Church’s fragility of phrasing, hot and sexy delivery and indescribable vocal edges of world-weary wonderment combine to provide listeners with one of the finest discs to appear on this country’s soundscape to date.
There’s no mistaking the Alberta-based folk country singer’s precise bell-like voice. Once you hear it, you will know automatically who it is.
An absolutely delightful singer with an astonishing range of styles… beautifully phrased slow songs, marvelous country tunes, a little jazz and some western swing… she doesn’t put a foot wrong, singing with complete assurance and a voice which oozes feeling and discernment. A true original and a real treat.
The Lunch at Allen’s show was sublime. One we will never forget, one of our best yet! The feedback was fabulous. Lots of thank you’s from our audience. These four performers are just so polished and accomplished at what they do and their rapport with each other is priceless. Long standing ovations.
Quartette is an example of great group chemistry based on graceful, natural, thrilling harmony singing and equally strong songs.
I’ve been the host of Morningside for almost twelve years, and there have been few musical moments more exciting than the appearance and performance of the four women who make up Quartette.
…but the real beauty of the 14 song collection is the harmonizing of the four singers [Quartette], whose voices blend together like intricate embroidery.
The seraphic four-part harmonies of Sylvia, Cindy, Caitlin and Gwen are a boundless source of delight. Quartette vocalizes like they’ve grown up on the same street…in the same family. The counter pointed intermingle of human voices can sound positively celestial. This was the case with Quartette.
…A superbly seasoned supergroup (Quartette) culled from the four corners of Canadian country…work up real magic.
Several times over the last 10 years… I have attempted to describe Cindy Church’s vibrant voice, its striking sweetness in conveying intimate sincerity, and how, without being seductive, it still seduces the senses.
