"Someone in my position hears alot of material; most of it well-intended and sincere. When I first encountered Brenda Warren's composition and her performances, however, I was simply astounded. I was listening to an utterly unique artistic voice and a pianist with stunning compositional talent and technique to match. Her work is deeply heartfelt and stunningly emotional....a glimpse into her artistic soul. It's a good and joyous day when I get to experience finding such a rare artist and I look forward very much to working with Brenda on her recording in November of this year".

"Here's a beautiful gem of a recording, Brenda Warren's AS YEARS GO BY is touching and evocative, many of its tracks laced with a tender melancholy or somber reflection, yet never to the point that the inherent charm and beauty of the music is lost amidst too much dread and sorrow. The best single word to describe this album would be intimate. Somehow, Warren found a way, no matter what the overall melody, mood or tempo of the piece, to impart a sense that she is giving us a glimpse inside her life, as played on the piano."
AS YEARS GO BY is an intensely moving exploration of the depths of the soul. Deeply emotional and introspective, one senses the healing process of fully expressing oneself is taking place as we listen, healing our own wounds as we go."
"Brenda's music takes influence from the heart, the elements of the earth, Erik Satie and Joni Mitchell. Her music is thought doleful and thought provoking. Just the way I like it.".

"As years go by" is an album that transpires sensitivity from all its pores. The music on the whole is melodic, soft and with clear romantic traits."
