Reviews of Dark of Moon cd

“These exquisitely chosen ballads create a spiritual journey through the human soul, with affecting images of darkness and light, strength and weakness, evil and plenty of humor.”
– The Boston Phoenix

“One of the best singers around, to my ear… Lets the song create her style.”
– Gordon Bok

“I love these versions of my songs — there is so much mood to this whole record. It all adds up for me and I am just knocked down by the whole package.”
– Michael Smith (composer of “Dead Egyptian Blues” and “Crazy Mary”)

“Sarah is a singer to be reckoned with. In a folk scene dominated by songwriters it’s refreshing to hear somebody doing great songs they haven’t written — and doing them so well. Her a capella gospel stuff is a knock-out.”
– Orrin Star

“Most of the well-known songs take on new colors and nuances in her performance… Bob Franke owes Stockwell a great debt for her haunting interpretation of his “I But a Little Girl.”
– Sing Out Magazine

“A penetrating touch….finesses some wonderful songs.”
– New England Folk Almanac

“If you are looking for the one CD that you won’t get tired of, Sarah Stockwell’s ‘Dark of Moon’ is the one… enchanting and very entertaining.”
– Mezlim Magazine

“Stockwell is a riveting, mesmerizing performer who deeply feels the music she plays… My one qualm before listening to Dark of Moon was whether Stockwell could capture such feeling on tape. I am happy to report that she has. ”
– FireHeart Magazine

“… Powerful, often stunning… her voice is a gift.”
– Boston Rock Magazine

“Sarah’s ability to weave diverse materials with style, resonance, class and just a playful hint of the bizarre, carries you with the joy of a bedtime story and the impact of ancient myths. She will move you, but you will also smile.”
– Devyn Christopher Gillette, WMFO, Medford, MA
