Reviews

“Loizou is also a poet.His singing self-accompanied on the guitar is just as impassioned and endearing. He has passion, pathos and humor. ”
Anna Vlach, The Advertiser

“Odysseus’ (Loizou’s) song reminds us all that it is better to have loved and lost the loved one, than never to have loved at all.”
Jan Kershaw, Glam Adelaide

“ Odysseus sings to them; and in this show it is the first of Loucas Loizou’s beautiful and melodic songs, “Count Your Blessings”.”
Tony Knight, Stage Whispers
