What They Are Saying

She has a feline sense of assurance onstage and a voice full of humor.
The Studio
She swings lightly from come-hither cabaret diva to serious pop interpreter to playful entertainer, indulging in liberating vocalese.
The Atlanta Journal Constitution
Gwen is one of those ‘chanteuses.’ That means she can really sing and attracts the best players in town to back her up.
The Star Bar, Atlanta
Imagine if Tina Turner and Cassandra Wilson somehow combined genetic material… Gwen Hughes is an exciting talent.
Wildy's World
Lively originals sit alongside cool covers, showcasing the expressive, emotive voice that has made Hughes a fan favorite all these years.
Review of Instead of Light, Georgia Music Magazine
Our seven year old daughter walks around the house singing Gwen’s songs with her iPod. She does not have the amazing range and energy that Gwen brings to her music, but it shows that kids really dig the Warbler.
Review of Big Kids Jazz, iTunes
Reader’s Pick, Best Jazz Artist
Creative Loafing
A slick sophisticated sound aimed squarely at grownups.
Review of Dancing in the Moonlight, Georgia Music Magazine
Gwen is a true find, intelligent, sexy, sad, sultry, and she smiles all the way through it.
Review of Instead of Light, iTunes
Whether she’s mimicking a trombone player with her scat singing or belting out blues or pop, Hughes’s music pours out of her voice and body, sometimes in such contortions that she looks and sounds like a possessed Janis Joplin. But there’s no way to pigeonhole her style, as she clearly is influenced by a disparate group of rock, soul, gospel and jazz musicians.
