Meklit delivers a sound all her own. - USA TODAY
I've been listening to Meklit for days. This new album will INVOLVE you! – NPR's ANN POWERS
“You may not have heard Meklit's music before, but once you do, it’ll be tough to forget. Her sound is a unique blend of jazz, Ethiopia, the San Francisco art scene and visceral poetry; it paints pictures in your head as you listen.” -  NPR
"Her afro reaching towards the sun, her voice swimming its way across borders, Meklit blends sounds and sayings of her native Ethiopia with a style that evokes the nuanced windings of black American jazz and soul... We Are Alive [is] a stunning medley of songs that showcase Meklit’s growth since her 2010 debut, On A Day Like This." -  MTV IGGY
“Soulful, tremulous and strangely cinematic, Hadero’s voice will implant scenes in your mind — a softly lit supperclub, a Brooklyn stoop, a sun-baked road. Close your eyes, listen and dream. - SEATTLE TIMES
"A blithe-voiced daughter of Joni who considers music a path to higher ground, with rest stops for the likes of Talking Heads and Lou Reed." – THE VILLAGE VOICE
"Meklit Hadero is a local treasure if there ever was one. The Ethiopian-born, Bay Area-dwelling songstress blends African and American blues, jazz and folk sounds with a constantly surprising level of grace and magnetism." -KQED SAN FRANCISCO
Meklit's Kemekem video is listed as a top African track/video on two BBC roundups + OkayAfrica + BeeHype + MAPP Africa
"A wildly groovy style of music." - ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY
"[MEKLIT] has perfected a folky/jazzy style…a mix of Joni Mitchell, Norah Jones and Nina Simone" – CHICAGO SUN-TIMES
"Meklit… combines N.Y. jazz with West Coast folk and African flourishes, all bound together by her beguiling voice, which is part sunshine and part cloudy day.” - FILTER MAGAZINE
"Lilting, sensuous, capable of the leap from staccato jazz-cat to honeyed songbird, she conveys both fragility and great strength in a single line" – SAN FRANCISCO BAY GUARDIAN (*cover story)
“Meklit Hadero is one of those rare artists with the power to bridge genres, geography and generations.” -GOOGLE MUSIC
"Blown away by "We Are Alive," the new album by @meklitmusic, one of the greatest jazz singer-songwriters of our time." - MARIA POPOVA, BRAIN PICKINGS
"Here comes a delightful music superstar with substance... I love the raw ambition of the “We Are Alive” album – the preposterousness, the simplicity and also the fundamental intelligence. If champagne were a person it would be Meklit." - ROOMS MAGAZINE UK
