“For Larkin's fans, 25 is a way to revisit the past while aurally observing how deeply and fully the singer lives inside her songs as she grows. With its sparse, clean, warm production, this is a fine introduction for the newcomer, to an artist who may not be a household name, but who has consistently pushed at her own boundaries of excellence to become the thing itself.”

“Confirmed guitar wizard Patty Larkin, celebrates a quarter-century in the music business with 25, a collection of love songs and collaborations with the leading lights of folk, including Shawn Colvin, Mary Chapin Carpenter, and Gorka himself.”

“With the help of musical friends – she delivers her most-satisfying album yet.”

“The list of collaborators for Patty Larkin’s latest, “25,” a collection of 25 love songs celebrating 25 years in music, says all you need to hear about her career.”

“Patty Larkin is one of the most gifted performers in music today. A remarkable guitarist, an imaginative and versatile vocalist, Larkin turns in a riveting performance.”

Michael Parrish - Chicago Tribune

“Her voice can be breathy and confiding, tinged with the blues or infused with Joni Mitchell’s pearly depth.”

“An uncommonly articulate guitarist, she has evolved into one of the finest self-accompanists anywhere in popular music.”

“For Patty Larkin, Valentine’s Day lasts quite a bit longer this year. To celebrate a quarter century of recording music, the 11-time Boston Music Award-winner will share a reworked love song, in collaboration with fellow singer-songwriters like John Gorka and Mary Chapin Carpenter, on her Web site”

“Larkin purveys mood music with a firm emotional core - a sound that's serene yet surreal, one that treads softly while whispering seductively.”
