“Once again, Anna proves that she is one of our nation’s most listenable vocalists ... She has a wonderful voice, her intonation is spot-on, and she combines her very personal use of phrasing and dynamics with a warmly vibrant presence ...”
- Jan Olsson, Skånska Dagbladet
“Anna Pauline live is like a shot of vitamins, charismatic and linguistically gifted ... a totally successful debut album ... Anna’s voice - natural, mature, and self-assured - is the perfect vehicle for her very personal and sensitive compositions ...”
- Lasse Seger, Orkesterjournalen
“Still, my favourite during this concert was Anna Pauline Andersson,
a new discovery for me. And the way in which she sang: with so much personal integrity -
as herself and nobody else. She borrowed Billie Holiday's ‘Good morning heartache’
to reveal her own heart, her own pain...”
- Bengt Eriksson, Ystad Allehanda
“... I am especially impressed by her warm presence when she sings ... a young Rebecka Törnqvist comes to mind, and in my book, that’s a very positive analogy ... a singularly promising debut!”
- Ralph Bretzer, Skånska Dagbladet
“... Thank you for Anna Pauline! She is a very good singer, very relaxed and resting in her way of phrasing as well as rhythmically assured and confident... does not force herself on anything... ‘No diva- shit’ as one of my friends would say. Not to mention ‘Lights are Out’ is a grand piece. It would be interesting to hear her try out some [jazz] standards too...”
- Thorbjørn Sjøgren, Politiken
“A clear, pleasant singing voice and winning, right attitude makes Anna Pauline difficult to resist. In every moment you hear the sparkling eyes and warm smile.”
- Sven Bjerstedt, Ystad Allehanda
“Anna Pauline has a completely different, slightly more modern sound and expression... Her original composition ‘Someone like you’ has a slight touch of Joni Mitchell and is enriched by a lingering soprano sax solo with arranger Claus Sörensen.”
- Dan Backman, Svenska Dagbladet
“Seriously: I never praise where I don’t mean it, so it’s TRUE rather than SWEET... Anna sings wonderfully... one of the best videos I’ve ever shot... I wish for a concert tour!”
- Michael Steinman, Jazz Lives, New Jersey, NYC
“Anna Pauline Andersson delivers standards, movie themes and originals in her own vibrantly pure, straight-ahead style...Anna Pauline interprets her lyrics with authority and maturity ...”
- Anna Löfgren, Ystads Allehanda
“... It might seem odd to find a jazz vocalist in a blues tent, but Anna Pauline was definitely in the right place. She has a solid blues base in her music, and a voice that ranged from beautifully tender to raw in a jazzed-up version of the blues standard ‘Got my mojo workin’’. All in all, a great way to start the day: sunshine outside, great music inside ...”
- Ralph Bretzer, Malmö Festival 2014
