"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.
