Reviews

 

15/10/2005 Mike Butler - Manchester Life

"...House Of Blue arranges elements from jazz, pop and the Asian underground in unlikely configurations. The jazz influence is hidden behind refined modern beats but comes across in those imaginative arrangements. Where else could Brucia La Terra - the love theme from the Godfather-come served with sitar, throbbing synth, plaintive, Miles Davis-like trumpet and hip-hop beats?
Self-expression is her watchword and her breathy voice blends sexiness and scariness to an unprecedented degree. It can variously beguile and bite..."
Mike Butler 'The Jazzist' Manchester Life Magazine

 

18/08/2005 Peter Bacon - Birmingham Post

"...dreamy on one level but with an underlying urgency too. Bjork and Kate Bush sound like Lupa's chief vocal influences, though her cover of Goodbye Pork Pie Hat shows her jazz and Joni Mitchell leanings too. There are some inventive touches on this debut disc, especially in choosing to give Brucia La Terra (The Godfather Love Theme) a setting of electric sitar from TJ Rehmi and grumbling '70s synth sounds along with heavy beat and atmospheric trumpet...House Of Blue occupies a pretty original niche in between pop and jazz..."
Peter Bacon 'Great depth and manifold pleasures'
(jazz cd reviews)

 

07/06/2005 Roland Zwikker - deo.com

"...one track: Vito, 'I Could Have Loved You More’ is a weird combination of dreamy dark pop, interwoven with melodic pop psychedelica, you can’t help being intrigued by Lupa’s off-kilter artistic vision..."
Roland Zwikker - www.deo.com
'Hypnotic Atmospheric pop songs'
Top 5 chart of the month:
N.2 Lupa - Vito 'I could have loved you more'

 

02/05/2005 Mike Butler, Metro - Jazz/Life

Her name Lupa (the she-wolf) is apt as sexiness and scariness co-exist in her breathy voice, which can variously beguile and bite. Her forthcoming album House Of Blue, arranges elements from jazz, pop, and the Asian underground in unlikely configurations. Where else could Brucia La Terra – the love theme from the Godfather - come served with sitar, throbbing synth, plaintive, Miles Davis-like trumpet and hip-hop beats? One song, Goodbye Pork Pie Hat combines tributes to Lupa’s favourites Joni Mitchell and Charles Mingus, and the unplugged version of Brucia La Terra benefits from the concentrated resources of Lupa’s septet…jazz musicians and wolves have one thing in common: they come out at night and strike with ruthless efficiency. Pure lycanthropic pleasure.

 

01/01/2004 Alan Cross – Birmingham Evening Mail,

Remarkable jazz songbird Lupa, Italian by birth….her forthcoming debut album is an eclectic mix of classic and modern jazz styles with her haunting and passionate voice backed by leading by national and International musicians. Lupa is a name to watch out for.
