A VANGUARD VOCALIST
JAZZIZ Magazine 2020
"If you like a little soul with your jazz – maybe with a little side of funk – then I’ve certainly got the vocalist for you:
— Brian Zimmerman, Jazziz Magazine (Vanguard Vocalists)
"She gives the impression of inventing the song in the moment as if its never been done before"
— Brian Morton, Down Beat Magazine
Brianna Thomas, "Everybody Knows." This is a multigenre excursion of soulfulness, evoking many moods and emotions. Thomas' flexible delivery is effortless and assured, particularly on her rendition of Nina Simone's "Mississippi Goddam."
— Robin James, Minneapolis Star Tribune
"Brianna Thomas is an utter powerhouse of a vocalist – blessed with a jazz sensibility, absolutely, but able to move that material right down into the funky soul and R&B worlds."
— Simon Sweetman, Off The Tracks
"Brianna Thomas continues to ascend as one of the powerful and engaging voices on the music scene today."
— The Jazz Page
"Everybody Knows" ...is a complete Jazz Statement.
— Joe Ross, Roots Music Report
