“Haydn has a voice so sublime that it is truly like the fifth string
of her virtuoso violin.” – Paper Magazine
“Courageously intimate with her audience, Haydn lays into her violin
as if it’s a wild animal only she can bring to heel. The effect is an
emotional magic show…a party of sound…electronica beat, lyrical
strings, ethereal voice, and words that resonate in the battered
chamber of the human soul.” – L.A. Weekly
“Unique, creative, moving, bold, sonically beautiful and really fucking
clever. The strike of her bow is aggressively rich. Lili’s
relationship with her instrument is so intimate and intense, the two
work together with such fidelity. I love this record for its
craftsmanship & honesty. I would go on this ride again & again &
again…” – Linda Perry (Songwriter and Producer for P!nk, Celine Dion & more) praising upcoming album
