Reviews on 'What If'
VRIJE GELUIDEN (nl) by Maarten van Heuven: "What If is really worth discovering"
PAROOL (nl) 4☆ by Jan Jasper Tamboer: "EvenSanne sounds like pop, jazz and fusion, but mainly as themselves"
JAZZNU (nl) by Rinus van der Heijden: "Extremely solid in music and lyrics"
JAZZENZO (nl) by Erno Elsinga: "The alienating character is also the great power of the album"
Radio XYMPHONIA (nl) "EvenSanne's music could best be placed under 'modern vocal jazz', but it is so rich and varied that all fans of progressive pop or the 'creatively-shaped song' should listen to it at least once."
INMUSIC (de) 4☆ by Rainer Guérich: "The result is a totally unique, complex and multi-layered progressive folk-art-jazz-rock-disc.
KULTUR KEUCHE (de): "Sound-Magic on CD.."
FRIZZ (de) 5☆: "These dreamlike compositions can't be tagged under any genre, but are therefore even more convincing"
"Things really started to happen for us after InJazz 2016!" - A little throwback to last years InJazz.
JAZZENZO, review on So What's Next: "De eindeloze opties aan effecten blijkt de groep niet dood te slaan maar juist aan te vullen. Het akoestische slotstuk waarin achtergrondzang klinkt over de door Huijbregts zorgvuldig opgebouwde basis van loops en xylofoon, is een fraai rustpunt gevuld met verrassingen die nieuwsgierig maakt naar hun opkomende album."
"It always thrills the soul a little (or a lot) to be presented with a brand new music that synthesizes aspects of music you've always loved, but presents it in a new way with a fresh energy. EvenSanne's music tickles all kinds of distant memories but the overall effect is not at all derivative - it is, in fact, simply delightful, equally appealing to head, heart, and gut. It makes one hopeful to know that there are musicians as gifted and generous as EvenSanne, doing what they do to contribute beauty and new sounds to the world."
- Mike Keneally
"Haunting melodies, and refreshing harmony, woven through beautifully crafted compositions, Eran Har Even & Sanne Huijbregts of EvenSanne are fearless adventurers of their exquisite musical world."
- Becca Stevens
"EvenSanne is simply a unique and magical duo. Two people able to make so much harmonic and sonic richness and with a truly creative and out-of-the-box approach. Plus, as a guitar player myself, Eran is one of the very best in my humble opinion - an inspiring and original voice on the instrument!"
- Gilad Hekselman
“En dan EvenSanne. In Nederland ken ik verder bijna geen zangeres met zo’n groot bereik en improvisatietalent. Ze heeft geweldige ideeën en absoluut een eigen geluid.”
- Tineke Postma
"My ears turned red, my heart was smiling. Sanne, who I've known since she was an incredibly talented musical teenager, grew into a wonderful and mature singer. Originality, taste, impeccable diction and pitch are rare treats; Sanne possesses them all. What a refreshing sound. The duo she formed with excellent guitarist Eran Har Even is a joy to listen to. You can't pin down in which box their music belongs - and that puts it right in the category that I love: the category of good MUSIC."
- Hein Van de Geyn
"Without any doubt and mercy this music takes you to the island of Sanne and Eran. Beautiful compositions, clear and well balanced. You feel the extraordinary dedication for the music and the sensitivity for the moment. Sparkling!"
