Anandi continues to impress as a singer to be recognized and admired.” - George Fendel

Get ready, 'cause there's a lot to like about Anandi's new recording. First and foremost, she's a Portland-based, no nonsense, real deal jazz singer. No show biz shtick here. Just straight forward, thoroughly honest jazz chops! Anandi supplies...a swinging feel for all of her material. What a delight this is!" George Fendel, Jazzscene”
Chalk up another polished singer here in Puddle City! Anandi's debut jazz CD is a lesson in subtlety and understatement, traits I happen to greatly admire in singers. That she phrases with a natural jazz sense doesn't hurt either...I'm confident we'll be seeing more of Anandi in Portland area venues. Her impressive first outing is sure to raise some eyebrows in our neck of the woods." -George Fendel, Jazzscene”
“Anandi has a knack for beautiful phrasing in her singing. Her overall warmth and genuine affinity for the great jazz standards makes her an instant hit with audiences.” -Tom Grant”

Anandi has something to say" -Steve Christofferson”
“Anandi Gefroh is a fresh, energetic singer working her way into the Portland music scene, singing in English, Spanish and Portuguese. It has been my pleasure to accompany her many times.” -Gordon Lee”
“With a versatile voice, both smoky and sweet, Anandi ("Forever Days," Lake Lady Music), manages to sound as brightly polished as a new penny while keeping her soul intact. Shades of Rickie Lee Jones, Sheryl Crow and other righteous ladies peek through, but it would appear Anandi has her own self wired tight. ...” -May 2003”

“Consider Anandi…Her music sounds like your average coffee-shop folk stuff, right? Wrong.” June, 2002” - Stan Hall

— The Oregonian

“So many female singer-songwriters name Joni Mitchell as an influence…Anandi is one of the few with enough melodic flair to live up to the comparison. Anandi’s debut recording, Melody of Question, a five-song EP, is a sophisticated genre-jumping effort. It’s dipped in modern jazz, emotionally available, open to the senses, ruminative about love…Anandi’s lyrical, lush yet uncluttered sound seems a throw-back to more melodic times…” March 1999” - Daniel Gewertz

...weaves together confessional pop ballads, down and dirty rock & roll, laid back Americana-blues and traditional soul. Her sweet vocals and easygoing melodies often call to mind Rickie Lee Jones, an early influence of Anandi's, and her personal verses run the gamut from tender to steamy.” May 2003” - Heather Johnson

Anandi impressed a great many reviewers with her last release (The Mirror)...and for good reason. That album established this young lady as a real contender in the world of soul-infected pop. Forever Days picks up where The Mirror left off...and offers even more substantive proof of Anandi's impressive capabilities. Playing the game her own way...without using gimmicks...and without an outrageous image...Anandi manages to captivate and entertain based purely on her own talents (as well as the assistance of Brad Craig on various instruments, Genji Siraisi on drums. and guest artists Dennis Martin, Steve Mayone, and Karla Schiemann). Anandi's music sounds like the more soulful side of Kate Bush...or the more restrained side of Joan Armatrading. But make no mistake, this lady's voice is purely her own...and what a voice she has (!). Anandi delivers the twelve tunes on Forever Days with compassion, sincerity, and true style. Our favorite cuts are "Forever Days," "Know Better," "Always a Child," and "All In It's Own Time." A wonderfully satisfying album. (Rating: 5+) June 2003”
