REVIEWS, QUOTES & PRESS
What people are saying about "Empire":
"Great sound!! Just a moment ago I enjoyed listening to Empire." - Frederic, Music Fan
What people are saying about "Lately It's Cold" and "Diamonds and Stiletto Shoes":
"If I were walking along the streets of New York at night, contemplating and wondering, ‘Lately It's Cold’ would be the tune in the background. My love for this one will never fade away." - Roshel, Music Lover
"‘Diamonds and Stiletto Shoes’ is a good song with a great hook" - Gary Dayze, Vegas Entertainment Radio
"Singer/songwriter Anna Gutmanis has released two new singles, both hitting the store shelves this week, much to my delight. You know what is even better? I love them both!" - Howard Stump, Soundtrack to my Day
"Anna Gutmanis is doing a really original sounding cabaret motif. I’ve gotten a sneak peak of a new song called “Diamonds and Stilettos” that I’m currently enjoying from her upcoming album" - Jaimie Vernon, "The Feminine Musique"
What people are saying about "Glimmer In The Dark:
"Gutmanis jockeys between musical styles as with her sultry mid-baritone and exceptional piano work. Songs like “Hello Again” and “First In Love” (featuring second vocalist Karen Dinardo) exude a playful and poignant Leonard Cohen cabaret breeziness while “People (Got To Get It Together)” finds Gutmanis channeling her best Mavis Staples inspirational gospel voice." - Jaimie Vernon (author of Canadian Pop Music Encyclopedia), ‘Don’t Believe A Word I Say’ column
"Reviewing “Glimmer In The Dark” was a bright spot in my day, and will impress any music lover who appreciates hearing the voice of experience, social consciousness, and outstanding music!" - Paul Anderson, The Entertainment Bank
"Gutmanis radiates with her musical mission. The album's most ambitious track, "Middle of the Line," features a blazing electric guitar solo, and sounds like something that Bonnie Raitt would cover." - Gregg Shapiro, The Bay Area Reporter, OutSmart Magazine
"She surprises the world once again and releases "Glimmer In The Dark" and every track is greater than the last. Anna and everyone who made this CD possible – you nailed it!" - Tom Edmondson, Producer - The Tenth Voice 90.1FM KKFI Kansas City, Missouri USA
"This could well be a 'best of' CD… Whether songs of love, friendship, activism, appreciation, inspiration or loss, Gutmanis is universal in her appeal and comprehension... Much like John Lennon's "Imagine", Anna has the ability to touch your soul with a common and shared emotional sense of what is." - Len Rogers, Founder – Rainbow World Radio and StoneWall Society
"I personally LOVE Anna’s new album “Glimmer In The Dark”! I hope it gleans the rewards/awards which in my opinion are justly deserved." – Anita Gibbons, Producer, "Women On Waves", JOY Melbourne
"Anna Gutmanis has a gorgeous deep voice, and her pop songs speak of love and coming out and people getting together. The CD has 13 tracks and they're all good to hear." - BB, CJLY, Nelson BC Canada
