“Jillian Ladage has recorded a beautiful debut album that will certainly introduce her to the world of New Age music. Her singing is hauntingly beautiful and the musical arrangement perfectly performed. Her music is more traditional than Enya, less folksy than Moya Brennan and reminds a little bit of Loreena McKennit.”
"Ladage’s love to the historical world leads us through ancient times, places and customs like on “Midsummer’s Night”, a rhythmic song with brilliant arrangement. The angelic voice sings to an orchestral line-up with keyboards, guitar, cello, violin, bass, hurdy gurdy, drums and bodhràn."
"Walking in the footsteps of Loreena McKennitt would be a daunting task for most musicians to attempt, especially when attempting to form one’s own record label. But Jillian LaDage, with the creation of her label Tarith Cote and the release of her debut record, “The Ancestry,” she is well on her way."
"Like eagle's wings the power of Jillian's music lifts the audience up and away from daily cares, lets the imagination soar across centuries then fills the music hall with awe."
"...a Celtic and Middle Eastern tapestry woven in the dust of ancient Anatolia and Ireland.The whispers of legends and mysteries lost and awaiting discovery echo through the notes of these songs."
"Provocative songs that demonstrate the timelessness of Celtic, classical and Middle Eastern music...placed in capable hands of a talented independent artist..."
