"Vivian is a multi-talented songstress whose honest, convincing, and sensitive delivery makes her one of New England's favorite vocalists. Her sweet and soulful voice is an honest representation of who she is and how she feels the music. - Walter Beasley, Producer/Recording Artist
"Style, great intonation, clarity of voice, an understanding of the meaning of a lyric, with the ability to execute it...that is Vivian Male. She has what it takes!" - Ron Gill, Host of The Jazz Gallery, WGBH 89.7 FM Boston
"Brilliant!... Vivian's music takes me back to a special time. Her selection of songs is wonderful, and her vocal purity is enchanting. What a great journey!" - David Roderick, (former) NBC Producer
"Vivian Male's is a classic jazz voice. Her music is exciting and unpredictable: You don't always know where she's coming from or where she's going with a song. That combination of voice and musical adventure is tantalizing and rewarding. There is real star quality here." - Greg Moore, Editor of Denver Post, (formerly the Managing Editor of Boston Globe)
“Vivian’s styling represents a mature view of contemporary music today. She is one of only a few who have the command, history and style to bring us such an expressive performance. Since she sings contemporary music and jazz equally well, who knows what her next CD will bring us. But for now, I suggest you just sit back and enjoy!” – Eric Preusser
“As with the artist’s hand, Vivian is able to blend and extend her voice with smoothness and warmth. This ability, which is not evident in many of the popular vocalists of today, enhances the enchanting moods she sets. Her interpretation of the standards beckons the accompanying musicians to reach for the sky while remaining steady and coherent. The powerful, positive energy she exudes illuminates the music and draws the listener deep within her delivery.” – Rollins Ross, Music Producer
