“Fronted by the haunting siren calls of Irene Lambrou, the Philadelphia-based Medea has a fresh bunch of spell-casters and a new album (“Some Other Life“) to dazzle and intrigue in prog-rock/folk/jazz fashion.”



Medea’s “upcoming album Some Other Life is the product of two years of hard work. It melds jazz and earthy tones.”

-Jump Philly Magazine


“The quintet Medea plays dreamy elegant pop highlighted by the burnished alto of lead singer Irene Lambrou.”

- Michael Harrington, The Philadelphia Inquirer


“Fronted by the throaty, dramatic thrush Irene Lambrou, Medea will put a spell on you with their dreamy music I’d dub ‘goth-elegant.’… Lush keyboard flourishes, buzzy Jorma Kaukonen-style guitar and a slick rhythm section add to a production sheen so finessed a major label could put out this set [Dreams & Revelations] with pride. Fans of classically-influenced popsters such as October Project, (early) King Crimson and Renaissance will like ‘em. So, too, will devotees of Heart, Indigo Girls and Sade. Grade: A.”

- Jonathan Takiff, Philadelphia Daily News


“Lambrou’s rich colorful singing voice works powerfully with Robinson’s carefully constructed chord progressions and the rest of the band’s polished musicianship.”

- Claudia Ginanni, The Legal Intelligencer


“…dreamy, reflective and sultry, its jazzy, progressive-tinged pop best played in a dark room late at night. The Miracle Line is the extremely accessible follow-up to Dreams & Revelations, which received glowing Philadelphia-area reviews and radio airplay on WXPN 88.5 FM….”

- Andy Vineberg, Bucks County Courier Times


The Miracle Line has a clean, folky, XPN vibe, full of ethereal lyrical ruminations and layered harmonies. Like the Nields on Zoloft…”

- Pat Rapa, Philadelphia CityPaper


“The nicest ballad-band in town? That could be Medea… dreamy but sinister electro-jazzy folk..”
