NEW album"Bird Language" out now!
"There is an aura of mystique to Smirnova's Bird Language, a stunning blend of Baltic folklore, jazz, pop, and rock, infused with nature- themed sounds. The album was brought to life through the ethereal sound of Lithuanian kanklės, Smirnova's virtuosic, sultry signature vocals, and mimicked bird shrieks, interpolated with jazz piano-driven solos, and sinuous, enticing arrangements."
"All About Jazz"
"Smirnova’s music has a timeless aspect while able to reference a wide range of modes of expression; and her own voice, too, has that otherworldly quality."
- "Fanfare Magazine"
"I am especially encouraged by the Eastern European spin she brings to the genre... and belting a few Baltic folklore chants along the way. She provides some unique flavoring to jazz and chamber music."
- Atwood Magazine
"Mood-altering jazz...[combines] Baltic folklore, theatrical and pop-influenced vocals, and chamber music into a unique sound all her own."
