"Wonders In the Deep" is one of the best precisely balanced vocal and instrumental recordings that I have ever enjoyed. Pleasurable all the way through.
“Her music succeeds in invoking feelings of weightlessness, causing you to feel like you are floating from note to note. The looping sensation of Mary-Kathryn's voice strings every word together, making it seem as if spaces or punctuation do not exist in music.”
“I felt like this extraordinary music was a great example of how much you can create with so little..more melodic and structured than simple Ambient, and floating with soulfulness thanks to this phenomenal voice..a bit like Kate Bush meets Enya. Just take a listen, I implore, to Mary-Kathryn & Different World”
“Sophisticated without being elitist; understated without being simplistic, Mary-Kathryn displays an emotional depth that can only be described as remarkable.”
“Mary-Kathryn does a very cool mix of mystical lyrics with a lot of different world influences. I had a great time tracking tunes for her. It always gets your imagination going.”
"Mary-Kathryn is a gifted singer/songwriter whose music resonates with warmth and a hope-filled charm . . . But the most affecting instrument on the album is Mary-Kathryn's lovely voice. Theres a purity and clarity of tone that makes for soothing listening."
“. . . every song makes me feel like a child of wonder again, finding a cluster of uniquely designed shells and stones on the beach. Holding each up to the ear speaking in whispers, cries, shouts, laughter...it's absolutely amazing. ”
"The melding together of pop, folk, world and ambient influences makes this a totally absorbing album . . ."
"Mary-Kathryn's voice is captivating and mature - ripe with beauty and passion."
". . . Dreams & Visions is a transcendental listening experience. A truly rapturous collection, highly recommended."
"I love your CD!"
". . . great musicianship, excellent production skills, and last but not least, expressed by Mary-Kathryn's magical and mesmerizing voice that is singing from the one heart that connects us all."
"Dreams & Visions is a musical banquet offering delicacies for the heart, soul and mind."
"Mary-Kathryn has built a loyal following that appreciates her gentle yet passionate vocals, the mysticism of her music and the prophetic nature of her lyrics which have a broad-based sacredness to them."
". . . you hear that in her (Mary-Kathryn) a fire burns, which speaks to your imagination. Interlarded with world music, the lyrics she wrote paint an exotic canvas, which especially puts God into the center."
“What you are doing is so fresh - and real..."Incense of Praise" was the #1 requested song of 2008 on KNLR/KNLX here in Oregon. You are a new pioneer.”
“This is great driving music, for body and spirit: food for the soul, candy for the heart, and balm for the mind. Crank it up, so you can hear it over the vacuum, and dance the house clean — mood and matter. ”
". . . one of the most admirable things about Dreams & Visions: its willingness to think outside the box."
"Many of the tracks are uptempo and with her (Mary-Kathryn's) voice gliding on top are reminiscent of Rumours-era Fleetwood Mac and even the Gaelic dream music of Clannad and Enya."
