One of Canada’s most brilliant and lyrically impactful vocalists...Candid, full of fascination and humour,... An exceptional bout of worldly experience pours from her captivating vocal sound."

Beatroute Magazine


"Over the course of ten albums, Orit Shimoni never fails to impress but Strange And Beautiful Things might be her best yet and it deserves to be heard far and wide."



"A trek through American music over ten, melancholy-ish songs, all of which borrow freely from various eras and styles, only to modernize them in a way that'll make you forget modernity altogether."
