"On her first "solo" venture, Ms. Kennedy unleashes her better pop angels and her most tormenting demons on "Parade of Echoes," a near-Spectorian symphony of ebullient/anguished ruminations on any True Lover's worst fears, denials and fervent hopes." - Jim Musser, Iowa City Press Citizen 12/31/09
"Over the last fifteen years we've come to expect only Maura Kennedy's best. "Parade of Echoes" surpasses those great expectations...an extraordinary solo debut" - Mike Jurkovic, FAME (Folk & Acoustic Music Exchange)
