House of Many Rooms - ON BACK ORDER

"House of Many Rooms is a captivating recording, brash and intimate, that backs Biali’s bell-like voice with horns, strings and the Toronto Mass Choir. I’ve long wondered when Biali would release a
recording that lives up to her extraordinary potential. This is it."
–Paul Wells, Maclean's Magazine

"Biali's breathy vocal chops complement the musicianship of the accompaniments here, but it's the sum of Laila Biali's many talents that make House of Many Rooms so compelling." Rated 9/10
–Michael J. Warner, Exclaim!
