Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Halie s incredible voice and maturity in writing & phrasing belie her young years. Here, her
interpretation of standards and contemporary favorites is flawless!

Review

Halie is one of the most skilled and gifted vocalists
you re likely to hear in your entire life and could be
the brightest hope for the future of music. She has an
undeniably beautiful and powerful voice that drips with
real emotion. --Songwriters Monthly Reviews

Loren s singing conveys the wonders of the invisible
world: wounded defiance, stubborn love, hard-earned
hopefulness. She sounds like someone who knows a thing
or two about a thing or two, and has the chops to make
that knowledge a thing of beauty. --Eugene Weekly

I am a Japanese. I lost my house by the Tsunami of the big earthquake last year. For healing of the heart, I heard live of my favorite Halie Loren " in Tokyo. And I had her sign a CD. It is my treasure.

Heart First (the album), sent me head over heels. Whether they are written by her or her own renditions of classics, All songs that Halie lends her voice to give me the same reaction. Matt Treder deserves a shout out, also.

Halie's new album is nothing short of wonderful. I have all her albums and I've seen her in concert many times, and she keeps getting better and better! I highly recommend this album to anyone who likes jazz, or is looking into jazz. She is on her way to becoming a star for sure!

Halie Loren's break through album is a must for all lovers of jazz! Some of these songs are unlikely 'jazz' tunes.
But she pulls them off elegantly. Bob Marley's 'Waiting in Vain' - awesome. Neil Young's, 'Lotta Love' becomes a silky
smooth jazzy tune with Halie's rare and wonderful ability to morph almost any song her way. . .and make it work.
Her original songs, A Woman's Way and Heart First proves, once again, that she is a consummate songwriter.
Heart First is destined to become a classic! A must have for anyone who loves a singer/songwriter who adores what
they do and does it so well.

Halie is a major talent without question. Her voice is gorgeous. Even when she is singing a pop-rock thing, her delivery is jazzy. For people who are jazz aficianados, she will be unlikely to appeal. She is versatile, and polished, and she has a flair for language. For people who like good music, are not too concerned with category, and recognize a beautiful voice when they hear it, buy this album.

I ran across some sample songs of hers in Amazon. From some random samples I picked, I like them all. I then bought Stages, Heart First, and After Dark. I found her voice Very nice, unique, playful but not overdone at all, melodious. A few days later, I found in Wiki that Heart First is her fifth album and actually won "Jazz Critique Magazine's Golden (top) prize in the vocal album section of Jazz Audio Disc Awards 2011", no wonder! As of Dec. 1, 2011, it was the No. 1 pre-ordered vocal jazz album from HMV Japan. Her other albums also won variety awards from "Best Jazz Awards" to "Top Selling Albums". Better late that never, I thought, to own her albums. Listening to those three albums of hers, each albums has own characteristics, but each song in each albums is so unique that I do not feel boring at all. In Heart First, I like the instruments especially the piano, bass, guitars, drums, harmonica, and the cello, they all play just like in the stage set up, so relaxing. She could sing "All Of me" so different that it brings a different nuance, "A Woman's Way" was sung relax I imagine strolling in a downtown, "C'est Si Bon" arrangement is so superb, a good communication between the the instruments and the voice. I feel that she sings "Waiting in Vain" so casually, just like to talk to us about "waiting in vain", nice. I plan to get two of her other albums, "They Oughta Write a Song" and "Full Circle". I am also considering her Holiday album.
