"For an artist to have a "full house" sign on the doors of the Theatre stage speaks volumes for that artist. Odette and her excellent band achieved this no mean feat with a superb performance. Her encore was richly deserved and the large queue at the CD stall after the concert serves as its own testament to how much the audience enjoyed her show."
Jim McLaughlin, Musicport, Whitby
“I’d read other promoters’ comments on Odette’s website, so I was anticipating a good concert. Well, it actually turned out to be quite brilliant. You don’t have to like jazz, folk or World Music to appreciate Odette, as her material will appeal to anyone who appreciates good musicianship and music of the highest quality - something this lady and her fellow musicians have in abundance. Highly recommended.”
Steve Wright, Jazz Curator, Colchester Arts Centre Jazz Club

"Your concert was a real treat, I enjoyed every minute of it, your beautiful voice, the band and the haunting voice of the violin player. The on-stage persona of some performers is seldom the true persona of the same person off-stage! You however Odette, are truly a lovely human being - on and off stage. Thank you so very much!"

"This was a wonderful performance of mixed music from old, well-loved classics to brand new songs with flavours from different parts of the world.
We had a chance to see how very talented each of the musicians was during the course of the show and the way they all combined to make each song a delight. This, the feeling of happiness generated and Odette’s beautiful, clear voice made for an immensely enjoyable evening and we look forward to being able to do it again.”

“We were lucky enough to host Odette and her very impressive band at Empire Hall Graffham last Saturday. Gosh what a treat we had. Odette’s voice and music are simply delicious; mellow, insightful and bright with a range of influences. That would be already special enough, but the contributions of the ever so talented band just made the whole evening a very, very special experience. Thank you all very much!!!!!”
Jim Kirke, Promoter, Empire Hall Graffham
"A great musical evening for the village and enjoyed by everyone, young and old. The musicians were terrific and it was not only a pleasure to hear them, but also to watch as they played and accompanied Odette in her singing, and her singing was splendid, first class and had everyone swaying in their seats. The comments as the villagers left the evening were most complementary. Thanks Odette for a great evenings entertainment”
