Reviews For "Real World"
"Wonderfully sung songs by a sweet voiced lady, backed by equally exquisite acoustic guitar. If you love beautiful music you will fall in love again. I urge you to check it out." (5 stars & "Editor's Pick")
"Sheer perfection. The CD benefits from a simplicity of approach that allows the music to be timeless and placeless. Long live traditional music, even when it's only just been written."
"This album succeeds in all departments, but what makes it stand out is the exceptional quality and strength of the songwriting. Come the end of 2013, this is sure to be on my list of albums of the year, no question."
"Each and every one of these songs embodies that delicately-crafted quality we associate with true masters of songwriting. Sublime!"
"Combining lush, spiritual acoustic guitar with emotive, poignant vocals truly brings out the best in both artists' offerings. They remind all of us that life, for all its dips and curves, truly is as rich as we make it."
"With Cathryn's distinctive voice and Brian's intuitive guitar accompaniment, the songs are presented with no further embellishment, focusing on the essential part of each of their respective strengths and serving as an accurate record of the duo's live performance."
