Using her vocal prowess and touching musical interpretations, Nah reaches an audience beyond jazz fans. Her personality and unique musical talents have been praised all around the globe. German magazine Stern said “Her music with ease surpasses all cultural borders without denying its influences.” The Guardian says "A discreet, diminutive vocal giant, Youn Sun Nah keeps insisting on an agenda that’s always her own… A style-blending star."

They described her as "A UFO touching the universe of music with a magnificent voice and passionate originality." She has become one of the most popular jazz singers in Europe.
