Thank you for trusting me in bringing your talents and creativity to my studio. It’s a beautiful compilation of great songwriting and heartfelt singing. You should be proud of it.

Claudia Koval is a fine local singer who does justice to the lyrics she interprets. Her voice is attractive and sultry (when it fits the mood of the song), and she swings at all tempos. Whether it's "Ain't Misbehavin', "Boulevard Of Broken Dreams," "The Shadow of Your Smile" or "Sentimental Journey," Clauda Koval comes up with something fresh to say through her phrasing.
With Heart and Soul is a happy surprise.

Running through a genuinely fearless set of tunes, the erstwhile Edmontonian impressed across the board at Darling's yesterday and had patrons like Sheila Jordan nodding along. Whatever Claudia Koval is picking up inLA should be distributed around town.

Claudia Koval has a smooth, creamy voice that lends itself well to singing standards - with delicate delivery featuring gentle jazz licks, precise enunciation and a slight quaver in her voice that adds to the emotional arc of each song.

I don’t get great recordings like this very often, so it was a pleasure to listen to, and Master. If you love Jazz, you will love Claudia Koval’s album – “With Heart and Soul”. A throwback to Jazz bands of the past complimented by Claudia’s silky, smooth vocals! Well done, I can’t wait for your next project!

Claudia Koval's solo cabaret debut in support of her CD, "With Heart and Soul," was a relaxed-paced, easygoing affair that showcased her fine voice and delightfully swinging style.
~ Les Traub, Cabaret Scenes Magazine
The strongest and most original performance on the album is "The Shadow of Your Smile". Koval's sultry voice is well-suited to the song's simple, melancholy melody and poetic lyrics. Koval also does a nice job with "The Windmills of Your Mind," lending a theatrical flair to the late 1960s tune.
