Dandelions is the third album from singer songwriter, Kaz Simmons.
It features all original songs, ranging from one of the first she ever wrote, to a song inspired by a trip to Peru. An intimate, autobiographical insight into her world where she fuses the Spanish classical guitar music of her youth as well as Brazilian, pop and jazz to create quirky twists and turns.
“A very fine new album” - Jamie Cullum, BBC Radio 2
“This truly was a performance of high class and exquisite variation, while Kaz’s voice is pure, natural and seemingly effortless in its beauty and robustness. At the launch of this, her third album and the second to be released under her own label, it is a wonder that this gem remains still relatively hidden” – The London Word
“Somehow adept at handcuffing the listener so that one song is not
enough…Simmons punctuates the album with grace and simplicity, while being craftily intricate”- R2 Rock’n’ Reel Magazine
“Combining a voice of crystalline purity, a neat lyrical touch, some superb backing musicians and a few lushly romantic arrangements, Kaz Simmons’ Dandelions has a gorgeous heart and a few twists and turns that surprise, delight and occasionally mystify by turn” – All About Jazz
“Sympathetic souls will appreciate her gentle candour and sincere ingenuousness, and the album as a whole certainly provides a welcome antidote to the macho posturing of much contemporary pop, male and female” – LondonJazz
“Delicate and subtle, her voice has a more interesting edge that gives the disc a deliciously quirky edge and the autobiographical nature of the tracks here give the music a real heart” – The Digital Fix
