"Ms. Hatley is well gifted with a beautiful voice, to my way of thinking, her diction and enunciation are excellent and she is truly of high professional caliber. Hatley’s keen harmonic sense is highly apparent. I admire her ability to play around with melodies and in this connection her intonation is right on target. Her rendition of my “Shinny Stockings” is quite enjoyable in all these respects. I must say Bravo Baby!"
—Frank B. Foster, saxophonist/arranger/conductor, Count Basie Orchestra
“She does have a clarion voice made to nail standards”
—David Finkle, New York City Critic backstage.com NYC

"On I Remember, released last year, Hatley takes on 12 American Songbook and jazz standards. Hatley brings a knowing understanding to each one, elegantly updating songs like Young and Foolish, Shiny Stockings and Mountain Greenery. There's a warm maturity in Hatley's voice, and her vibrato and phrasing throughout are top-notch."
—Marc Myers jazzwax.com

“Wow! Trish hatley is great! She has done some great recording. I’m Impressed!
—Ross Barbour, Original Four Freshman
"The Thursday night FanJam (Four Freshmen Convention) was memorable for my first in-person listen to Trish Hatley. I knew from her CD that she was a terrific vocalist, but seeing her perform is to see a talent to be reckoned with! In addition to being a great singer, Trish has personality to spare. Of course, it also doesn't hurt that she's gorgeous as well."
—Phil Stout, Music Consultant, Music Choice, JazzRadio Berlin
"When I think of Trish, the first word that comes to mind is dazzling. Her ability to captivate the audience while inspiring the musicians has made Trish one of our most requested soloists."
—Dr. Paul Cobb, Conductor, Everett Symphony
