Album Notes
Marlene Hershey’s tenth and latest original project, “Gospel Ragtime and Solitude” is bursting with awesome and unique variety resulting in astoundingly amazing sounds which will enthrall the listener.
This album has received excellent reviews. The engineer was Ron Fairchild who was with the Oak Ridge Boys for 30 years and he said to her, “It is a good album. You play the piano good." His wife told her "It is a spectacular album!" The gentleman who pressed the CDs said "Great job!! Very nice." And when referring to CdBaby he said "Wait till they hear it.”
The session guitarist predicted it will be all over the internet!


to write a review


Marlene’s album starts with a high-energy rendition of the popular gospel song, “A Wonderful Time Up There” but slows down as it transitions to the classic hymn, “Holy, Holy, Holy.” These set the tone for the rest of the project—an equal mix of vintage country-tinged gospel and classically styled songs of faith.

Marlene poured her heart into this album and it shows in her rollicking and lyrical arrangements. She even throws in a “music box” arrangement of “Jesus Loves Me” that is sure to delight. If you’re looking to be encouraged and meditative by turns, this CD delivers ample opportunities for both.


You can tell Ms Hershey put a LOT of effort into this album. She is very passionate about music and plays beautifully. There is a nice variation of songs and instruments. I was suprised by the ensemble. I was expecting for her to be playing the piano as a solo piece! It was pleasantly suprising to hear her include drums , electric guitar, classical guitar, bass, strings, and even an electric organ!! Thank you Marlene for sharing your gift!!!

This is a winner
This cd of spiritual music lifts the soul. The arrangements are wonderful and also have variety. It is obvious that Ms. Hershey plays from her heart. This is definitely a winner.


I enjoy this CD very much. It is a great CD for background music and for listening to while relaxing. Thank you Marlene for sharing your gift and for all of your hard work!

Gospel Ragtime and Solitude
I especially appreciate on this album, the song "The Old Rugged Cross". The message of the words comes through very clearly in the music that Marlene plays.
