“Playful, poppy bossa nova single “Are We In Love”—stamped with mainstream hit potential—has garnered awards and MTV play in Europe. With all-star imaging, production and savvy on all social networking sites, Sinem is a name that we will all know in short order.”
“New York-based Sinem Saniye’s critically acclaimed debut album, "When I Don’t Sleep.." displays a mature, well-developed degree of artistry, lavishly mixing the worlds of Pop and flavors from other cultures in a way that is undeniably great.”
"Intoxicating...captivating vocal style. One of the best albums in 2008!"
"Her artistic ability is enchanting."
"Sinem's sound is undeniably sweet."
"Sweet-voiced NYC singer Sinem Saniye mixes up laid-back pop and R&B beats with bossa and jazz flavors...which you can hear on her debut disc, When I Don’t Sleep."
"Sinem Saniye belongs to that very particular class of world/jazz/pop chanteuses who seem to flit from genre to genre all within a single phrase of any given song, but it's an established and inoffensive niche with broad appeal and pleasant to listen to."
“When I Don't Sleep.. crosses the lines of music classification and just makes you want to move with the beat and get lost in the outstanding vocals that Sinem brings to the world of music.”
“Demonstrating a mature, well-developed degree of artistry, the New York-based Saniye is unique, captivating and present. If the album’s title has anything to do with her creative process, a blessed case of insomnia just might be the secret to Saniye’s success. ”
