Descriptions, Reviews, &c.

"Recorded in the early eighties here is already everything which seems to be idiosyncratic about Lauren Newton's singing: the wide range of tones, timbres and emotions, the ability to build up atmospheres, in which others can find themselves taking part, as well as the talent to integrate the voice within a framework of instrumentalists. First released under the title Timbre this CD issue from the original digital master tapes of 1982 includes "Early Piece", which was previously unreleased."- Bert Noglik. Edition of 3000. All compositions by Lauren Newton
