"OLYA was bound to make her own imprint on anything she would've been tackling following the release of 'Carefully' back in 2010. 2013's "Crash and Burn" is exemplar of that, acting as a great showcase of her ability to write and perform infectious hooks and infallible harmonies with an intrinsically sultry, exceptionally gorgeous tone to boot."
"When the opening strains of “Independ-a-nt” begin to play and I hear Olya’s voice I think maybe Astrid Gilberto filtered through Moscow instead of Brazil."
"...we have a showcase of a young talented singer... One who definitely has the chops to make some good music. Russian or American, for that matter."
"[carefully]—her debut album that is comprised of “six different stories, six different characters” through six-tracks of her deep, sultry vocals nicely laid over backing jazz and ethnic melodies."
