"Her piano playing, reflecting classical studies, can be virtuosic at her best; Ms. Ziman brings her own core of craft and insight to the mainstream. She tucks musicianly treats into her songs: meter shifts, unexpected chord progressions and structures that break free of verse-chorus-bridge, all crisply executed by her band.
-Jon Pareles, New York Times

"It is rare to come across a voice as clear and sweet as Ziman’s, and she is a fabulous songwriter. The music is addictively catchy and the lyrics are smart, funny, and ironic".
-Rosemary Welsch, WYEP
