Darlene is a most extraordinary vocal talent.  The voice is true and pure and has the widest possible range of styles at its command.  She also has the heart to be able to put real meaning into a song and bring it to life...Beyond her immense talent, she is totally professional and completely reliable, two rather rare and invaluable qualities.

New Orleans, LA 2017 Review of "Color Me Home"

Although we've never met until recently . . . I've known of your rep as one of the best singers in the biz but never had a chance to hear you solo until I popped in your Kaleidoscope demo and sampled a bunch of tracks.  The range, not only in notation but styles, is amazing . . . . young composers need to know that talents like you exist and can make their job easier and their music sound better.
