"After having the honor of watching Marya Stark's live show in my town and enjoying her album entitled "The Garden" my only comment is "tour de force."The world that she lives in is a pure breakthrough, not only for the writer but for the very possibilities of songwriting. The artist and her album provide an extended impressionistic account rich in pictorial detail and erotic longing. This was an acute dissection of one woman, the tangible and fantasy, her longing for absent ideals. She is both real and an addiction. As bruce sang, marya stark "is all that heaven will allow." -
