Reviews

"Marnie Boyd's music is relaxing without being edgeless. She sings and plays the harp and the piano to great effect. There are similarities in her style and Loreena McKennitt's. ‘Sleeping Partner’ showcases Boyd's expert harp-playing and boasts a stirring melody. The vocal parts are beautiful and a little eerie in places. ‘Holiday’ is very atmospheric. It conjures a mood of restfulness that goes well with the title. ‘Ca the Yowes’ is by Robert Burns and Boyd treats it with respect and makes it haunting. ‘Take My Hand’ is beautifully made and dynamic in a Celtic folk style. ‘Blue Serenade’ is very intriguing. Marnie Boyd's near operatic vocals and the sweet melody make it great. It's a very rewarding album in all."

- Anna Maria Stjarnell and Amy, Producer of Collected Sounds at www.collectedsounds.com


“Singer/songwriter/harpist Boyd sports a beautiful, professionally schooled soprano which conjures an altogether distinctive vibe when married to her harp notes. ‘Song of the Wheels’ has a neo-Celtic breeze blowing through it, while the poetic, evocative ‘Sleeping Partner’ has a more contemporary pop feel. All of this attractively packaged disc is spotlessly recorded and could gain this UCLA film composing student some attention from peers.”

- Music Connection Magazine

"With the haunting voice of Loreena McKennit and the knack for a story like Tori Amos if she fancied harp rather than piano, these moody and fluid New Age Folk beauties draped in Celtic-flavored harp and melodious vocals ease their way into the soft pockets of mysteries and daydreams. Gentle yet rousing, these songs glisten and sparkle with the color of morning."

-Tamara Turner, CD Baby Music Editor/Reviewer
