…The aptly surnamed Kate Paradise is a feast of pitch perfect singing with an inflection waaaay beyond her young years. Should one want to hear what it means to capture the singer's art with textbook precision and jazzed-up inflection, the chestnut Mean to Me here is a stellar case. If Paradise isn't signed immediately to a major label—well, there's just one more reason we critics are cynical.

Kate Paradise's debut, You Stepped Out of a Dream, is the real thing - a CD full of memorable, old-school jazz standards straight out of the Great American songbook.
More than just another pretty voice, Paradise has a stunning presence, and is an important addition to the musical landscape. Paradise is a special, rare musician. The sound is beautiful, the message is clear and that voice is radiant.

Her voice is sultry but classy; Kate Paradise doesn't feel the need to belt out a jazz standard just to get your attention. She understands the power of subtlety.
