Baby et Lulu / Press

"Baby et Lulu, a couple of unabashed Francophile chanteuses, put on a show that leaves their audience feeling as refreshed as a bottle of sweet white wine rather than Cabaret’s standard night on the red."

"Arriving to the packed out Festival Theatre main stage, it was clear the très charismatic pairing of sexy songstress’ Abby Dobson and Lara Goodridge, AKA Baby et Lulu, have earned themselves a strong following of baguette-loving-baby-boomers"

"Chanteuses Abby Dobson and Lara Goodridge in slinky, tight frocks and showing some leg — as part of the 2013 Adelaide Cabaret Festival — was advertised as ‘a sassy romance in Paris’ and did not disappoint."

"They have a tongue-in-cheek rapport and their voices blend beautifully as they roll out hits...Dobson's French adaptation of her hit single Even When I'm Sleeping was a highlight and Goodridge plays a mean fiddle."

"It is impossible not to be charmed by the hypnotic voices of Baby and Lulu"

“There’s a joie de vivre to this album of songs French, American and Australian ... sung in French and often in unison or harmony. Amid smart arrangements that aren’t afraid to be amused at the conventions, there are dramatic chansons of various types (with full throaty vibrato in Padam Padam), 1940’s swing (Charles Aznavour’s Je Suis Amoureux), jaunty jazz (Cole Porter’s delightful C’est Magnifique) and cocktail hour (Les Baisers). C’est tres bon. ”

Bernard Zuel - Sydney Morning Herald

"With blithe spirit, old material is made new, yet again" – Alistair Jones, The Australian 3/12 Star Review

“Briana Everett catches up with a unique Australian duo with a very French repertoire.”

“What's the French for "such delightful talented gorgeous ladies"? ... "Baby Et Lulu"”

"Dobson and Goodridge had the seated audience eating out of the palms of their hands... [and] pranced off stage to the sounds of a standing ovation" (Live Review)

““Harmonising is one of the most beautiful and freeing things you can do as a singer,” (Interview with Abby Dobson)”

“Dobson & Goodridge's vocals entwine; two lovesick songbirds in a melancholic pas de deux. Superb....   Dobson's husky, yet delicate, quivering vocals put one immediately in mind of berets, checkerboard cafe chairs and long-legged passers-by. Goodridge's assertive, ever-adaptable and versatile violin playing, which has a clarity that matches her singing.”
