‘Really lovely…great nuances in the vocal…great arrangements too of course’
Clare Teal – Jazz singer and broadcaster
"The vocal crown of the evening must go to Isobel Gathercole, who appeared right at the end for a powerful rendition of Luck Be A Lady originally arranged for Barbara Streisand. This was one of the loudest, densest charts of the night, but Gathercole held her own against the massed forces, with a bold stage and vocal presence."
London Jazz News
"Ms Gathercole proves to be a distinctive and confident vocalist, equally adept at a slow ballad or a swinger....She has style, timing and above all, a distinctive voice which is all her own. There are occasional shades of Billie Holiday but that can't be bad, can it?"
Gerry Stonestreet - In Tune International Magazine
"A huge thank you to Isobel Gathercole's band for the fabulous music last night! We have had so much feedback from those who attended saying how much they loved the event and in particular, the music. They looked great, sounded great and helped to create the most perfect atmosphere!"

"Isobel Gathercole has performed with the National Youth Jazz Orchestra and has been an absolute asset to the group. She has performed with confidence and aplomb on all occasions. Isobel has helped to give NYJO an extra edge in its presentation and her communication skills and ability to put an audience at ease show all the hallmarks of a young star in the making. To conclude, Isobel is an excellent performer, I have no hesitation endorsing her talent to any potential employer/promoter."
