–  “We celebrate the changing face of Australian music with Brazilian-born, Perth based singer Juliana’s excellent, Bossa Nova-centred album.” – ABC Radio National – Daily Planet – Lucky Oceans.
 
– “The toast of the Perth Jazz Scene. The release of Bossa Nova Baby has elevated her above a mere covers singer or bossa specialist.

– “It’s bossa that plays soccer with Jazz – as it has since the 60’s – and scoring a goal.  –  O GLOBO– Brazil– Antonio
Carlos Miguel – Music critic  and judge member of the “Latin Grammy Award”.
