Mary Shepard

hauntingly beautiful
the crystalline vocals, eloquently simple arrangements and evocative songwriting all come together beautifully in this hauntingly sad CD. It's gorgeous, and I recommend it even if you aren't mourning a lost love.

Lindsay

awesome cd, very meloncholy
This music is very sad, indeed for the unconsolable. Not going into personal detail, during a troubling time in my life, this music is beautiful and mellow.
