“Sarah Sharp, who serves as the primary Jitterbug Vipers songwriter, sweetly sails through a selection of originals in the tradition with seductive nonchalance but also digs down deep for an exquisite rendition of "Billie's Blues."”
"..this raucous quartet lives and dies on the sultry, Billie Holiday-esque allure of frontwoman Sarah Sharp.."
““When you’re high, there’s nothing else to do but watch your very next breath make its way through the sky,” melts Sarah Sharp in a tranquil vocal haze on “When You’re High,” lulling an ephemerality that seeps through the entirety of Phoebe’s Dream”
"These vipers have a new album out, Phoebe’s Dream, which sets Sarah Sharp’s sultry, period-perfect vocals floating over the slinky groove of bassist Francie Meaux Jeaux and nimble drummer Masumi Jones, guitar monster Slim Richey channeling a century’s worth of classic jazz and swing tradition with a deviously eclectic, bristling attack that’s all his own."
“Sarah Sharp’s soft spoken singing style and quiet instrumentations offer a living room, fireside closeness that keeps her away from the lounge-singer stereotypes of similarly jazz-influenced performers.”
“ “her intricate songs and voice are ever so slowly taking over the world.””
“Sarah Sharp is one part Tina Fey, one part Aimee Mann. Both Sharp and Fey thrive in a male-dominated world, write brilliantly and would be dead ringers for each other with a quick dye job.”
““ a richly orchestrated and dynamically produced album of enormous depth and substance"”
