CD Reviews

Modern folk by a luminous singer.
04/12/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Mary Sue sings skillfully about a higher ideal of love. Lost, found, observed, and fondly remembered. Not just eros, but the love between friends, family, and even childhood neighbors. Her singing combines a naturally beautiful voice with excellent control and versatility. Mainly focusing on modern folk, Mary Sue also sings a traditional Gaelic folk song and a gospel song she wrote. Aided by Pete Kennedy's seemless and transparent producing, "training butterflies" closely simulates Mary Sue's live performances which are also well worthing catching. Listening to Mary Sue's singing can brighten a cloudy day or make you look at a beautiful day in a new light. You can think of her as St. Johns Wort for the soul. As an artist, she aptly shares her unique vision of the world, a world where love never dies. Do yourself a favor, check out this well-crafted first album."
Beautiful, lyrical songs of love and friendship
03/24/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is a beautiful lyrical CD that I enjoy very much. Most songs were written by Ms Twohy and are beautifully performed. I especially enjoy the song "Amy Lynn", a ballad of childhood friendship. It brought back memories of my own childhood and the friends I have lost touch with. The final song is a ballad to St Cecilia, the patron saint of music in which Ms Twohy uses the phrase "Those who sing pray twice" If that is the case, then this album is a soaring Alleluia to the heavens."
Good Things Come In Small Packages

(5 out of 5 stars)

"I feel so fortunate to come across people quite by accident.
I checked out a small concert series called, The Art Of The Song.
It was one of the best decisions I have made because I got to hear and meet Mary Sue Twohy. Mary Sue is a little girl but a big talent. I am moved by just about every song on this disc. A crystal clear voice and solid guitar playing. Favorite songs are, Autumn Night, I want to learn this one. Color Me, Can't Buy A New Heart, Amy Lynn, they are all good. As I look through the CD booklet I can't find a weak song on this disc. I am so happy to have met Mary Sue and even happier to hear her whenever I feel like playing this CD. And I do play it often."
