“Two big successes in just a few days - winning a young talent contest at the Bratislava Jazz Days and a concert as a support band of one of the biggest stars on the jazz scene, the American singer Dianne Reeves - are a great culmination of a yearlong endeavor. Anyone who has seen them live must be clear that they have a great future ahead.” - Marflak Patrik, Slovakia

“The couple, who met at the Prague Conservatory, reap success after success and after their short concert in the crowded hall followed a deserved long standing ovation.”

- GARAI Tomas, Hudba Sk Magazine

,,The members of the jury are used to a high standard of performing, but these two young people still seemed to be revelations. They showed essential musicality, extraordinary good intonation, suggestive phrasing, and flawless orientation in harmony as Kristin improvises with ease and charm. Her expression is not unlike the fantastic Gretchen Parlato. Jakob accompanies creatively and with humility, sensitively creating an environment in which the singer feels good."

- JASLOVSKY Marian, Aktuality Sk Magazine

Original song from debut album performed on 3podia TV Music Show

“Kristin’s voice is truly perfect. Her pure intonation and phrasing are at a high level. Jakob plays his guitar as if he was born with it. Feeling enthusiasm and passion for music.”

- REPKOVA Anna, Jazz Sk Magazine

Supporting Naturally 7

Bratislava Jazz Days

"Kristina showed 100% control over her vocal cords, not only by intonation or selection of tone colors but also by setting them in time. The singer and modest guitarist with no less precise technique and feeling gave the impression that in addition to musical harmony, it seemed like they have also synchronized inhalations and exhalations.”

- GARAI Tomas, Hudba Sk Magazine
