Selected Quotes

"Working with Veronica for almost the last ten years has been a pleasure, both personally and musically. Aside from the fact that she always sings perfectly in tune and, emotionally, from a place inside the lyrics, she possesses that rarest and most prized of musical gifts, a beautiful voice." – Singer Songwriter Michael Franks

"Veronica Nunn is one of the brightest new jazz singers to come along in quite a while. She's original, discerning, independent, and purely swinging." – Clive Davis, New York Daily News

"Veronica Nunn has an unmistakable sound, a rich timbre at once intimate and reserved. Perfect time and remarkable vocal control make her ballads and fast tempos equally intriguing. And can she swing!" – Stuart Troup, New York Newsday

 

"When I give my love to you,' the sensual, steamy duet performed by Michael Franks with featured singer Veronica Nunn was the highlight of the evening. Her voice complimented his as it laced around the melody, ending with a moving vocalese solo, that had the audience on their feet in applause." Los Angeles Times Excerpt from Michael Franks review at the Strand in Los Angeles

"It's been a long time since I've heard a real jazz singer!"
– Renowned jazz critic Stuart Troupe, upon hearing a Veronica Nunn demo tape being played on the house system at Sweet Basil, New York City, 1996
