"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." -
"Marya Stark’s voice feels as if she were reaching her hands out toward you as if to say, “Come, I’ll show you things you have never seen. I’ll take care of you on the journey. If we were to look at the lines that map Marya’s palms, we would definitely see an old soul. That voice. It is as pure as a newborn’s breath and yet it sounds like history – the cries of joy, the whispers of intimacy and the whimpers of sadness of a thousand lifetimes."
““The Garden” really does feel like the place for everything. The album just doesn’t sit still and each song has moments where you sit back and think “wow”. Marya Stark’s album genuinely impresses and impales your heart. Mesmerising from start to end. I want everyone to hear her.””
"By far one of the best albums I've heard in 2012, this project made my hair stand up in utter amazement at how musically, vocally, and sonically incredible The Garden is. If I had a million dollars to invest in an artist, Marya would get my full financial support."

She is a force of nature that will rock you awake as gently as a ladybug landing on the tip of your nose.
