"...one of the hardest-working women on the local music scene...”
““The Way Home” is, for Vonder Haar, a path marked by facing the music about both the heartfelt and hurtful aspects of belonging, but it’s a rewarding journey and one that will cause listeners to think through their own definition of home.”
“The local singer-songwriter has played her winsome, thoughtful brand of folk in a variety of contexts and concerts. Born in Lupus, Vonder Haar’s deep connection to the area rings through in each word she sings and note she plays, yet there is a universality to the rich manner in which she explores themes of love, community and walking in the world.”
“Three of the area’s leading female musicians have joined forces to create Violet and the Undercurrents. Led by singer-songwriter Violet Vonder Haar, the band also features Phylshawn Johnson and Ruth Acuff, gifted musicians all — the sum of the band’s playing somehow managing to exceed the brilliance of its individual parts.”
"..reminds me of days spent in coffee houses listening to artists and songs with heartfelt messages.."
"...[Violet's] guitar and lyrics, sung in an enchanting voice that reverberates with wisdom and soul, have captivated Columbians’ ears and hearts.."
