Charlotte Thistle / Press

“Wild Wind is a complete, thoughtful and genuine recording that comes from a true artist.”

“Charlotte Thistle, Seattle's own Sweetheart of Folk, gives us a shiny treasure of a CD with her new release A Girl With A Guitar. Charlotte's voice is sweet and pure -- her voice is exquisite on 'So Blue' -- but with just enough of a quirk to make your ears perk up and stand at attention. Beautiful vocals are backed by her delicate guitar playing and guest musicians are used very sparingly, which is a refreshing change from the usual noise clutter found on many singer songwriter efforts. Along with 'So Blue', which is one of those songs I can listen to over and over and over again, 'Danny', 'Heroin', and 'Reluctant Bride' are all stand out tracks, and Folk Grrrls everywhere will find an anthem to love with 'Mommy, Why?' A Girl With A Guitar is a true folk offering from a genuine folk artist. ”

“. A true folkie, Thistle works solo with an acoustic guitar, and as an artist she ranks up there with Ani di Franco, but isn’t quite so abrasive. This is not to say she’s all fluff and no substance as she can get political and speak out on such topics as war and social injustices, but she does so with an incredible wit. Thistle has no agenda or goals to sell a billion albums; she just wants to sing her songs. It is with this humble mindset she has garnered such fabulous press and has won over so many fans in the Northwest. Her 2005 debut, A Girl With a Guitar, was a thought provoking and insightful recording, which critics salivated over. With simplicity in her music and complexity in her lyrics, she did a balancing act between the two with candor, humor and intelligence. — Tony Engelhart”
