"Progression Magazine gives Gisele's music the thumbs up"

“Australia-based vocalist/violinist Gisele Scales has been gaining quite a bit of attention for her recordings, which combine dance music beats with violin and even “green” themes. Unusual to be sure, as are the vocals sung/spoken in English, French, Italian and German. If this all sounds quite creative and European more than Australian, you’re right.
The clever synth programming and never-let-up house beats practically drag you forcibly to your feet and demand you boogie your ass off………………….
Scales’ breathy vocals are well suited for this material and her violin technique is excellent.
Scales is a founding member of the Canberra Youth Orchestra, so she obviously has a strong musical background. This disc hints at a strong future of combining techno with the more innovative musicality of prog….and there’s something undeniably catchy about songs like “Nature Love.” One can definitely see Scales’ music catching on.” -- Jim Cirile

"Skope Magazine - rave review"

" The other outlier is the multi-talented Gisele Scales from Sydney, Australia. A talented electronic violinist and vocalist, Gisele has been invading dance music circles all over the world. Her recent CD, 2 Think, gives dance music enthusiasts everything they could want: electronica, techno, rock, tango, world music, and breakbeat rhythms overlaid with her seductive pop vocals. But this isn’t just music for your party. Gisele’s “Green” is a statement about global warming and other eco-disasters. Both her “Can U Love 1 Another” with its gypsy violin and her “Armonia,” a world music-rich track, speak to global peace. Gisele Scales is definitely on the rise." - Janie Franz, Skope Magazine - Skope Magazine
