Wow nice find
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is why I love Amazon - you can find a new artist, listen to a few samples, and fall in love. That's what happened with me. I was hooked with "Mi Caballo" but I listened to them all and love everyone. Kind of folky Tori Amos with hints of Joan Baez. This is a really nice CD, you should really try a few samples."
A rare jewel
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Erin Corday is a rare artist who matches the quality of her lyrics with the drive of her music. She creates a world that is enchanting, humorous, and at times more real than this one. Corday's music is at once personal and political, powerful and fragile, fierce and tender... she treats the guitar at times like a drum, at other times like a koto. Once you hear it, you will be hooked forever.Painted Door is a collection of American and Latin songs and rhythms, humorous banter and a capella magic. It opens with the beautiful Chilean folksong "Mi Caballo," also including a tender version of the Mexican standard "La Bamba" and "El Tigre," an original song in Portuguese. Corday's amazing vocal percussion shines on "Didjago" (skipping stones) and her signature piece, "Land of Sweetness." Playing flamenco and acoustic guitars and the 8-string jarana from Mexico.No worn trails here - Painted Door is another brilliant effort from one of the most persistently creative artists around."
Pretty good

"I'd never heard of her but the samples sounded okay so I bought it. It's a pretty good cd. I won't say I loved every song but about half are really good and the rest are decent. I would reccomend it to anyone looking to add something fresh to their collection."
