"Serious guitar chops"

The bluesy folk-rock tunes, burnished croon (and) serious guitar chops of Massachusetts singer Natalia Zukerman demand your attention. - Time Out New York

"Pure singing voice"

Hard work and long hours on the road are paying off for slide guitarist/singer Natalia Zukerman. Playing close to 200 solo shows a year is a good way to expand an audience, but possessing a playing style and singing voice as pure as Zukerman's sure doesn't hurt either. - Santa Cruz Sentinel

"Switch from scat to swoon"

Natalia Zukerman, comes from a family of noted classical musicians (her mother, Eugenia, is a flutist; her father, Pinchas, is a violinist; and her sister, Arianna, is an opera singer), but she has chosen to forsake grand performance halls for a dusty resophonic slide guitar in small clubs. She has nimble fingers capable of picking upward of thirty notes per measure, and when she sings she can switch from scat to swoon in the course of a glissando. - The New Yorker

"A gem"

I knew from the first track that this was a gem. On first listen, I didn't even take notes. I just sat back and let Zukerman's spunky, dreamy, jazzy rock jam take over my apartment. The musicians scatted, they strummed, they broke into wild bluegrass interludes. I've never had houseguests like these. I think the standup bass player left the smoldering remains of a cigarette in one of my coffee mugs. -

"If you're a fan of Madeleine Peyroux, Bonnie Raitt or even Amy Winehouse"

Smokey-voiced songstress wisely mixes the rootsy styles on her fresh and fine Willy Porter-produced "Brand New Frame" album - from torch blues to country swing - to broaden reach and constituency. If you're a fan of Madeleine Peyroux, Bonnie Raitt or even Amy Winehouse, you'll find stuff to connect with here. - Philadelphia Daily News

"delicate perfection"

Zukerman released Brand New Frame in May, and it's a warm collection of mild folk rock, pitched somewhere between the delicate perfection of Jenny Lewis and the visceral soul of Joan Osborne. - River Cities' Reader



Natalia Zukerman is nothing if not versatile. In addition to performing her own shows of original music, over the years Zukerman has played lap steel, bass and/or guitar alongside Janis Ian, Susan Werner and Willy Porter, toured collaboratively with fellow artists Garrison Starr, Louise Taylor, Erin McKeown, Sam Baker and John Fullbright, with her art and music project comrade AG(Adrianne Gonzlez), with percussionist and vocalist Mona Tavakoli (Jason Mraz, Raining Jane) and with her annual holiday group Winterbloom (Antje Duvekot, Anne Heaton, Meg Hutchinson). Her collaborative nature was captured on her critically acclaimed double live album Gypsies & Clowns that was recorded in Evaston, IL in September of 2012. She is currently at work on her seventh solo record, to be released in 2014 on Weasel Records.
