“ALBUM OF THE WEEK! http://bnovamusic.com/let-your-love-rise/ The song that shares the title of this EP is an original song and Fabiana’s performance is a practice in vocal teasing. She manages to seduce the audience while still maintaining her tempered style of singing that will be familiar to fans and irresistible to newcomers. Her voice is alluring but never patronizing and the lyrics on the track compliment this quite well. The background to this is an elegant arrangement of guitar licks sprinkled with piano riffs. The final result is a display that balances playfulness and restrain; the perfect tease….”

"Let Your Love Rise", the 4th release from this sultry voiced Brazilian vocalist/songwriter, is a bright, soulful body of work. Her extraordinary lush voice is well suited to the material, each track impeccably produced and performed. Her band is proficient in the Brazilian musical language, never failing to translate it into every song with ease making this cd a pleasant departure from the ordinary. The title track is an irresistibly sublime Baião that reminds us of what is it to feel joy and a testament to her ongoing mission to enjoy life and make the most of every moment. She has that rare ability to transform cover songs so that they fit seamlessly into her repertoire; James Brown's, " I Feel Good", becomes a sultry ballad and Carole King's, "Jazzman", a haunting, poignant Bossa Nova, the result is that you experience these songs in a refreshing new way. This is a solid effort, well worth listening! Sharon Stevens Raízes Brazilian Radio,91.3 FM KBCS KBCS.FM

“Today I want to thank you AUSTRALIA! Melbourne's Best Mix of Smooth Jazz/Northwest FM 98.9 Dj Paul Toothpicks Coory for sending me this awesome review about my upcoming EP "Let Your Love Rise" .. We are setting an interview via phone soon! I will keep you posted! Mais uma resenha da AUSTRALIA!! Australia: "Let your Love Rise" The beautifully talented Brazilian Vocalist/Songwriter has completed her 4th release cd. The powerful title track “Let your Love Rise” has you again brought into the Brazilian vocalist’s journey of freedom and life expression. Fabiana's voice is beautifully tainted lush. The band’s sounds are the exact collaboration that one expects of Fabiana Passoni and her team. Always an exciting adventure and journey with her music, including Carole King’s classic tune “Jazzman” from 74'.  Her own delivery of James Brown’s “I Feel Good” keeps you in love with her style.”

“Los Angeles (February 2012) – International latin jazz artist Fabiana Passoni showcases spirit and heart with a comeback release following a three-year battle with breast cancer. Marking her debut single in English, “Lovin’ You” is a remake of the Billboard Hot 100 #1 1975 hit by Minnie Riperton. Using a samba rhythm and her velvety voice, Fabiana makes this version of “Lovin’ You” distinctly her own. Infusing a great deal of percussion is a trademark sound of Fabiana’s musical style. With a strong desire of her own and multiple requests by her American fans to add more English songs to her performances, Kleber Jorge, Fabiana’s renowned guitarist, suggested “Lovin’ You” as the first song. Working closely with her band members, the song evolved into a light samba during the first rehearsal. The single is now available for download on www.iTunes.com, www.CDBaby.com and www.amazon.com.”

“This is only Fabiana Passoni’s second solo album, but to her it's a new beginning. After her 2007 debut É Minha Vez (It’s My Turn) a lot happened in Fabiana's life. A cancer survivor, Fabiana knows what living is, and in Naturalmente Brasil she sings about "getting back up again and fighting for life and living happily." Naturalmente Brasil is a journey of Fabiana's comeback..”

“Naturalmente Brazil" is a genuine meaningful hymn to life performed by a singer whose vocal qualities are backed by an artistic sincerity that reaches to your heart from the first song.”
