"Her instrument is, in a word, phenomenal."
Stephen Holden, The New York Times
"...a siren song to lost cosmopolitans everywhere. Dark, funny, and cosmically aligned."
Richard Gehr, The Village Voice
Carol Lipnik's voice is a thing of wonder, soaring across four octaves with remarkable fluidity, gently cradling listeners in its sublimely sustained tone. Her songs have an aura of prophecy and the power to wound and heal. A poet of beauty, decay and desolation, Carol creates, harmonically rich soundscapes in collaboration with pianist Matt Kanelos; Mythical imagery the moon, crows, wolves, boats and journeys evoke the eternal world of nature and hint at some past or future devastation. Throughout the dreamlike landscapes run subtle, sly allusions to the perils and possibilities of contemporary life, encouraging us to mourn, be comforted, and reach for another ecstatic moment of joy.

Downtown's intimate supper-club Pangea is the ultimate in alt, playing home to some of the best in alt cabaret. The New York Times recently called it a bohemian oasis not unlike the fabled Max's Kansas City from days gone by."
