***** – Maverick Magazine

– Kipper, Grammy Award-Winning Producer (Sting, James Taylor)

“This debut announces a huge talent in the form of a young singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist…her music evokes a wide range of class acts from Alison Krauss to Eva Cassidy and Norah Jones. There’s plenty of depth, grit and sophistication…Impressive stuff.” – Acoustic Magazine

“Every one of the thirteen tracks is beautiful…beautifully orchestrated with overlapping harmonies” – R2

“Sumudu is reminiscent of the golden days of greats like Paul McCartney and Stevie Wonder; artists who thought nothing of penning entire albums alone, laying down the parts in the studio, then arranging and conducting the string section, all before taking a quick lunch break”
