                                          



“In purely musical terms,...utter perfection.”  “O’Hara knows how to capture and hold her audience.” 

“(She) can color a song with all the hues of emotion - dark caressing texture....sweet poignancy....

sizzling sexuality and fun....aching longing.”                                                      



“O’Hara did it to me. Don’t miss her. She’s a real singer. She’s got voice, heart, soul. She’s got it all.”

PRAISE FOR JILL O’HARA ALONE TOGETHER


“ONE OF THE TOP 10 VOCAL ALBUMS OF THE YEAR...IMMEDIATELY ARRESTING AND CONSISTENTLY COMPELLING...HER UNIQUE, CRUSHED VELVET, VULNERABLE VOICE...COMMUNICATES AND CAPTIVATES

...ONE MOMENT A TROUBADOUR, THE NEXT A LAMENTING BALLADEER...HER SOUND CAN BE HYPNOTIC.”                                                                                                                        

Rob Lester SOUND ADVICE

“Impressive.” “Adventurous.” “A stunning mix of material.”  “All her songs show thoughtful presentation.” “Miss O’Hara’s big rangy voice was as effective in the gentle line of “It’s Not Easy Being Green’ as in the intensity of Michael McDonald’s ‘I Can Let Go Now’.”

           John S. Wilson, N.Y. TIMES

“Sensational.”  “A lovely, pure vocalist with a grand voice and subtle style.”  “Her strong, full voice has a warm resonant quality that informs every number. “Incredible arrangements...you can bet O’Hara will find all the club work she wants any time she wants it”

“Thrilling.”  “A lovely woman with a beautiful voice and gracious stage presence.”  “She handles lyrics with sincerity, (and) what impresses more is her treatment of the music.” “The arrangements are so fine that they merit their own individual coverage.”

“HER NEW CD IS EXCELLENT...A RICHLY INTELLIGENT WORK...I LOVE THE QUALITY OF HER VOICE”

“One of the most arresting...performers to be seen in New York City...surprising breadth and vividness..(the) jazz-flavored semi-classical arrangements have much the same mixture of the formal and the spontaneous as her singing.”
