What people are saying about Dreams In Apartments so far:

“Nancy Harms’ new album, Dreams In Apartments, is truly beautiful… especially my favorite song, ‘Never Let Me Go’” – Will Friedwald, TWITTER

“Now, with her new release, Dreams in Apartments, Harms takes another leap, this one farther into the realm where voice and imagination come together to define the highest art of jazz singing”.  – Andrea Canter, JAZZ POLICE

 “She has a genuinely beautiful voice…and a spacious yet precise sense of timing. She knows how to tell a story and make a lyric spark and hum with emotion and truth. She has courage, and she means business…..Dreams in Apartments’ is about dreams in strange places and anonymous spaces that don’t yet feel like home. It’s about restlessness and change, the need to keep moving, the awareness that time is short, a life in flux and on the cusp. (A) line from ‘And It’s Beautiful’ could be the theme: ‘Every step is a new creation.’ Well-planned and well-paced, Nancy Harms’ second album – only her second – has moments of real magic.” – Pamela Espeland, BEBOPIFIED

“…Small town girl has bigger dreams than doing what was expected of her and blows it all off to move to New York without a parachute. She follows her jazz muse and becomes a full throated thrush…… If this is the result of pent up drive, we’re glad she left the land of 10,000 lakes to take a bite of the big apple. A real find for fans of real jazz singing.” Chris Spector, MIDWEST RECORD

“Nancy Harms….has a marvel of a voice that will do anything she asks of it. It can be sweet and simple or sultry and dark. She colors her voice to suit whatever a particular song demands. She has a sure sense of both rhythm and pitch and can float some high notes that would make an opera singer jealous….For Dreams in Apartments, Harms, having moved to the Big Apple, assembled a stellar group of New York musicians and came up with a first-rate song list …. Nancy Harms is a singer who is sure of herself and has fresh insight into standards. She has an amazing voice and very good compositional talent.”  – Rad Bennett, SOUNDSTAGE NETWORK

“Harms’s voice has the power to light cigarettes and then make them smolder all night long.”  – Dave Sumner, eMUSIC
