Reviews:

“Lynk’s tribute to Lady Day has value in terms of both entertainment and artistry. She possesses a strong and supple voice, tapping into the pained spirit of Billie Holiday’s music. Lynk receives tasteful and intelligent musical support from guitarist Peter Bell, string bassist Derek Neiderman and Jason Anderson on reeds. Bell, in particular, shows an affinity for blues. Recommended!” -Frank-John Hadley…Down Beat / Pulse! / Amazon.com

I’m from Cambridge, as is Peter Bell, a fine singer and songwriter as well as guitarist ." -Bonnie Raitt Album liner notes
