Nancy Wilson on Vivian Sessoms:

"She has her own distinctive style and sound and her interpretation of a song is truly unique. She must be heard in a live setting to be wholly appreciated".

Jessica Poli - Feinsteins at Loews Regency

"It is always such a fantastic surprise when a new artist comes to Feinstein's and just blows the roof off with their talent".
