ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
From Discovering Artists (www.discoveringartists.com):
“Whatever she does, she should keep on doing it because this album is acoustic rock magic. Splashed with the thought-provoking lyrics that exude femininity and edge, catchy rhythms and a pure voice, Gretchen Witt has captured my attention. She's got the flair of Mindy Smith and Alison Krauss mixed with a little Catie Curtis and Jewel. Is there anything this woman can't do musically? I doubt it.”

From Red Is All the Rage (www.redisalltherage.com):
“I was blown away with how impressive the album was. New York by way of Ohio singer-songwriter Gretchen Witt is skilled...melding elements of rock, folk, country, and even the blues into skillfully crafted pieces topped with mature and sultry vocals in the vein of country great Neko Case (minus the twang) or folk singer Dar Williams. Still, Witt’s voice is her own and her style distinctly unique..neither formulaic nor contrived. And it’s this unique style that allows her to imbue what may have been otherwise cringe-inducing love songs such as “Say So” with a real meaning that many aspiring singer-songwriters can only hope to accomplish. It’s worth catching her play at one of her favorite spots to see for yourself; this woman deserves a following.”

From Smother.net (www.smother.net):
“Soft rock is the key ingredient in her recipe with a knack for writing a good catchy hook being her secret ingredient. Sure she may write a cooking book worth of great recipes like these songs but what of her actual vocal ability? Well imagine a genetic blending of Tracy Chapman, Norah Jones, and perhaps Natalie Merchant and you’ve got Gretchen’s crooning. New York City are you prepared?”

From Ear Candy (http://earcandy_mag.tripod.com):
“Her voice is both angelic and powerful: this is top of the line.”

From Astro Zombie (www.Astro-Zombie.com):
“Gretchen Witt is folk bliss.”

From Melodic.net (www.melodic.net):
“A soft voice and a beautiful and naked guitar is what meet the ear when you put on this EP. And she is well worth your attention if you like Eva Cassidy with a little Linda Ronstadt-twist here and there (at her soft moments). “Say So” is a favourite. That is such a soft and beautiful tune with Gretchen’s spread voice; an acoustic guitar and a sweeping slide-guitar painting the landscape. Without a doubt the best moment on the E.P and this song is worth the dollars you have to spend on the album at CD BABY if you like the softer school of female singer songwriters.”

From Indie-Music.com (www.indie-music.com):
“No messy metaphors here. Her words are refreshingly straightforward. Damn, but it’s just an EP. I can’t wait to hear a full project from this versatile singer-songwriter.”

From Pucknation (www.pucknation.com):
“Witt, in addition to her vocals, contributes piano and acoustic guitar work that could EASILY stand on it's own, but is well enhanced by the crew she's assembled. They all compliment each other, while no one drowns out her greatest asset... the lyrics. Criminal, which at first I was expecting a cover of the Fiona Apple single, is by far my favorite song. Seriously, I was expecting another female singer/song writer to take a stab at the song, and instead, its an original song that blew me away. It's deep, thought provoking, and just a little guilt ridden. Thank God, because even as a cover-junkie, I didn't want another of that criminal. So, what's next? Well, hopefully a full-length and a major distributor knocking at her door.”

From Rikks Revues (www.rikksrevues.com):
“Gretchen Witt is sure to turn some heads with her debut recording, and gain some real fans along the way. This an EP to be on the search for.”

From Your Music Entertainment, YME (http://ymemusic.com):
“It was said that some notable critics were not even expecting to like her work during one of her shows, but they were pleasantly surprised and exclaimed that
‘another rare gem has made its way to New York City’. Witt maintains a simple approach to writing and creating music, letting all her emotions pour out and making the message heard, instead of manipulating other aspects.
This singer-songwriter is looking to take the world of music by storm. Her powerful, angelic voice is causing more and more heads to turn, and more ears to listen. Supporting new and inspiring artists is what makes the industry thrive and evolve, with artists like Gretchen Witt creating beautiful music and expressing universal emotions through her songs and words.”

I've Got A New Favorite Number...
...and that would be SIX, my friends. This disc so beautifully showcases Gretchen Witt as the triple-threat talent that she is (singer/songwriter/musician)and makes the rest of us performer types study her, envy her and smile our little knowing smiles as more and more folks in the industry take notice of her. Because we knew how amazing she is from moment one. I love every single song on this disc. OK, maybe I love SUNDAY NIGHT a tiny bit more. No particular reason, of course. (wink, wink!)

I listen to it over and over again. I can't get enough.
This is one great CD. Everything about it is so good and I find myself going back to it over and over again. It won't be long before we're hearing Gretchen Witt voice everywhere.

I first saw gretchen perform in the bar i was working at in college on 6th street in austin during SXSW. I bought her cd without thinking twice because her voice was amazing and many years later (3) I am still not tired of it and i will continue to follow her music for a long time to come.
Her voice is classic and her lyrics are real. It's very refreshing to listen to. I feel like she is reaching out and showing an understanding with her voice. She healed my inner demons with songs like "buried alive" and silenced my tears with understanding songs such as "Sunday Night". (Sunday night is a great female anthem).

I'm only sorry it took me this long to discover her
Gretchen Witt is without a doubt my favorite new voice in music, and this CD has only won me over even more. Her vocals and musicianship are fresh and flawless. I've listened to this album over and over and over already, and it seems completely burn-out proof -- unlike so many others.
