Critically-acclaimed singer songwriter Jan Hellriegel is back. The pioneer solo artist of the 90s has returned with a standout new album, All Grown Up – to the delight of fans and music critics alike.
The NZ Herald – Russell Baillie 5*
"This is one big, bold record. The much bigger impression is just how much fire there is to most everything here – Hellriegel’s singing and her words, the playing and the ambitious production ..not only Hellriegel’s best album yet but one the year’s best local releases.”
The Dominion Post – Simon Sweetman 5*
"Hearing this album was a joy on first listen. But living with it for a few weeks only hints at the continued joy to come – the return of an artist who took the time to be sure she has something to say. I think that’s pretty special.”
The Waikato Times – Steve Scott 5*
"All Grown up reveals Hellriegel back, stronger and even more creative than before. All Grown Up is a wondrous return. It is filled with melody, cadence and a powerful balance of textures that will continue to resonate endlessly.”
St Elsewhere – Graham Reid
"This is an album of great sonic breadth, boast an exceptional production to bring out the brittle country-rock edge of the band in places and gentle settings in others..it is big in every sense… she sounds more confident than she has ever been – she has every reason to be."
