"She’s a rich, youthful blend of indie originality and easy popularity,
with a magnetic voice and an intuitively fluid lyricism that captures
the gothic majesty of a thousand ancient churches, headed light years
into galactic reaches. Gauzy, cavernous, yet pure, able to pierce the
heart of the story, the pulse of a catchy beat, the turns and spins of a
melody ramp." -AXS.com (see more)
"Singer/songwriter Whitney Lyman can bring out the lyrical hook in any rough track, with a sound that’s a cross between nostalgia and visionary." -The Examiner.com
"With her single, “Laser Beam”, Lyman just may have invented a new musical style: dream pop." -AXS
"Whitney Lyman‘s elegant voice lends itself well to such a beautiful song 'Laser Beam.'" -Northwest Music Scene (see more
"Whitney Lyman... provided a slew of riches during her time onstage — gorgeous songs that combined the rhythmic adventure of her band Pollens with shoegazing languidness, an airily beautiful singing voice, and a game group of backing musicians behind her. A few more gigs at center stage, and she should be ready for world conquest." -The Sun Break
"More genre-flauting meta-music from Seattle's most forward-looking rockstar-shaman. "Mind Matter" is more immediately fun than Vox Mod's usual jams, a bouncy electro-pop nugget featuring lush vocals from Whitney Lyman. It'd be all over mainstream FM were there any justice in the world." -Jonathan Zwickel, City Arts Magazine
"All of the songs on the self-titled album [Supersonic Parachute,] are nicely arranged pop songs with R&B leanings that use Lyman’s voice particularly well, but it’s the fourth song, “Love is a Spark” that has me hitting replay over and over again..It has exactly what I look for in a great pop song: effervescent harmonies, a big, smart, catchy-as-hell chorus, a nicely constructed bridge and a sexiness that is both underlying and overt." -Chris Burlingame, The Sun Break
"Pacific Northwest critics took notice, as did a growing group of fans.
Transfixed by her voice, which seemed to go on forever, often on just
one note, told a whirlwind of stories through inflection, phrasing and
timbre. Her debut album incorporated as much of the world as she could
muster, from Indonesia’s Gamelan bells and drums to a big band’s worth
of sectionals." -Carol Banks Weber AXS.com (see more)
