"Dione understands how to get to the emotional centre of a song; how to make you feel what she feels. It's all about heart, and Dione puts her whole heart into everything she sings."
~ Andy Sheppard. Host of CBC After Hours
"The Saskatchewan born, Toronto based vocalist's latest CD, I Love Being Here With You, should catapult her into the forefront of a crowded field of Canadian jazz singers."
~ Leonard Turnevicius. Hamilton Spectator
"The second album by Canadian songstress Dione Taylor I Love Being Here With You, finds Taylor in fine form and backed up by an orchestra of top rated, world-class musicians, producers and arrangers. With no end of talent from song to song, there is something for everyone on this recording. Taylor sings from the heart, she has a rhythm and blues base to work from and each and every song swings con-passione. The production is of award-winning quality and highlights Taylor's intriguing style. Dione Taylor is a very soulful, bluesy singer who has developed a nice sound that is all her own."
~ Paul J. Youngman. Live Music Report
"As usual Dione's in fine form - will be surprised if this isn't a winner".
~ Dave Milbourne. Toronto Jazz
"You don't have to be a jazz purist to love being near this new album by Dione Taylor. The former Reginan who's building an impressive career in Toronto goes in many vocal directions without losing her way on her new album."
~ Saskatoon StarPhoenix
