Synopsis

Amazon.com
Best known as a featured singer in the musical Riverdance, Katie McMahon debuts with this fine CD on Paradigm Records, featuring members of the Riverdance band. McMahon's classically trained voice positively soars on this album, with a bright, clear sweetness reminiscent of Loreena McKennitt. "Galeno" opens the CD, a ballad in which McMahon's voice is underscored chiefly by acoustic guitar. "Heartland" (from Riverdance) is similar, while the title track (the story of a noblewoman who rescues her love from being hanged) is a fine unaccompanied performance. There are faster songs as well, such as "'Til the Sun Comes Up (Nil Se'n La)," "Down the Moor," and "Breda's Jigs," featuring the dancing rhythms that have made Irish music so popular. Overall, this is a great debut from one of Ireland's loveliest voices. --Genevieve Williams

CD Reviews

Katie has the voice of an angel!!!
Barbara L. Timmer | Cincinnati, Ohio United States | 07/27/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"What can I say that everyone who has heard her voice hasn't already said?Like many people I first heard that divinely lovely voice when I saw Riverdance on PBS. And since I don't want to rave about Riverdance here, I'll simply say that it's WONDERFUL.This album is really good because she chose what she wanted to sing. I particularly like the song called "Heather On The Moor," also really good is "After The Morning."I absolutely plan to buy all of her subsuqnent albums!"
GREAT CD

"Katie does have the voice of an angel. Having listened to her since her days with Anuna (pre-Riverdance), I have always been drawn to her music. Having met her in person, I can also say that behind her beuatiful voice is an extremely nice and lovely person. I wait with much anticipation for her next album which is being worked on as I write this."
Loved it, loved it Loved it!

"OOOhh, i love Katie McMahon's voice! So beautiful! This Cd DEFINATLY has it all! Great buy! A purely simple voice. I don't care what everyone else thinks- THIS is the voice of an angel, NOT Charlotte Church."
