New Music Canada review by Kerry Doole.

“The classically-trained Barry has a pure and ethereal voice (Enya is a reference point) that frames emotionally eloquent compositions that dig deep lyrically and feature adventurous arrangements.”

“If you’re looking to an alternative to the usual top 40 offerings and are in the mood for something different, dreamscape-like, trance and ambient, this is an album worth checking out.”

SNAP Magazine – The Unique Sounds of Monique Barry

__________________________________________________________________________

“Monique Barry is a beautiful singer/songwriter who composes touching, heartfelt songs.  Her work contrasts and ranges from dreamy/trance, to joyfully brilliant, and her lyrics can bring you to tears; she has an uncanny way of reaching deep into your soul.”
Natasha Emery, Special Events Supervisor
Programming Economic Development & Culture, City Hall

“A brave and original album – luscious, contemporary, ambient, and cinematic – with lovely, detailed arpeggiations. Some great harmonies, it’s reminiscent at times of Laura Nyro with a touch of Stars and Amy Millan – but [Monique] is very much her own person throughout.  There’s also some San Francisco ’68 and ’69 in there with the Quicksilver guitar and a nod at Brit Canterbury-style prog. Maybe some Procol Harum as well.”
My fave songs: So Long, My Best Guess and Breathe.”
Neil Clarke, Composer, Guitarist (Lloyd Cole and the Commotions)

“Just beautiful: meditative, contemplative, hypnotic. Monique Barry has done it again.”  Blair Packham, Film/Television composer, Singer/Songwriter (Jitters)

It comes from the space between sleeping and waking, where the ethereal has weight, the light comes from within and the body vibrates with aliveness.
Arlene Bishop, Singer/Songwriter
