“An unexpected pleasure…is Genevieve’s flair for writing lyrics which are both perceptive and laced with a dry wit”–  Helen Gregory, Folk Radio UK

Genevieve’s voice is at once reedy, full, playful, caressing and honest, simple and complex and tells a story that draws one in.  It is impossible when listening to this album to not be moved in some way across a broad spectrum of emotions.” -Joe Chauncy, Boxwood
