“It’s Raining in Here es una apuesta disonante, que nos saca de lugar y nos sumerge a un mosaico de experiencias y sonidos del que no sabemos cómo regresar. Su dinamismo, el diálogo entre elementos y los conflictos que presenta nos abstraen y sumen al interior de ellos. Tanto así, que después de escucharla, nos es imposible saber si está lloviendo adentro o afuera. Abajo está el play.”

“Uma coisa que podemos ter como certa, é que já fazia muito tempo que aparecia uma artista que pudesse fazer frente a nomes como Loreena Mckennitt ou Enya.”

“Buscando fazer algo autêntico e real, ela escreveu cada uma das músicas ao longo dos últimos anos e transformou seu coração e alma em um magnífico trabalho onde pedaços da artista podem estar presentes tanto de maneira lírica, quanto no toque emocionl de instrumentos e elementos eletrônicos.”

“La fusión de los elementos electrónicos con los acústicos y la honestidad de su voz lo hacen un proyecto imperdible.”

“With a little help from her friends, she's collaborated to create an art pop album that's bound to blow you away. Crystal's ethereal falsetto is an absolute benchmark, a focal point for the album to steer itself around.”

“You blend vocals with electronics in a very interesting way. What comes first in your music? Lyrics or music? Tell us a few things about your creative process. The electronic part of the vocals was a lot of fun- it’s mostly me singing through a guitar wave pedal. The first time I tried it out, drummer Guy Paz turned the dial on the pedal while I improvised background vocals over some of the songs. Andrew Forman added on some reverb and sounds during his mixing process. As for my writing process, I think everything stems from improvisation.”

“During the course of the concert, Lettau also introduced her student and protégé, 21-year-old singer and songwriter Crystal Rose Speros. The Filipino-American artist from Ocean Beach, California has known Lettau since she was 12 and was mentored by her in jazz, R&B and Brazilian music genres. She performed soulful renditions of Roberta Flack’s “Feel Like Makin’ Love” and Michael Jackson’s “I Cant’ Help It” and sang a cover of “Someone To Watch Over Me” with Lettau.”

“With her golden locks and Olivia Wilde cheekbones, Crystal Rose resembles Hollywood starlets of the 1940’s. But don’t be fooled by her charming attitude and daydreamer qualities. As an ambitious singer-songwriter, she hopes to inspire souls, both old and young, with her infectious lyrics.”
