“I listened to all of your album (Dancing on the Wind) and it is absolutely beautiful in every way. Beautiful compositions, excellent playing and an excellent recording.” ~ David Hicken, Pianist/Composer/Author
"Soul Whispers is the debut recording by pianist Shoshana Michel. She has arranged and performed a beautiful collection of twelve soothing Jewish melodies for solo piano. Elegantly and soulfully performed, the music is relaxing and spiritually uplifting whether or not you are of the Jewish faith or culture. Shoshana Michel’s arrangements are full and rich, but they are not overly embellished or flashy, allowing the haunting melodies to stand on their own and speak their messages without a lot of fanfare. Her arrangements have a contemporary sound while honoring the deep and ancient traditions of the music. If you enjoy lovely spiritual solo piano music, I’m quite sure you’ll thoroughly love Soul Whispers." ~ Kathy Parsons, Mainly Piano
“Shoshana’s pianistic arrangements of these melodies are tasteful and respectful, and the tone quality of her playing (and of the recording itself) is refined and elegant. Speaking as someone that’s not from the Jewish faith, it’s not really necessary to know these nigunim in order to enjoy and appreciate Soul Whispers, as Shoshana’s playing and arrangements are really just so beautiful and romantic. The modal harmonies of these Jewish tunes evoke an otherworldly, ancient era. I find that these ancient modal harmonies sound surprisingly fresh to modern ears, but that's really thanks to Shoshana’s superb idiomatic arrangements for piano. I think this recording would be appropriate for reflective purposes: religious services, yoga classes, solo meditation, massage therapy, or simply just to relax and fall asleep by. One doesn't need to know the melodies to revel in their shared beauty and poignancy."

"Shoshana's music is beautiful, uplifting and moving. It takes you on a spiritual journey. I Highly recommend it!” ~ Breindy Klawansky
"Soul Whisper’s must be one of the most moving albums I have listened to for some time and Shoshana Michel has not only honoured her ancestors, but created a wonderful art gallery of music for us to wonder through at our leisure, through this music we can gain an understanding of culture, of respect, of a spiritual love and of oneness." ~ Steve Sheppard, One World Music Radio
“I am sitting here just listening to your music and it is so hauntingly beautiful, I just felt like I had to tell you that. I don't usually listen to instrumental music but this is so meaningful. Thank you for sharing it with us.” - Chana G
