"a cleverly lyrical, coolly intriguing jazz chanteuse " - New York Music Daily
"Singer Dorian Devins occupies a pretty unique place in jazz. She doesn’t just sing standards and the occasional obscurity: she reinvents instrumental numbers from across the years by penning her own pensive, tersely crafted, often subtly amusing lyrics. She sings in a cool, unadorned mezzo-soprano that harks back to golden age songbirds from June Christy to Peggy Lee, and like those singers, works the subtlest corners of her repertoire. " - Lucid Cultiure, Dec. 2016
"(Devins) takes a less often traveled road and blazes a new trail in standards interpretation." - All About Jazz
"..her vocal artistry transcends the traditional singer mode and moves more to a blending of melody and harmonic invention as part of the band"
-@ Critical jazz
"Welcome the new Eddie Jefferson! "- C. Michael Bailey, The One from The Other
