March 1, 2019: “Back Porch Swing” at The Laurie Beechman Theater, New York City: “Alto Sierra Rein’s vocal versatility is well-known in New York’s cabaret community, and kudos to Hemming for showcasing it in featured vocal lines that swooped thrillingly from deep in her chest register up into the stratosphere. A deeply grounded performer, her un-showoffy featured turns (I’ll Be Seeing You (Irving Kahal, Sammy Fain) and Stompin’ At The Savoy (Benny Goodman, Edgar Sampson, Chick Webb, Andy Razaf)) were riveting in their simplicity and vocal luster.” – Jennie Litt, Cabaret Hotspot.
