“The performers are all able interpreters of the difficult material; particularly...Tamra Hayden, brooding and big voiced as she brazenly pushes the tremulous melodrama up to the breaking point (and at times deliciously spilling over). ”
“Tamra has "a voice guaranteed to reheat your coffee, especially when she hits the higher registers"”
“Tamra Hayden, is someone to watch, delivering two of Brel’s most sentimental songs in English: “Sons of …” (“Fils de….”), with its reminder that, “All were children like your own,” and “Old Folks” (“Les vieux”). Each was presented as distinctly and sharply as a snapshot.”

“I enjoy Tamra immensely, whether singing her own songs or those of others. Her range is remarkable, from Rock and Folk, to Broadway and Ballads. Her feminine voice is at once touching yet powerful. Not to be missed, wherever and whenever she is singing! ”
“Tamra Hayden's most recent release "I Believe In The Fire", is a marvel. A voice of stunning clarity, yet burnished, reminiscent of Linda Ronstadt. Rock, blues and more; whether covering a standard or performing her own compositions, each song is delivered fresh. Every phrase, each lyric is infused with heartfelt experience. Overall, an emotionally rich, thoughtful experience. I loved it! ”
“Hayden soared on Don't Cry for Me Argentina from Evita ... and the couple's romantic duet on All I Ask of You literally brought the crowd to its feet — and not just to get an early jump on the valet. ”

“...Hayden's voice is so wonderful... ”
“...Hayden gives an exquisite performance... ”
“...Hayden has a honeyed voice... ”
