"Her voice Kind of had that Diana Ross swag to me in this song. To me it was like what Diana Ross would sound like if she did poetry. Don't get it twisted, she got some fiyah pieces too. "
“Alchemy is defined as “any magical power or process of transmuting a common substance, usually of little value, into a substance of great value”. With the release of The Alchemist, her second spoken word album, Epiphany Castro does just that with words. She takes simple little words and transforms them into powerful images and beautiful stories. Images of love, life and everything in between. Stories like the first time she was called the N-word. Her words and the sensual melodies they are laid upon take you on a journey, making stops along the way at pain, acceptance, fear and joy. Spoken word lovers everywhere should make it a point to add The Alchemist into their collections, so head on over to CD Baby and get your copy today.”
“ "Epiphany has given the world her second release, a highly anticipated and long awaited second album. She has been reputed as the “love poet” by the nature of her expositions in poetic form; almost as a subject matter expert she eloquently laces the tracks with therapeutic vocals. Her second album titled “The Alchemist” is head-and-shoulders above the 2009 release. The first thing you’ll notice is the musical accompaniments compliments her well trained and better seasoned delivery, it seems that the relationship between music and poems are a perfect match. If you love ambient beats and love/erotic poetry with a delicate storytelling vocalist, The Alchemist is your delight. There are a few explosive breaks from the love theme with idylls and dithyrambs, but they bring you right back to the affair of this body of work; Epiphany’s fluency, love poetry."”
