Beautiful reviews for “Butterfly Blue”

Halie Loren’s new album “Butterfly Blue” (available now!) is receiving glowing reviews… a few snippets:

“Halie Loren glides in flight on her new album Butterfly Blue from newly composed musical poetry to the songbook of American music on the wings of a deepening and darkening musical sense, an extraordinary accompanying group of musicians and a voice to wring out all the passion, pain and promise of living. We are captives of the cages of our lives but the spirit still soars. ” – International Review of Music (Read the entire review HERE, or visit the halieloren.com Press page)

“This is another first-class album from Halie Loren. While she continues to wow us with her voice and musical sensibility, her depth grows as she presents more of her own material. This is a fabulous album I’ll listen again and again. I highly recommend it.” – MusicSnake (by Joe Frasier. Read the entire review HERE, or visit the halieloren.com Press page)

“Butterfly Blue” is receiving some great reviews right out of the gate! Here is a recent highlight:


Halie Loren’s Butterfly Blue strikes a perfect balance of classic and original jazz songs. The new blends with the old and the old is made new in Ms. Loren’s renditions of them … This is another first-class album from Halie Loren. While she continues to wow us with her voice and musical sensibility, her depth grows as she presents more of her own material. This is a fabulous album I’ll listen to again and again. I highly recommend it.”
