Press reviews for Lili Añel:

“Her songs are consistently excellent” – Christopher Loudon/JazzTimes

“Think Joan Armatrading, Joni Mitchell and Nina Simone all rolled into one, infused with her own consciousness as a woman with mixed parentage (Black and Cuban), and raised in New York’s Spanish Harlem.” – Ken Franckling/ kenfrancklingjazznotes.blogspot.com

“A uniquely gifted artist who is raw, ethereal and incredibly real. Lili sounds like no one but herself, a rare gift in an industry of clones” – Brent Black/Not Just Jazz
