Media Quotes

"With a voice that floats effortlessly between powerful and delicate, sensual and strong, longing and assertive, Lana Crowster uses her music to paint a picture of a woman coming into her own. Influenced by R&B, soul and hip-hop – all against a rich backdrop of jazz – Lana's songs are her commentary on love and life, producing a sound that is as emotionally and musically compelling as the stories she tells. Songs and inspirations mix on stage with Lana's big, bold and distinctive personality for a reaction that's beyond chemical, beyond physical and beyond emotional – one that's pure magic, and an experience not to be missed.”  - Nkosiyati Khumalo - Editor, GQ Magazine SA
