Comments:

I got this too and really like it—but it really really really reminds me of Shakespeare's Sister— her voice is very similar to Marcella Detroit's—but you've got the addition of great violin. (jjhanson@att.net)

Part Kate Bush pixie, part Fiona Apple saucy wench, Autumn's music mixes trip hop and chamber pop. She's an accomplished programmer, a wonderful violinist, and an inventive producer. Plus, she loves her some fairytale lyrics. (ethereal_lad@livejournal.com)

The album is very good, definitely worthy of Ecto attention and support. (afries@zip.com.au)
