Strong voice, great charisma.
Schmidt makes grandiose cabaret pop reminiscent of a smoky club in the roaring twenties.
Despite her youth, SCHMIDT - who, at 16, attended music school in London and spent the following year touring the United States - is mature, flirtatious and glamourous.
Süddeutsche Zeitung, 22/05/2012

SCHMIDT is the most promising musical discovery of the year.
