"A tricky band to pigeon hole...with lovely vocals and...a combustible merging of genres." Paul Whalley - Get ready to Rock


Between the Bridges, the third release by this unique Brooklyn act, is what you might call a happy surprise. Focusing on the Maggie Reilly/Rikki Lee Jones vox and areodetic songwriting of K. Page, Sleepwalker’s Parade bring sprinklings of classy uptown neo-jazz licks and rhythms to the indie/alt table. Page likes to set you up slow with a smoky back-in-the-alley waltz or shuffle, and then sneak up after a verse or two with the gloves off.
This approach works effectively on “Places People Stay” which leaps without warning into a reggae bounce, complete with a snarling Harvey Valdes guitar solo. “Simple Song” commences with Josh Meyers’ masterful walking bass. “Media Monster” gradually becomes downright cathartic, with the band howling and Page literally screaming her lyrics, cleverly followed by the impressionistic title track that merely melts into oblivion in a true surrealist coup.
The gritty lyrical ironies born of Page’s street-smart urban sensibility are icing on the cake. It’s great to hear some young musicians who have the bullocks to channel both aggression and sensitivity into musically satisfying statements. – JOHN PATRICK - Progression Magazine


"Stuart weaves an eerie vocalise" - Village Voice


She has a haunting voice that seems simultaneously fragile and menacing...you can’t help being ensnared because Page’s voice lures you like a siren... I would suggest giving them a serious listen: repeatedly.

Tucked away in some seedy nightclub would be the avant garde vocal jazz group led by K. Page and her glorious spectacle of a voice. That group masterfully weaves carpeted improv jazz with circuitry bent on experimental music. The lyrics spoken by the vocals are almost spectral and pseudo street spoken word. Very different but something that just must be explored with gusto.

- J-Sin - Smother.net


Formed in 2002 by K. Page and comprising a myriad of musicians the Sleepwalkers Parade have set out to make a very ambitious album. It flits playfully between jazz and more rocky moments, Page’s vocals can be either sweet or take on an other wordly quality depending on the song.

-Kev - The beat surrender


Ms. Page's Brooklyn group promises a break from robotic indie rock. Page's exictable banshee vocals, part Peggy Lee and part The Nun's Jennifer Miro, are provocative and the backup music is an amalgam of classic and avant garde jazz, art new music, and rock...individualistic and unusual.

K. Page and Sleepwalker's Parade's Green City is an album that you might imagine would be worn out on an iPod alongside those of Billie Holiday or Johnny Cash, dare I say, Le Tigre? K. Page's sooty vocals smolder beside subdued electric riffs and a calculated beat...it has that sound that seems almost "imperfect," which ironically makes it a success.

- The Owl Magazine


To me, K. Page and Sleepwalker’s Parade can be compared to a fusion of Imogen Heap, Bjork, and Canada’s own Leslie Feist.

This album is well composed, from K. Page’s vocals to the smooth instrumentals. If there is any more room for these kinds of bands in the industry, I really hope this one becomes the next big thing. I see a lot of potential in these guys with their first album. This is a whole new mood.

Through a thick fog of smoke in a musty NYC dive, you’ll find K. Page and the Sleepwalker’s Parade wailing neo-beatnik verse over swinging guitar, bass, and drums. At least, that’s the image Green City evokes.

The album shines in its reshaping of Patti Smith-style poetics: Green City blends experimental jazz, rock, and classical influences behind Page’s sometimes sweet, sometimes dark, but always passionate, crooning.
