Calling You (Marjorie Richards and The Meddlers

"There is a purity in Marjorie Richards' voice that reaches into your heart, grabs you and doesn't let go until the last beautiful note has faded. Match that purity with the clarity of her lyrical vision and you have an artist and an album you'll go back to time and time again."

--Neil Fagen, The Performing Songwriter Magazine

"It's a beautiful album...Marjorie's music is hearfelt.She has an immediate rapport with the listener, honest vocals and great musical delivery"

--Kelly Wright, KMTT (AAA) 103.7 (Seattle)

" With lyrics that beg listening to, Marjorie Richards' original material conveys stories about the deepest feelings of life, forged from the every day activities of life, like going to the grocery store, or the hair salon, or fixing the house. The music is unique in its contemporary folk style, yet similar to some mainstream music complete with the natural melodic hooks and superbly clean vocals, not unlike Sarah McLachlin."

--Central Washington's Entertainment News

"This long awaited debut recording from Richards is full of insightful lyrics, thought-provoking attitudes. Her straightforward honest vocals draw you into her world, exposingglimpses of everything from the deepest corners of the heart to the liberating power ofhairdressers...this collection of well-written originals explains why Richards was a three-time finalist at the famed Telluride Troubadour contest."

--Janis Carper, The Victory Review

"Stripped-down singer/songwriter material that is as startling in its quality as it is simple in its approach. Some artists are very easy to quantify. They are easy to describe because you know exactly what you like and don't like. Richards isn't such an artist. Her music is so undeniably good but for extraordinarily difficult reasons to pin down. But I won't stop trying. I guess I'll just have to listen to this disc over and over and over until I get an answer. What a job!

-- Rick Teverbaugh, WAXT-FM (Indiana)
