Reviews: 


Ms. Currie's voice is uniquely beautiful-- rich and sensual, yet also a perfect match for the sad/haunting songs that predominate her work (and I can also strongly recommend her earlier CDs: "No Heroes" and "Standing Stones"). Aside from the great "3 Lady J's" of folk music (i.e. Joan Baez, Judy Collins and Joanie Mitchell), Carolyn Currie is my favorite female singer. - Amazon.com Customer Review 

"Carolyn Currie is an incredible songwriter with a unique voice that sets her apart from her contemporaries . . . in our opinion, Carolyn is simply a stunning artist." - Circular Records

"I own a new age shop and get dozens of CD demos. Many are very good, but only once in a blue moon do I get one that just knocks my socks off. Kiss of Ghosts did just this. The CD is truly mesmerizing. Carolyn's voice is just wonderful, sweet but not fragile, full of emotion. The imagery she paints with her lyrics transports me . . . I have run the whole gamut of emotion listening to this CD, empowered, vengeful, reminiscent, and charmed. She is a masterful writer." - Cindy, The New Millennium

"Currie has a sure voice that steadily relates to each and every person it touches with an exceptional confidence that tattles away tales that we've all experienced. Her songs, while fragile, have a sort of underlying fierce determination that demand to be heard and refract the light tones perfectly. Utterly outstanding." - J-Sin, Smother.net

"Carolyn . . . has recently released, Kiss of Ghosts, her third album and the first to be marketed through New Muse Music, a society of women for women and music. Her enchanting voice, evocative melodies and hauntingly moving lyrics make this one of the finest singer-songwriter records to have come my way this past twelve months. There is a strong Celtic feel on some of the tracks, due in no (small) part to the inventive use of pennywhistle, acoustic guitars, cello, fiddle and accordion, not to mention the ethereal harmonies that easily draw comparisons to Enya; though Carolyn has quite a different sound and approach than the Irish singer. For starters, Carolyn`s lyrics are much more open, so that the listener can connect with the emotional punch like the unrequited love of Swallowing Stones. A gorgeous little record well worth seeking out." - Maverick Magazine

"The ghosts spoken of in these songs are the kind of memory and longing, but they're not sad or sappy. I want to write "crystalline," but I don't want you to read it as "wimpy." This is a strong woman, refined but passionate. I can't speak for Nathaniel Hawthorne, you know? But I think he would like this music as much as I do." - Bonny Holder, Rockzillaworld Magazine
