"If you like your women classically trained and with a voice as smooth as silk then you'll fall in love with Maud Reardon, from alternative pop/soul group Maud in Cahoots. Fronted by the gorgeous singer/violinist Maud Reardon, Maud in Cahoots' sound also includes tuba, cello, piano and drums which blend to give a distinctive and engrossing sound which they describe as "alternative pop, mixed in with soul, Motown and the occasional glockenspiel solo". No matter how you describe them, it's worth listening to Maud's smooth voice while imagining you were lucky enough to be around in times when people had a bit of class, and a bit of taste."
"One of the things that struck the judges immediately was that Maud has real star quality," Hot Press editor Niall Stokes, who was one of the Guinness Our Thursdays judges, revealed. "From the first heat on, everyone involved felt that Maud In Cahoots' songs are great, and that there is a brilliant quirky pop sensibility at work but what won the competition for them was the fact that they have developed hugely as a live act. Maud has charisma to burn and they are all superb musicians."
“The band, fronted by Dubliner Maud Reardon, are one of Ireland's brightest hopes, having come out on top in a competition that attracted thousands of entries. The band subsequently supported Snow Patrol on the main Arthur's Day stage, to great acclaim. A debut single has been recorded for digital release by Universal Music.”
"Maud In Cahoots are undisputedly one of the finest unsigned acts in the country. The winners of the Hot Press Our Thursdays Final, the band are fresh from supporting Snow Patrol on Arthur’s Day, a show which saw singer Maud Reardon perform a goosebump-inducing duet with Gary Lightbody on ‘Set The Fire To The Third Bar’. Having performed in Philadelphia, Houston and SXSW in Texas, as well as playing sold out shows in The Academy, The Village and Bewleys, Maud In Cahoots shouldn’t stay unsigned for long."
"BRILLIANT..MAUD IN CAHOOTS CERTAINLY HAS A FINE FUTURE AHEAD OF THEM"
