Sylvie Perron / Press

" Exceptional singer"

Dr. Sheila Jordan - Letter of recommendation;. Canada Council for the Arts.

“... He is in love with Audrey, who has a past and a terribly unpleasant present. This role went to Sylvie Perron, a discovery who is worth her weight in gold. Ms Perron is a jazz singer by trade, and her mother tongue is not English ( though she is perfectly bilingual ). She is also a natural actor, and has the audiences rolling in the aisles. To make it better, she can sing, I mean, she can sing. "Little Shop of Horrors"”

The Montreal Gazette.

“... Sylvie Perron is a knockout as Audrey, with a clear brassy voice as diction perfect, as clearly focused and every bit as loud as the incomparable Ethel Mermen... "Little Shop of Horrors"”

The Montreal Gazette.

“Sylvie Perron is absolutely charismatic in her stage debut as Audrey, the blonde Betty Boop... "Little Shop of Horrors"”

The Montreal Gazette

“... Sylvie Perron, she's from Québec, is particularly strong, she has a wonderful range, and seems to live inside the songs, and I think she is the key to this production, a kind of edge and intimacy..." Jacques Brel is Alive and Well and Living in Paris"”

review by Robert Enright, recorded CBC Radio One / Host Maureen Pendergast

“Miss Perron struck me as a serious artist who is dedicated to her craft. She had a great rapport with the audience at Snug Harbor. Quintology is a dynamic band, and it speaks volumes that Sylvie Perron collaborated with them that evening. I hope Miss Perron will return to New Orleans often as it is always an honor to witness the blossoming of an artist who is so obviously committed to the demanding idiom of Jazz.”

Maryse Déjean - WWOZ FM. The Sounds of New Orleans, USA

“Our stage door is always open to Sylvie Perron. I can't recommend her highly enough”

Wesley Schmidt - Snug Harbor, French Quarter, Louisianna, New Orleans, USA

“Perron has a singing voice that is able to send shivers up the spine of even the most jaded.”

Roisin Horn. Free Press, Biloxi Mississippi, USA - Alegria, Cirque du Soleil

“Montreal Jazz singer Sylvie Perron belts out a gifted, gospel-inflected sound.”

Bev Wake. Victoria News, Victoria BC, Canada - Come Rain or Come Shine

“Montreal's Sylvie Perron is a show stealing flamboyant Jazz Singer, and her version of Stormy Weather is a brilliant piece of Jazz singing.”

Joseph Blake. Back Beat, Victoria BC, Canada - Come Rain or Come Shine

“Perron considered one of Montreal's best singing talents, has a powerful voice with enormous range, brilliantly capturing the sound of the Jazz era. The show's highlight is her version of Stormy Weather. Closing the first act, it silenced the full house which needed a few seconds to recover from the performance before erupting with applause and whistles”

Bev Wake-- Victoria News BC, Canada - Belfry brings back a winner

“With her throaty, octave-spanning voice and brassy self-assurance. Montreal Jazz singer Perron is a knock-out. Alternating between French and English, she breathes new life into Like a straw in the Wind and justifiably brings the house down with her shattering rendition of Stormy weather.”

Michael D. Reid-- Victoria News, BC, Canada - Smaller is better in Jazz Age revival

“Montreal Jazz singer Sylvie Perron's rendition of Stormy Weather did anything but bring a Belfry opening audience down. Perron turned the Come Rain or Come Shine crowd into shinny, happy people.”

Bev Wake-- Victoria News BC, Canada - Belfry Shines

“Perron, with uncanny Streisand-like phrasing and Piaf- like sentiment, was riveting in the sombre My Death and poetic in I Loved... in Jacques Brel is Alive and Well and Living in Paris.”
