“Some musicians are talented, some brilliant and a few just seem to be made out of music. Liane Carroll is one of these. Every phrase she sings sounds unstudied, fresh and somehow inevitable”, The Observer.
“A soulful, emotive singer capable of reducing other singers and listeners alike to tears with her heartbreaking ability to live a lyric or making them jump with joy with her breathless vocal virtuosity”, Quietmoney Recordings
Her latest album, Seaside, has received four-star reviews in the Jazz Press with Peter Quinn in Jazzwise stating "In Liane Carroll, the art of the song has one of its greatest exponents”
