Press, peers and the BBC agree on one thing-Sally Spring is the "real deal". Called "a treasure" (Gene Parsons, The Byrds) and "a gem" (Bob Harris, BBC), Sally's "transfixing, gorgeous alto" (Sing Out!), first-rate compositions (No-Depression) and "fantastic phrasing" (Net Rhythms, UK) give her music a tear-at-your-heart, "emotional complexity" (Net Rhythms, UK) that is mesmerizing.

Accompanied by her husband, the eclectic, rhythmic Ted Lyons (on the vintage resonator), Sally's voice is her own "like that of Emmylou Harris, Natalie Merchant and Tracy Chapman" (Das Rock, Germany), paints an Americana musical portrait that "reaches deep inside, is beautifully layered, has something to say and generates emotional heat that is white hot."
