Swil Kanim

Reviews:

"Framed through mirrors and portals of memories, Marcia reflects and resonates the emotions and moods of human experience in her jazzy blues tunes. You can't listen to Marcia's songs without getting to know and appreciate her sweet sincere and totally honest self..... Marcia's style is upbeat and optimistic with her catchy rhythmic choruses and and her genuine warm laughter and smile bringing empathy to her audience..."
Beth Marsau
NW Events & Lifestyle Review

"On several tracks the music is more nightclub, jazzy, western swing, even bluegrass sounded......a special kind of folkrootsmusic, I do appreciate!!
Ray Pieters-Dreesens
"Somewhere Between", Radio Milo 103.1 FM, BELGIUM

"Hologram is one of the funniest, poignant and subtle songs I've ever come across. They've captured this 40s/2000 sound which defies description. Required listening at Starfleet Academy."
George Francis Maida
"The Electric Croude", 88.9fm WCVE, Richmond, VA

"Her singing is hard to describe as it is pretty unique...a strong vocal that has a sweet sense to it.. Her songwriting ability is obvious...clever and often insightful... often the really good talents make it look (and sound) easy...A solid project that deserves a listen.."
Armand Canales
The Critical Review Service, El Paso, TX

"...originality and impact, both as a writer and a singer...warm sincere music from a dedicated local artist."
Richard Middleton
Victory Music Review, Seattle, WA

"... Marcia and crew are often a beat away from early folk, sometimes with a touch of white jive in there.... If you believe that guts and old-fashioned shoes get you where you need to be, you will appreciate what goes on here ..."
Ben Ohmart
Muses Muse Music Reviews

"Marcia's music takes a significantly different tack stylewise ... and also relies on her own songwriting ability to bring her music into your centre of attention....."
Terry Allen
