“Heather Rice. The vocal love child of Patty Griffin and Celine Dion”
Carly Wolfson, Creative Entertainment Group
“A warm, jazzy style… her voice is absolutely stunning!”
The Star Phoenix
“Like an exquisite piece of vintage oil painting, there are splashes of folk-country, dashes of New Orleans blues, splurges of New Age-y jazz, and gallops of old school gospel.” This is one of the most enjoyable and colorful albums in a long while.”
Timothy Yap, Hallels Magazine
“A singer-songwriter known for her unique vocal interpretations of material in the jazz and pop realms.”
“Opening (for Joan Osborne) was Heather Rice, another strong-voiced woman whose piano ballads soared.”
