"Tracing Light is an album that draws the listener into a deep and mysterious world of vocal beauty, superb musicianship, and shining intelligence."
- Robert Sadin, multi-Grammy award winning producer
"It could be argued that Biali's path — from growing up in North Vancouver to living life in the Big Apple — is encapsulated in her latest album. Tracing Light sounds like an old nighttime black-and-white photograph, the tail lights of cars leaving sinuous imprints of their paths long after they have gone."
- Vancouver Sun
"The tunes on Tracing Light range from sensitive treatments of jazz standards to funky piano workouts - but for all its stylistic range, Biali's latest is still accessible."
- Eye Magazine
