'Ann Sweeten possesses a remarkable talent. A musician whose extensive classical training is immediately apparent, she is also someone who writes from a great emotional depth. As her producer it is a joy to hear someone who exploits the entire potential of the piano, finding both dynamics and beauty in all 88 keys. Her pieces have a broad stylistic range and yet create a cohesive program of music very distinctively hers. This is a brilliant recording from start to finish.'
—Will Ackerman, Grammy Winning Producer
'Sweeten's playing is strong and confident, but also feels tender and vulnerable as she looks within for answers to life's questions. In a few words, this is a gorgeous and emotionally powerful album.'
—Kathy Parsons, MainlyPiano.com
'Ann Sweeten's Grey Sky and Bittersweet is an album that showcases her classical instrumental training and gift for composition. On each song, Sweeten exhibitis a smoldering fire and profundity that will certainly transcend to listeners.'

Her piano playing has never been better, ...superb on both collaborative and solo pieces.'
