Of “the rising cabaret star,” Stephen Holden of The New York Times writes: “The beauty of Ms. Sheehan’s voice is refreshingly unvarnished and devoid of circus tricks. Drawing from a deep well of feeling, she interprets lyrics from the point of view of someone who knows who she is and conveys empathy in a voice that glows with insight. Young, good-looking and very astute, Ms. Sheehan gives you hope.”
