"Easton is a distinguished artist in her own right (just listen to her All That I Need, a blues-tinged jazz-pop ballad, of the highest order, with a not-so-vaguely haunting Twin Peaks aesthetic)...She’s a picture of sexy elegance, glamour and poise. More importantly, she has the seasoned maturity to
really deliver, vocally."
