"Legere is an expressive and versatile singer whose voice ranges from a dark and earthy alto to a gorgeous dazzling high soprano.She combines intelligent lyrics and a fusion of French musette, Cajun, pop, rock, folk and jazz into a "roots alternative" stew. - Washington Post

"Des influences de la chanson française des années 1920 et 1930, style musette, et le théâtre musical colorent sa musique qui conjugue la pop, le classique, le folk, le rock, le blues et le Cajun. Elle offre des prestations théâtrales où elle joue plusieurs instruments. Sur scène, elle peint aussi en direct." - Sylvie Mousseau, Acadie Nouvelle

"New York-based multi-media performer Phoebe Legere is a true Renaissance performer. She does music, film, and art, acts, dances and composes, makes videos and arranges for symphonies. She's performed at Carnegie Hall and the Lincoln Centre, toured with Bowie, been featured on CBS Sunday Morning, PBS, and in The New York Times, starred in an HBO production, and created The Shamancycle, a 15 person monster eagle vehicle that runs on alternative energy." - Bob Morsereau, CBC

The New York Times
"Legere plays the piano with enormous authority in a style that encompasses Chopin, blues, ragtime, bebop and beyond, and she brings to her vocal delivery a four octave range, and an extraordinary palette of tonal color and meticulous phrasing."

"A charismatic showman who works the audience with the razor edged skill of a veteran comic poking, teasing, and caressing it with clever turns of phrase both musical and verbal...She plays the piano with enormous authority in a style that encompasses Chopin, blues, ragtime, bebop and beyond, and she brings to her vocal delivery a four and a half octave range, and an extraordinary palette of tonal color and
meticulous phrasing."



Roman K., Billboard
"PHOEBE LEGERE is the female Frank Zappa..."



New York Post
"Gorgeous, blonde bombshell with a dynamite body, a magnificent voice, a wild sense of humor...(She is) an extremely intelligent Vassar graduate who can play four or five instruments and challenge every premise you might have about her as she zips through her set - her song selections are impeccably chosen.  (She has) a dazzling voice - a superb singer miles above most of the jazz stars of today ...a comic mind...She turns excess and extravagance into an art form and anchors it with stunning simplicity. "



Dimitri M., Hits Magazine
"Phoebe Legere is one of the most, inspired and talented creative-supernovas on the planet...One of those rare luminous souls... beautiful, wickedly funny, anointed with wisdom, and her music possesses Native American mystical and healing qualities. Like Billie Holiday or Jimi Hendrix or Miles Davis or Sun Ra..."  



Interview Magazine
"A genius."



Provincetown Magazine
"Often copied, never equaled, Phoebe Legere is a transmedia virtuoso force who zaps the listener into a new reality. Legere personifies the divine feminine; her multi-octave voice has been compared to Edith Piaf, Aretha Franklin and Maria Callas...Legere is a nuclear, spinning, multi-dimensional, creative force NOT TO BE MISSED."



Patrick C., Theaterlife.com
