REVIEWS

“[a] waify but iron willed singer… a young pro with lite jazz leanings amid her folkie musings, Tolar has a lot on the ball and conveys it nicely.”

– Chris Spector, Midwest Record

“…soothing and evocative… the kind of music you want to hear on a cool Autumn Saturday with coffee brewing in the kitchen…”

– Valerie Smaldone, Media Personality

“Refreshing… Imbued with the songwriting and vocal qualities of Carole King, Judy Collins and Norah Jones. Each song on Big Blue Moon is produced to perfection and should appeal to Tolar’s fans because of their beauty, relevance and intimacy.”

– Paula Edelstein, Suite101.com

“A bright mix of Folk and Jazz with a distinct Pop sensibility that should garner a lot of attention for Sarah Tolar. As a songwriter she shows flashes of brilliance… fans who appreciate great music and great songwriting will eat this up.”

– Wildy Haskell, Wildy’s World

“Sarah’s CD release part at the Canal Room was a huge success. She packed the room and captivated the attention of every person in it with her charisma and charm; a true professional, and a true talent.”

– Deena Goodman, The Canal Room, NYC

“Sarah Tolar, a stunning blonde belter, sits in for a few tunes and heats the room, her voice lush with deep-seated generosity. Her take on “Cheek to Cheek” inspires envy, and that casual way of resting one hand on her hip, almost in a half-bend as she hollers… effortlessly sexy.”

– CulturalCapitol.com

“Tolar proves that contemporary jazz can be sexy, in an unfussy, silk-and-red-wine sort of way… [Big Blue] Moon opts for steady sophistication rather than stylized showiness, which speaks well of Tolar’s self-awareness as an artist and makes for a moving debut album.”

– Lara Crombie, WeHeartMusic.com
