- Cheryl Wheeler possesses one of the most gorgeous voices of anyone in the folk, or any, genre. With an unbelievable range, her tone is so rich and expressive there is almost no lyric she cannot make interesting. Add her skill as a songwriter and you have one of the most talented folk musicians of the last 30 years. Elmore Magazine
- Rare artist . . . strong poetry, complex melodies, clever wit. Sing Out!
- From the ridiculous to the sublime, Cheryl Wheeler really knows how to write and perform a love song, as well as its alter-ego, the breaking-up or lost-love song. Driftwood Magazine

- Rachel Marie’s music is refreshing, poetic, and pointed. Often powerful, her songs also reveal an underlying sense of humor and an insightful perspective through both lyrics and melody. In a live setting, her passion for performance shines through. Rachel connects with her listeners through a magically complementary mix of music and message. Her album There is Love is a terrific collection of songs: all well worth a listen or three. Nick Noble, host of THEFOLKREVIVAL on WICN (Worcester Public Radio)
- Rachel’s stories and finger style guitar playing create song-scapes rather than just your average tune. Melody and harmony are prevalent, but the experience is what you go home with. Add in a brilliantly woven, genuine and sometimes silly banter and Rachel’s unique show will stay with you a long time. Tom Bianchi, 24 Hour Music, LLC
