Glowing Reviews Are Pouring In For Marion's Debut Solo Album (July 2019)!

Glowing Reviews Are Pouring In For Marion's Debut Solo Album (July 2019)!

 

 

Marion Halliday shows her talents in a traditional way, taking cues from her predecessors like Peter, Paul and Mary, Pete Seeger, Odetta, Joan Baez and others that sought to use their musical talents to convey and communicate a new way of thinking, to bring a message of hope to those that felt hopeless. As in her song “Thoughts and Prayers” she tackles the highly emotionally charged issue of the unnecessary loss of life happening in our world, but not by pointing a finger of blame, but by extending her hand in love and understanding, her songs are miraculous, her voice is a new beacon of peace in this troublesome time. 

Joe Timmons, July 2019, Indie Pulse Music

 

This timeless tune [Rings Around Saturn] from Marion Halliday is beautifully sung and beautifully captured.. . It would be very easy to make comparisons to both the The Staves and First Aid Kit at this point, but the truth is. . .  Marion doesn’t sound like either of them...It’s a delicate and thoughtful piece that showcases a tremendous, characterful vocal.  

Chris Porter July 2019, Stereo Stickman

 

radio & Podcasts

Special thanks to all the DJs/Stations that have had Marion on their shows to talk about her music- the support and love means more than words. And many, many thanks as well to the dozens who have been playing her music and especially the music of her newest album.  Its due to this support that the album landed at #3 on the folk radio charts and  Marion at #3 as well in the album's debut in July 2019 (based on data compiled by Folk Alliance International).
